Sailor the Mastiff may be big and strong but when it comes to swimming she turns into a big scaredycat. Spending the summer panting and overheating just because she’s afraid of a little bit of water is not the best way to deal with heat so her family decided to give her swimming lessons.
Big doggy life vest? Check. Dog friendly pool? Check. Loving and patient instructor? Double check. You can tell Sailor was keen to learn to swim, but it just took her some gentle persuasion and her dad’s support. That’s a brave girl.
