Thread: Daily poll: Can your bully swim?

    We have a pound in front of our house and when we aren't looking Tank tries to "sneak" down to the pond for a swim.. I must say I'm quite impressed with how well he swims but I never let him swim enough to go very deep and always yell at him to get out.
    This is our big boy Tank.

    Mine hates water in general, so I'll probably never know.

    Elmo doesn't like water, he will not even get into his baby pool, I have not tried the sprinkler, but I will since it is so hot here.

    Gus loves water -- he even enjoys taking baths! (I know, strange...) We take him to the local riverbank and he loves to play fetch in the water. But we always have him on a leash, and just recently found a life vest for him. I don't know if this link will work, but here is one of the times we took him swimming --

    Taffy looks fairly apprehensive and supposedly at his daycare when they have paddling pools he won't venture in. We live on the Thames with the river at the bottom of the garden and so we've taken some precaution to ensure he doesn't wonder out alone. We also live near a lake he could gently paddle in to and I've seem him play with another dog that went bolting into the water and he stopped chasing.

    I think best to test it in a safe surrounding!

    I voted yes cos 2 out of 3 can swim... Boeboe and Bennie can swim but they hate it, Joey on the other hand LOVES to swim but she can't. We used to have a pool where we lived before so Joey and I sometimes swam there, I had to hold her otherwise she'd tip over, lol.

    My girls are desert girls; they only thing they know if a good sofa, air-conditioning and snorkeling in their food bowls. They have never been near a body of water other than the Kio pond. They have fallen in the pond but I have planks across it just to make sure and they were able to jump out of it. I suspect no and would definitely invest in life jackets for them should the need arise.......in the meantime we keep the AC on high.

    My bully bruiser loves the water and loves to go to the lake. But he sinks like a stone if he goes out to far. Thank god he was still attached to the leash. Want to get him a life vest. He is not built for swimming on his own.

    If I threw a 60 lb rock in my pool it would have a better chance of coming to the surface than chum would..

    Both of ours can swim. We put them in the middle of the pool one at a time. We have to keep our hands under their chest and they head towards the steps. And the final three feet they swim. But that's about it. We are waiting for them to mature in size, get them the life jackets and then hopefully they can swim. And being overly protective I will still watch them like a hawk.
