Teaching Dogs to Swim

Safety First

Invest in a canine life vest. Ensure safety during early swim sessions.

Shallow Encounters

Guide your dog into shallow water. Allow them to explore and get comfortable

Positive Reinforcement

Praise and treats for every step into the water. Build trust and confidence.

Buoyancy Assistance

Support your dog under their belly. Help them feel buoyant and secure.

Playful Interaction

Engage in games near the water's edge. Make the experience fun and enjoyable.

Gradual Progression

Slowly move into deeper water. Stay close and provide constant reassurance.

Happy Swimming

Celebrate milestones. Once confident, your dog will happily swim on their own.
