Doggie paddle do’s and don’ts
Although most dogs love swimming, they are not all experts at the doggie paddle! Swimming can be a great way for your dog to cool off, but constant supervision is required to keep them safe around water.
Keep in mind your dog may not make you aware if they are worn-out so be sure to keep a close watch on them as even an expert swimmer will eventually tire. If your dog isn’t in swimming shape, don’t be afraid to use a life jacket or consider using a kiddies pool, sprinkler or fountain to keep them cool.
