MENUMENU

I like to exercise my canine by throwing a disc to him in the lake at my neighborhood park. Is this a good form of exercise?

Water training can be a great form of low-impact conditioning for canines that love to swim. If your local park authority permits this type of activity, there are a few things you need to keep in mind.

  1. First, make sure that there are no underwater obstructions such as rocks, broken glass, or alligators, etc., that can injure your pet.
  2. Remember to give your canine drinking water from time-to-time, because a dog can become dehydrated even while swimming in fresh water.
  3. Discourage your canine from drinking pond or river water that may contain contaminants such as fertilizer, pesticides, or harmful bacteria.
  4. Finally, be sure to keep your pet focused on the disc and keep him from interfering with waterfowl or other pond residents.
