I read the other recent post about teaching your dog to swim and had a few more questions pertaining to my two dogs. I'll be moving to my new house soon and it has a pool. I have two chihuahuas that are indoor only, but I want to be sure that if they fall in unexpectedly or get out somehow they wouldn't drown. I've seen vests at the store and will purchase two before moving, but do you have any suggestions on how to ease them into it? One is very outgoing, but not too hot on new things. I think she'll do fine if I'm in with her. The other was abused and hates new situations and is afraid of everything. How should I go about teaching them?
