Most dogs can swim perfectly and don’t want to get out of the water, but not all of them, some dogs are not able to swim, they can’t make it according to their short limbs, or small nose, but those who have tall limbs are perfect in swimming. This dog is supposed to be a perfect swimmer but what we saw here is completely the opposite, this dog is completely different and weird. He loves water and that is ok, but he doesn’t like to swim!! Lots of dogs were swimming around him, but he didn’t move at all.
It is a good thing from his owner that they are trying to make him swim; I think they have to be patient with him. A lot of people put their dogs into the pool, and they think it’s the right way to make them learn, but it actually isn’t, they have to help their dog and train it, because most owners think that swimming is a natural act. The first mistake they are doing here is that they are put the dog in a crowded place; a place full of dogs which is not a suitable place to learn. It has to be a wide and calm space. Be prepared before teaching your dog how to swim, some toys and treats will be enough. You have to make your dog used to water, and you have to be with him, picking him up with your arms, till you feel it’s possible to leave him. Teaching a dog how to swim is the same if you are teaching a baby.
Dogs are well known for being the best swimmers, they are great and strong. They are intelligent, playful, gentle and strong; really, dogs do bring lots of laughs and adventures to our life.
