KrisK Posted July 16, 2006 Report Share Posted July 16, 2006 Yesterday, we finally found a decent place to take the dogs swimming. Jazz has been swimming since at our summer place since he was about two years old. Cricket, now three, has never been swimming. She's waded around in the water but I've never allowed her to swim at our summer place because it's a boulder beach, no sand, and with her hip surgery, I wouldn't take a chance. Anyway, yesterday we took them swimming. I put a life vest on Cricket but it wasn't necessary. After the first dive into the water, it was evident, she's a natural! It has been in the low 30's here all week so the dogs haven't been getting much exercise. I tossed balls for both dogs for maybe 10 minutes. They were swimming about 25-30 metres max at a time. Being typical BC's...they both wanted more, but I stopped. They were definitely tired and it was still hot. So my question - How long do you swim your dogs? Since this isn't a typical beach area, we really can't 'hang around' very long. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
