How to Teach Your Dog to Love WATER & SWIMMING
Swimming Safety for Dogs
Dogs are natural swimmers, but some take to the water more readily than others. Whether you're on a beach or in a pool, following these pointers will guarantee your pup a blast the next time he takes a dip.
Warm, shallow lake water is ideal for a dog who is new to swimming or uncertain. Build his confidence by tossing a toy into a few inches of water, and reward him with treats. For a puppy, start by easing him into a kiddie pool.
Before he swims, scan the sand for debris like broken glass, and check the waves for pesky jellyfish. Also, feel the water's temperature and limit his swim time accordingly. Thin dogs can lose heat quickly in cold water.
Unlike humans, your four-legged friend doesn't float on the water's surface when he needs a rest. If your dog goes swimming in deep water, he should always wear a well-fitted personal flotation device.
Most dogs are eager to dive in, but if there's no shallow end with graduated stairs, he'll need help getting out, so be ready to lend a hand. After each swim, rinse him with the garden hose to prevent skin irritation from chlorine.
