Before you take your dog swimming...
...know that these breeds don't do well in water:
Pugs. They have such short nasal passages they can experience breathing difficulties and easily drown.
Don’t swim with bulldogs, either. Their bodies are so dense and compact, they can sink.
Next: Dachshunds and Basset Hounds. Their short legs make swimming difficult.
Finally, keep your Maltese out of the pool. They can paddle just fine – but prolonged exposure to wetness and cold can give them arthritis.
