    Default Can Bulldogs Swim? Ours Can

    Attachment 87444Attachment 87446Attachment 87447

    They only need a little help. Life jackets. I just Knew last year as puppies this year I would make swimmers out of them. Nope, I was wrong. The front paws work great their back paws are like they are dragging two little spoons. We are happy this year they know to go to the steps to get out. Even with the life jackets I still do not trust them back there without someone watching. I have seen the YouTube videos of Bullies swimming but just not at our house. Emmitt only weighs 51 pounds and Rogan 57 pounds. Without the jackets Not a Chance.....

    That's awesome! I wouldn't trust them by themselves either..

    We get to try Harley at the lake this summer! I'm very anxious.. She has no problem with water, just her life jacket, she hates!

    Taco flails his back legs, so it drags him into a pencil position, and he bobs. He's good for about 5 seconds till he realizes he's swimming. He loves the water though, just like your pups! Same life jackets also!

    That's so cute Joey LOVES to swim but she tips over and sinks like a rock, so the times we've been swimming with her we have to hold a hand under her belly to keep her from tipping over, lol. I've never tried a life jacket on her though, it looks like it works really well

    Boeboe and Bennie can swim, even without a life jacket but they hate it
