Swimming Puppy question


Recommended Posts

I have a 14 wk old black lab. He swims well as was properly introduced to water. He does not, however, swim independently. I have to run in the water and he chases me. If I stop, he'll cry and jump up on me (in shallower water of course).

Is this something I can stop? Or, just a puppy anxious about swimming?

I assume once he's bigger and stronger this will stop. Just don't want to prolong the pain if it's something I can stop.

Just here to back up what the gents above have said. I fear too many people expect too much from a young dog sometimes. From the sounds of it he is acting just as he should.

Fear not. Your next problem is going to be keeping him OUT of the water! LOL!!
