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,
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.
