Havanese and Swimming

The hot weather has arrived in Connecticut. The last time I was at Petco I saw a little wading pool. Of course I would never leave my two little Havs alone at a pool but I was wondering if any of you have any experience with Havanese going in the water. Any input would be appreciated.

Have't tried a wading pool, but Kodi loves shallow water at the edge of the lake. He also LOVES the sprinkler. (though he looks like a drowned rat when he gets done!!! )

Mikey loves the sprinklers too Karen and yea, it's not pretty when he's done running around in them I haven't taken Mikey to any pool or lake yet so I don't know if he'll like it or not.

My first Havenese, Hutch, liked the water as long as I was right there with him AT ALL TIMES. In Missouri I lived by a Big Lake and we'd all go swimming. I did have a life vest on Hutch and never let him get far away. (not that he'd let me anyway It's funny because I had a schnauzer too, at the time, and he would sink like a lead balloon. Couldn't take him. He hated the water and panicked and sunk. Guess he didn't learn to doggy paddle like the rest of the doggies in his class

Mine avoids puddles and thinks I'm the most evil person in the world if it happens to be raining outside. I don't see swimming in his future.

I bought a wading pool last summer and Tim took one look and said "No way Jose!" Oh my goodness that's so cute that Jesse likes to swim, that must wear him out. I might try the sprinkler this year but I'm sure that won't go over too well either.

Kodi has a life vest for when we're boating. But he's not comfortable in the water unless his feet are on the bottom. With that caveat, he does enjoy the water. He'll even lie down in the shallow water on a hot day and just soak!

Oh puddles are fair game... The muddier, the better!
