I'm just bursting with pride...
Taya swam on her own today
I took some Happy Paws treats with me and was encouraging her to swim ie feet not touching the ground lol. I eventually got her 'swimming' and then she really did swim properly!! That was a good note to end on so I gave her a big cuddle and the rest of the treats.
I walked to the other end and there was a nice sized piece of driftwood. Well, she ended up really swimming to get it!! I even held it in front of her and she followed it out to around 10m from the shore. She obviously gained a bit of confidence once she realised she wasn't going to die.
The water was perfect - no waves at all. The poor thing really does want to come out but is just scared of her feet not touching the ground. But hopefully today is the start of her swimming days
I just can't believe it, I'm so proud of my girl
