That's too cute. I hope it helps him!

That must be such a fun job .. to be a tech at a dog rehab place. I can't think of a job that's better than helping dogs while getting to swim with them.

The pool likes familiar :) Phoebe spent many hours swimming in it for her rehab.

Bug doesn't look like he's having much fun swimming, ears back, tongue flicks. Does he like swimming on his own?

Bug has the "she's trying to drown me" look on his face. I don't think he likes that pool a whole lot. Was it noisy?

Bug definitely prefers wading to swimming. I am thinking about doing a seminar this summer that builds confidence in swimming.

No, it wasn't noisy. There was only one other dog there when we were there, a deaf older lab. I think Bug finds swimming high stress at this point. I am hoping that will change!

I thought Corgi's loved the water. Does he groove on lakes and ponds? Whippets are, in general, not big on swimming.

Jules said...

He does love the water, but only for wading at this point. I think the lack of control in the pool stresses him out. If he sees a pond, lake, or creek he makes a bee-line for it!
