What does my dog get out of this?
Fun! Swimming is an optimal form of exercise for puppies, especially large breeds who tend to grow a lot over a short period of time. This non weight bearing exercise allows for zero impact on your puppies growing joints while at the same time strengthening the supporting tissues that surround them. These sessions are a great time for you to bond with your pup over a new mentally and physically stimulating experience. Your puppy will build confidence and trust in a safe fun environment while socializing with other people and puppies and learning how to be a strong swimmer!
