dogswaterMost dogs love the water but there are some that may not think that being in the water is so great. There are generally three categories when it comes to dogs and water.  Dogs that can swim, dogs that need to be taught to swim and dogs that hate being near the water.Water spaniels, golden retrievers, Irish setters, English setters, and the water-loving Newfoundland fall into the first category — all excellent swimmers. This is mainly because of their strong limbs.  The ability to swim can also be in a dogs genes. Many were bred specifically to retrieve waterfowl or for water rescue.

Each of these dogs has a strong tradition of swimming within the breed and generally enjoys being in water. There are many other breeds that love the water and also many mixed enjoy frolicking and splashing in any body of water.
