Does your Hav like swimming?

Pickles has really warmed up to splashing in the lake this year. It helps that we've been taking him to an off-leash park with beach access almost every day. Today was a bit of a milestone, as he finally went deep enough to swim a bit (to fetch a stick, of course!).

Just wondering how all your Havs react to water, and how long it took them to start enjoying it. I'd LOVE for Pickles to be a little water dog - we'll see how he is at the end of the summer!

yep Molly loves the water. Luring them in is key. Never force them in the water like my brother did with me. lol
