She loved to play w/ balls and would retrieve tennis balls it seemed like for hours and still enjoyed it. In calm seas she learned to climb our swim platform ladder (w/ very little assistance - just a steadying hand).
We have always had life jackets for our dogs and always use them - primarily for the handle to easily get them out of the water.

Lucky you don't own an Irish Wolf hound!

Huh. Now I'm going to have to inspect all the dogs' paws at the dog park. Although come to think of it I never had any of the dogs on the no-webbing list. That would be very odd, dogs having separated toes like humans. Downright freaky.

Well, it turns out our dogs have webbed feet. We should not have had to wonder, as they are excellent swimmers. One is a Golden doodle, the other is a standard/miniature ( moyen) poodle cross.

Our canine crew, Tut and Pez. We found Tut at a shelter and Pez found us on a bike trail. Their company is worth every hair that is shed!

Zain (the Beach Master) striking another hero pose as he surveys the beach for threats of any kind.

He passed another test today, listening to me instead of chasing an otter that was trying to entice him out to deeper water...have heard stories of otters drowning dogs, so was more than relieved that he came back to my side.

My turn for our Trawler Dog.
Bear is a 3 year old Welsh Terrier and loves cruising. I don't think we have ever left him home. The problem I have is to take him for a potty walk while anchored out. He also like's 55mph on the jet ski.
Somebody should start a Trawler Dog Calendar.
