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