|Eve, when Kato was a pup, I brought him on vacation with me. The first boat he went on was a paddle boat. Prior to that, he showed zero interest in the water. We were in the paddle boat about 20 ft from shore when Kato just decided he had enough and jumped out of the boat and swam to shore.
I was kind of half expecting something like that, so I stayed where it was shallow for me, so if he panicked or something I could easily reach him. But nope, he swam for the first time by jumping off the boat lol. Swam like a pro too.
I think all dogs know how to swim. It's just some panic when they hit the water, and that's where trouble comes. My other dog Sanka sank like a rock when he fell in our pool, twice. I had never seen such a thing before. Literally frozen in a panic and down he went without a struggle.
