Welcome to getting wet, fun with your four footed pal, and
if you love a bit of damp work, great titles to earn from a variety of canine groups.
Swimming is wonderful for man's best friend and
can work wonders on the arthritic, and the chubby "need exercise" dog. As well as the outdoorsy soul that is up for a romp
or a quick game of fetch.
BENEFITS OF SWIMMING
♦ Provides non-weight-bearing exercise for dogs with
physical limitations that prevent them from walking or running, including weakness of the limbs due to surgery or injury, arthritis, and other joint-related problems.
♦ Improves range of motion, muscular strength, and cardio-respiratory
♦ Helps promote weight loss for dogs that are
unable to take outdoor walks for the length of time needed to provide adequate weight-loss benefits.
♦ Provides a fun activity for the dog that loves being
in the water and enjoys swimming.
