Water Exposure




It’s really important to introduce them to water from a young age. Dogs that are introduced positively to water whilst they are young, are more likely to grow up to be really confident around and on the water.

If not exposed to water in a fun way whilst young, your puppy might have a harder time when it comes to going out for a walk or to the toilet when it’s raining.

To build up their confidence you can set up a paddling pool in the garden for them to explore, have fun playing with sprinklers or digging in a bucket full of water.

Start off with only a small amount of water in the bottom, so that their paws only just get wet, and then progress to playing in deeper water too.

This is also a great way to help your puppy keep cool during a hot summer’s day.
