have had had 3 labs and none of them hold a candle to my pit when comes to swimming. my pit as swam 4 hours withou stopping and im sure she could have gone even longer. if your thinking about adding wight i would wait till your dog is older. he is not mature enough to build that much muscle. also if you do add wieghts i would put your dog in a walking harness tie a rope to and keep the dog close to shore or if you have a dock right next to it to make sure doesnt drown. i have never tried putting wieght on my dog when she is swimming but i had thought about. your dog is not going to drown infront of you if you do it how i said. so give it a try and let me know how it works. or you could have your dog pull you in a small boat

There is no reason to add anything to a swimming dog. Harnessed or not. Swimming is just fine by itself and when people try to over do things not only do you ruin your dog, but also take the fun out of things for the animal. Let the dogs swim and if you want to do weight training do it properly out of water.

2 of my dogs LOVES to swim, we do it all the time in the summer but my youngest one just doesn't want to do it.
He walks in the water sometimes but doesn't go far enough to swim.

I've tried to walk with him in to the water but it doesn't work either.
He knows how to swim, he jumped in once and was able to swim back but since that he just wont swim again.

I'm hoping that this summer he will want to swim more but if he doesn't want to, I was just wondering if you guys got any tips?

Swimming is an awesome way to work out a dog, and tire them out without having to do much yourself.

Swimming is an excellent conditioning tool that is not only stress free on the joints but also a dogs' pads. I use swimming in my keeps and it teaches my dogs how to pace themselves and breathe with their mouths closed.
