Love to swim? Many dogs do, too. Why not let your canine buddy join you for a dip? Not only will your dog have fun, but you will both get some exercise. Plus, what better way to cool off when it's hot outside? Some of you may have a pool in the back yard or live near a lake where you and your dog can swim. Many dogs are natural swimmers and will jump right in, others may take a little coaxing but love it once they get the hang of it. These water-based activities let both you and your fur baby work off some steam; so come on in, the water's fine.
Swimming is a great cardiovascular exercise for humans and canines alike. It's the perfect way to keep arthritic dogs - and their owners -active and more flexible. Floating on the water is a good stress reliever for both you and your dog. What could be better than spending a sunny afternoon in the water with your dog - and no one will be happier about it than your fur baby.
