Doing the Dog Paddle: Tips on Teaching Your Dog to Swim

Not all dogs know how to swim. Not all dogs can swim. Not all dogs like swimming (I have one). However, if you are at a lake, in an ocean, have a pool & these are places you spend time at, it’s critical to teach your dogs to swim & where is the exit or place to climb out of. My dogs always wear their life jackets when in and around water. It helps with the following:
1) keeps them visible, especially to boaters & skiers.
2) if they get tired, have a cramp, all of sudden can’t swim for whatever reason then it will help keep them from drowning.
3) it helps keep their head up out of the water & prevents them from taking in too much water.
Happy Swimming!!!
