Teaching your Dog to Swim

We found this article interesting and helpful and perfect for the summer season. Guess it captured our attention because it includes the doggy paddle stroke and our company name is Doggy Paddle Products!  It  has some really good information on how different dogs relate to the water. There are sinkers and swimmers. Which is your dog? Can you convert a sinker to a swimmer?  Check it out! here!

Weird, it doesn't mention wrestling to the death to try and get him in the water. We didn't know pugs were built to sink though. Whoops! Maybe a lifejacket in in his future.

Any long dogs with short legs should be watched very carefully around water. The article did not mention dachshunds and they absolutely cannot swim, either. When my mom was a 911 dispatcher, she got a call about a drowned dachshund in a pool. It was a very sad call to receive.
