15 Dog Breeds That Love To Swim

Written by Alessia

If you are a fish out of water and love to be active in the pool or at the beach, it may be important to you as a dog lover to have ap ooch that also loves to swim. These 15 dog breeds that love to swim are some of the top dogs in the swimming category, genetically having the skills to swim, and they enjoy it. Of course there is no guarantee that the exact dog you have (especially a mix) will love to swim simply because his breed is notorious for it, but it’s a good bet. Not all dogs love to swim, but with one of these pups, you will likely have a swimming pal who doesn’t need to bathing suit shop beforehand.
