Hi all! Phoebe is 11 months old and a great swimmer. The problem is whenever someone is swimming, she jumps either on them or attacks them, scratching them and biting at the splashes she creates. She won't swim back to the shore and continues to swim 'on' the person, which forces the person to have to swim back to the shore with Phoebe continuing to attack them. It is not enjoyable at all. When we hold her back (put her on a leash to ensure she doesn't jump into the water with the person swimming), she goes insane - barking and howling, crying, and pulling like crazy to get into the water. I have read other posts where the V. may be trying to 'retrieve' the human and have tried some of the suggestions to no avail. I've tried to calmly go into the water from the shore (not allowing her to jump from the dock) and I've tried to distract her with treats and toys. The human in the water is way more of a draw than any treat or toy (in fact, she's not interested in retrieving toys at all). Is this something she will grow out of as she matures? Any other suggestions for getting her to calm down? I don't mind her swimming with us if she was calm and not swimming ON us and scratching and biting. Thanks in advance!!
