Kodi CAn swim, but doesn't really like it. We made sure he could swim and find the steps to get out of the pool to make him more "pool safe".
We started by holding him in chest-deep water, letting him start dog paddling, and then calling him back and forth between DH and me. We started with very short distances (where one of us could reach him at all times) and built to the point that he could swim the width of our round pool.
He LOVES paddling around in shallow water at the beach, but is much happier when his feet can touch the bottom.
