Swimming is a fantastic way for your dog to exercise. Using so many muscles in a weightless environment. Perfect for older dogs and those with mobility trouble.
Got a high energy dog that needs more than a walk or fetch? Swimming can help tire that energizer bunny!
Swimming has been essential in our dog’s development, and it has helped him become a more healthy, socialized, and athletic pup. He began dipping his toes in the pool at 4 months old with a lifejacket on, and after a few visits we could not get him out! He was doing laps by the third visit. After introducing our dog, Bode, to the water, he gravitates to it anytime we are out and about. Our experience has been nothing short of phenomenal and we cannot thank Laurel and her team enough for introducing our swimming pup to the pool! Katie S.
My Lab couldn't swim! He'd go down like the Titanic! After a few sessions with a doggy life vest and lots of praise and encouragement, now he lives to swim! I can wear him out, and since he's an older guy with some arthritis it's the best way for me to do it.
Our rescue dog Abbey suffers from extreme anxiety. Thunder; a car backfiring; rain and wind will send her to a closet to hide and shake. We tried everything from thunder shirts to anxiety medicine but nothing seemed to work until I met Laurel Rose. I scheduled swim lessons for Abbey. A 30 minute lesson relaxed her so that she would come home and sleep soundly. After a month of lessons, I found that Abbey began enjoying her morning and afternoon walks. The swimming seemed to help her. I would highly recommend swimming lessons for any dog who suffers from anxiety.
