They say that dogs instinctively know how to swim. But not every dog knows how to swim well and many dogs don’t even enjoy being in water. Until yesterday, our 5-year-old boy Titan had never been out deeper than his stomach. We never force a dog to swim, that doesn’t go into deep water on his or her own accord, but since we live on the coast we encourage all our dogs to play in and enjoy water as it’s a great way to cool down and to get some exercise too. Yesterday it was really hot and Titan seemed more tempted than usual to get his whole body wet.
Why can’t I walk on water?
What happens if my nose goes under the surface?
We had a nice picnic on the beach and Titan joined us every time we went swimming.
Gemma preferred to only get her belly wet as usual. She is 7 years old in September, but who knows, maybe she’ll try swimming one day too?
The forecast for the next few days is HOT so we’ll be heading for the beach again very soon!
