Splish, Splash - And Be Safe
Whether the body of water is an ocean, lake or pool, water
therapy is a good aerobic exercise for dogs. In fact, water's natural buoyancy
can be far kinder on dogs than long walks on concrete sidewalks or arduous
hikes on rocky terrain.
Marty Becker, DVM
, known as "America's Family Vet," shares these
six safety tips for your water-loving dog:
Avoid rivers with strong currents or keep your
dog on a long line.
Avoid water that is stagnant or that has algae

Give your dog time to play around in shallow
areas and bring floatable toys and treats that float.
- End the water workout before your dog becomes

sleeves from daily newspaper deliveries as poop pickup bags.
yoga at home can be challenging, especially when you are trying to hold a
"downward facing dog" pose and your canine pal takes that opportunity to
deliver sloppy kisses to your face - right, Chipper?
