    They are so heavy up front you'd really need some buoyancy in the front half. Not so much the back!

    One time baxter ran really fast and stopped hard, and his back legs went flying over the top of him LOL
    It's the "yellow dog floatation vest" from petco.

    im so glad you asked this! I brought Jovi over to her grandma's the other day and she kept saying "I cant wait to open my pool! you're going to have so much fun" and no matter how many times I repeated myself that bulldogs cant swim she just kept talking and talking about it. So I may actually invest in the life jacket myself to see how that goes. Because LAST thing i want is to see my bulldog be taken away by grandma and thrown in the pool oh them mother-in-laws hahahaha

    We took Barkley to a dog park that has a lake last summer and he loves it!! He had never been in/around water before and as soon as we let him in the park and took off his leash he bolted to the lake and ran and jumped off this ledge straight into the deeper water!! I was about to have a heart attack thinking we were going to have to jump in after him but he just popped up and started swimming like a pro!

    We've taken him a couple more times and he still loves going in the water but tries to stay where he can stand (I think he's too lazy to put in the effort of swimming haha). I'll have to figure out if I can post the videos we have of him swimming because they are too cute!!

    Kinda.....so I guess no he cant. If I place him in the pool he can swim around. But if he jumps in he sinks like a stone. So we now have a life jacket.

    They cannot swim, but you can let him by the pool SUPERVISED and with a life jacket. I would never trust that the life jacket would be really able to save Matilda, but at least it'll buy us a few seconds to jump in after her!

    You should get him a kiddie pool! Matilda LOVES the water and likes to wade in (with the jacket of course) at the beach. You could set his pool right next to your pool so that he gets to have some fun too!

    Great idea with the kiddie pool. Will get the life jacket and kiddie pool.

    FYI, I started a new thread to get some info on life jackets. I'm interested in brands and sizing too.
