I cani e l'amore per l'acqua

Dogs and the love of water

Most dogs go crazy for water, but why? Whether it's a fountain, a puddle, the sea or a river, dogs seem really attracted to it, woe betide them to stop them from taking a nice dip. How can we blame him, especially now that the sunny days are starting.

There are dog breeds defined as "aquatic", such as the American Water Spaniel and the Irish Water Spaniel which love water so much that they even have it in their name.

Few dog breeds are unsuitable for swimming, such as Bulldogs, but for a structural reason: due to their wide chest and short legs, they struggle to swim, but that doesn't mean they can't have fun in the water! In general, dogs love rivers, lakes, the sea and swimming pools for exactly the same reason as humans: because it is extremely fun and refreshing.

Swimming is a perfect exercise for our four-legged friends, because it strengthens the heart and lungs by stimulating the entire muscles without being tiring on the hip and shoulder joints.

Remember, if we are in a public place it is always advisable to stay next to them and not take them away, thus ensuring that we keep our dog under control and do not bother other people.
