You can easily judge the character of a person by how they treat those who can do nothing for them

Ah, you're new to V's! There's little doubt he feels insulted by the "Kiddie pool".....

At 8 weeks he's new to the world, so swimming might be a bit too much just yet, maybe next year. You can try to take him in the real water...like a proper lake or pond!....in your arms so he feels safe and gets the hang of it.

Haha - never thought of that!


We have a pond across the street and a proper dive dock not far away. The water will get cold soon, so I want to get him interested now while I can, although he may not get a proper swim this season. I sit in the pool and put him in with me and pet him for just a bit and play with a toy, then lift him out. Each time he seems to like it a bit better.



They are such fun pups!

they are fun pups and adults :-). i would be careful with cold water unless the pup is confident and wants to go in by himself. it can cause a bad experience which will be hard to overcome later. by any chance u have a facility which offers swim with your dog possibility? those usually are great places to start young pups too.
