BENEFITS OF SWIMMING
Low Impact Exercise
Swimming is one of the best, life long, physical activities for your dog. The low impact nature of swimming is great for increasing muscle tone, relaxing sore joints and muscles and releasing energy.
The resistance of the water causes your dog to work harder than they would if they were just out for a walk. Stronger muscles means less chance of injury during normal exercise such as running or playing fetch or while participating in dog sports such as agility or flyball.
Swimming in a heated pool means that it won't take as long for the muscles to warm up thereby helping relaxation and assists blood flow. It can also reduce muscle spasms and improve the dogs range of motion.
