    We went to the newly opened dog-swim :-)
    Alf didnt know how to do it and didnt have the right tecnique.
    Theo was a natural! He just went for it. Look at him go!

    Since Alf didnt use his muscles right we will have him swimming so he gets better. The instructor said that they can see emediatley if a dog has backpains, so it feels safe to have him swimming and building muscels.

    Do your dog swim?

    That is awesome. I wish we had dog-swim facilities, but I haven't found one in my area. Remi loves to swim but we only get to do it when we visit family . It's one of his favorite activities but sadly not something he can do as often as we'd like. :)

    Missy likes to swim. But she barley ever gets to because I can usually only talk my mom into taking me to a dog beach at the lake once a year. Sometimes I'm able to find parts of my creek that are deep enough for her to swim in. This summer while my parents aren't home I'm going to bring her in the pool.:sneaky: Chase also loves to swim, he hasn't been swimming in 6 years?, but this summer I'm going to take him to the lake.

    There is a dog swim about an hour and a half south of us :)

    We live in cottage country on Georgian Bay so my guys go swimming all the time as soon as it's warm enough.

    Holly "swims" in the creek at the dog park. It isn't actually deep enough in most places for her feet to leave the ground and she wont jump into the deep bit yet where all the retrievers/labs etc go. She is getting more confident in the water:

    Cool video!!:)Shivon doesn't get to swim much. She went swimming almost every day at the cottage last year, and at the dog beach (but it's not fenced in so I can't take her there unless she's on a leash) I wish there was a facility like that close to here... the nearest one is 2 hours away.:( Plus Lake Ontaio isn't exactly the cleanest lake out there...:sick:

    I wish Deja would swim. She does not like the water though. She steps in it and that is. Wussy. LOL
