They can be good swimmers, I have heard they are.

Actually, I've read that their body shape makes them sink like rocks so that they will drown quickly if not closely supervised. They need life jackets.

Bulldogs generally have a lot of trouble swimming because their bodies are so heavily built and it's harder for them to breathe because of their pushed in faces. For safety's sake, I would never have a bulldog near a pool or other body of water unless it is wearing a life-vest.

According to Dogs 101 on Animal Planet, They are built like a rock. They are not able to swim because of their large bodies and short stubby legs. Pair that with their pushed in faces, that spells trouble if the dog is not wearing a life jacket.

I amsure they can swim alittle, but they really are not built to do it for long distances. The idea of a life jacket on them would not be a bad idea.
