Tira has always liked water; swimming, splasing, playing, laying, etc.
Gunner swam in a pond with his mom/dad/siblings before we got him but since then it's just been bath water cause there is no place around here to let a dog swim.
I fill it up enough that the end is deep enough to swim in without touching and one end is shallow enough for them to barely touch.
I love watching them swim and play. A few of them were already retrieving in the water. It was very cute! Good way to give them a head start on what they will face in thier life. This way nothing is a suprise or out of the norm

Those pics are so adorable .

I had Zoe at the water again today. . It is almost like she is trying to practice today . She stepped out a little farther then went in a circle and back to where she can put her feet down.

I think she will be a good swimmer in time.Loves to pic up a stick tossed in the water and carry it all the way home

She'll get it! I also found it was useful to toss treats (that will float) into the water at ever increasing intervals. They get so engrossed in getting the food they forget that they can't touch the bottom anymore.

LOL MOm that picture is just TOO cute!!

Here is Jada and I's first time in the water at the cottage


This is how we introduced her into the water


Riot got introduced into the water by me throwing sticks in - hes stick obsessed. He'd go in and bring them back. Eventually they got deeper and deeper until he was swimming. First time he swam he got a huge round of applause and praise.. he loved it.
