Some ways to make it safe for you and your dog to enjoy summertime swimming.
Ease Into It
Just like it takes your some time to train for a long distance run or being able to complete 10 burpees; it can take a dog some time to adjust to swimming. Start slow and keep an eye on your dog’s comfort level. Using a stick or ball to have them wade in shallow water, will help get them used to the feeling. Always good to have water time during the hot summer months, so allowing your pups to take their time making it to the deep end, will make for a safer summer!
Safety for Your Dogs
Some simple guidelines that you follow would be good to pass along to your dogs to follow.
Warm Weather Watch
Dogs love their vitamin D, so they will be in the sun to soak up the rays. Though sometimes they do not know the limit. So watch for extreme panting, constant licking and your dog acting lethargic. Shade and a cold towel can fix an overheating pup, unless the dog has been overheating for too long, then you may need medical assistance.
Dogs love you and love to run, walk, train and be outdoors. As long as you are aware and keep an eye on your best furry friend, they will have the time of their lives!
