The normal balance of chemicals in a treated pool would not be enough to harm most dogs. Some with sensitive skin may have problems, but other than that it is generally safe for your dog to take a dip in the pool. The pool chemicals, if undiluted, could harm a dog and should be stored out of the dogs area.
