Give some mental stimulation while you're gone some dog puzzle toys or something, and an old blanket or t-shirt with your scent to leave with the pup. This is a dog that by no means should be left outside all the time. It needs people interaction, socialization with other people and dogs. A pool should always have a fence around it and a puppy this young never left alone all day. Show the pup the stairs into the pool, so it knows how to get in and out but don't leave it outside unsupervised. Coax it in and see if it will go swimming with you, they love the water and are good swimmers but remember this pup is still very young and may not be able to get out by itself.
