    Dogcrazy, it is quite obvious by your photos that Carmel has a "hard, hard" life... :love:

    Thanks everyone!!! We had a lot of fun!!! Carmel is now pulling to go in to the water!!!:) But when she tries to swim she freaks out and sinks. For the next camping I will get her a life jacket

    You know, with Buddy, who also initially feared the water,
    i spent time first with him in water, with his feet on solid ground in the water,
    and on subsequent trips,
    i had Buddy walk out deep enough his feet no longer touched the bottom, AND BACK AGAIN,
    over
    and
    over,
    so Buddy could begin to learn, "OHhhh, over here, my feet don't touch,
    and over this way, i can find the ground again...ah ha."

    we just went back and forth, rewarding him for not having his feet on the ground,
    and then baaaack to the shallower part again.
    back and forth.

    he got it then, and seemed more sure of himself.

    still, although Buddy happily goes into water now,
    Buddy IS one lousy swimmer:rolleyes: ...other dogs probably point at Buddy and snicker at Buddy's lousy and weirdly slow swimming......:ROFLMAO:
    and yeah, we do put a life jacket on him if he will be in water he can't touch the bottom of.
