Last weekend we took Baxter to learn how to swim. At first he wasn't that interested in getting wet. He would wade into the water to get a ball, but not past his chest. After a few other dogs joined us in the pond area he got the guts up to go deep enough where he needed to swim. After another ten minutes he was jumping into the water. Here is a series of images I pasted together showing how he gets into the water to retrieve a toy.
