Watson here and I recently had sad news. My friend Nappy drowned in his family’s swimming pool. Nappy was a French Bulldog, and he never went near the water, but it was nighttime and I guess he fell in. He wasn’t able to swim.
I was born
ready to swim, and I love swimming. So, it was a big surprise to me when I
learned that not all dogs can swim. When it comes
to swimming, dogs generally fall into one of three categories: There are those
that can swim, those that can be taught to swim and those that should steer
clear of all water environments.
Water Spaniels, Golden Retrievers, and Irish Setters fall into the first
category, because swimming comes natural to us. We are excellent swimmers, and
we love the water! With our strong legs and rudder-like tails, swimming is a
the other end of the spectrum are the low, sturdy breeds like Bulldogs, Dachshunds
and Boxers. Their short legs can’t create enough thrust to keep them afloat in water.
Dogs who have short faces, such as the pug, have a hard time swimming because
they tire easily. These are the guys that need to stay away from the water.
The Maltese, Chihuahua, and other
small dogs can be excellent swimmers, but they feel the cold and tire easily in
the water. A heated swimming pool would be their delight.
You can teach your dog to swim by
supporting him in the water and allowing him to kick. A life jacket is a good
idea for reluctant swimmers. If you are teaching him in a pool make sure he
knows where to get out of the water. When your pup is comfortable let him
“doggie paddle” around. I’m sure he’ll have a doggone good time.
