    How to enjoy swimming with your dog?

    Articlegeneral dog adviceThursday 23 June 2011

    It is believed that all the dogs enjoy swimming, however some cannot swim and others just hate it! You should be aware of this as your dog might not be so happy about being thrown into the depp water.

    When swimming for the first time with your dog, we recommend you start in shallow water and encourage your pooch to follow you by calling its name. You can also try your dog’s favourite toys or treats. Forget about throwing your dog into the water! When your dog starts to paddle with its front legs, try to lift his hind legs and help him float. He should quickly catch on. Remember not to let your dog overdo swimming as it’s hard work and he might get tired quickly.
