It’s a myth that all dogs are great swimmers! There are some breeds that really struggle, if you think of the likes of pugs, bulldogs, mainly the ones with shorter legs and bulky bodies!


My friends GSPs are all different, as a breed they are known to be great swimmers and even have the slightly webbed feet to make it even easier! However the lady of the pack wouldn’t dream of getting her feet wet! The pup (well 9 months old) is all bluster and ‘can do’ ….. something went wrong for Murphy on his first swimming expedition ….. went head first! Armbands are now definitely off thanks to encouragement from Badger.




We would love to see your wet walk photos and videos – please sent them in to hollie@huntandwilson.co.uk or post directly to our Facebook page.
