WoofPost.Com - Teaching Dogs To Swim

Laguna Niguel, CA - Most dogs enjoy playing in water. Their enjoyment, plus that of their owners, can be increased by making sure the dog knows how to swim and is safe in the water. Swimming is great exercise and a good way for dogs to cool off on a hot day.


Some breeds just naturally take to water and usually become excellent swimmers. The water loving breeds include the retrievers and spaniels as well as poodles, who were originally bred as hunting and retrieving dogs.

Other breeds are just not built for the water or for swimming. These breeds include the bulldog, pug, Dachshund, Basset hound, boxer and Pekingese among others. Due to these dogs’ body type and facial structure, they are just not able to efficiently keep their faces above the water and may drown. They can be allowed to play in shallow water but they should always be supervised and should always wear a dog life jacket.
