    also if you have dog/s an a swimming pool its best to teach your dog/s where the ends are to get out as some dogs have been known to paddle endlessly at the border/edge of the pool an get tired an drown cuz they didnt know how to get out of the pool
    Never thought of that lst part, but that's interesting to learn.

    Definitely find a teacher and learn to swim, it's so worth it!

    i didnt either until i seen videos of dogs an in pools an a lot of the time they head right for the edge/border thing of the pool an some dogs dont have the strength to pull themselves out. especially smaller dogs
