Madeleine thanks for your photo of Oliver swimming. Oliver who is Smudges brother & Millie is their Mum. Madeleine took Oliver to this session in the pool after being offered it at her puppy training classes & took them up on it when she noticed at the beach that Oliver seemed a little frightened of the water.
Another way to encourage a dog into water is to get in yourself or find someone with a dog that your dog enjoys the company of & that dog also loves water as normally when one goes in showing what fun it is the one not so sure most often soon follows.
Nice to know that this sort of thing is out there if your dog is not to sure of water & hopefully it helps. Madeleine is going to let me know if it helps Oliver. Always fun to hear from Madeleine & to know what Oliver & Madleine have been up to. Oliver certainly does not lack having an interesting life & Madeleine has gained I know a very valued little friend in Oliver. Looking forward to the next Madeleine & Oliver adventure. Always a pleasure Madeleine.
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
