    Default Can anyone's bully swim?

    Now that summer is approaching, the pool will open. I have read that bulldogs can't swim. Last summer I didn't let Meatball in our pool area. The pool has a second fence around it because I have toddlers, and we separated the pool and yard with a extra fence. However, last summer he would cry, it looked like he wanted to come in the pool area and swim/play with the kids. So, does anyone's bully swim? Or is it true they can't swim?

    If he can't swim I have seen videos on YouTube with bulldogs with swim vests on might be a good investment.

    Blue loves the water so we just got him a life jacket. He can spend hours in it if we let him.
    Does he swim? Kinda..lol.. We're always near by just in case though.

    I think a life jacket is your best bet.

    We put a life jacket on Dually as well. He's not really a swimmer but he does like the water especially if there is water balloons involved!! haha

    We have a pool too, I have a 5 ft. baby gate around the whole pool. One day I let Vegas in the gate with me while I was in the pool and he jumped in the deep end He sank like a rock!!!! Scared the crap out of me and him both. Now I will let him out for a little bit when we are in the pool and he just stands on the top step and enjoys watching us.

    I've heard they can't swim, because of their weight and shape, they sink, but many people do use a dog live jacket around the water. I would get him one, and stay right beside him and see if he likes the water, and how he does. Just like toddlers they have to be supervised around pools and bodies of water. I don't know if my guys can swim as I have never tried it out, and they don't seem to really like water.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    @Blueberrys Mom where did you get that life jacket? I like it.

    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
