Furry Four Legged Children Who Benefit from Swimming Pools

Not every dog loves to swim, but if introduced properly they will love it!  It’s not only fun for them it’s also the best exercise.  Did you know that a 5 minute swim is = to a 5 mile run?  Yes, it’s true!  It can be difficult to exercise on land because of over stressing their joints and bones.  The resistance of water makes the dog work harder, he will strengthen and tone.  A dog that is recovering from surgery, old or overweight swimming will help with the recovery and not cause more damage or stress.  With a heated pool the benefits are greater of helping the blood flow and make them more comfortable. To see your furry four legged children enjoying the water and joining in the family fun is the greatest feeling!
