On resurrection Sunday our pup Timbre (10week old at the time) got a mellow introduction to swimming. He was a bit apprehensive and to my surprise did not launch in once he swam a bit like our last lab. I anticipate with age he will grow in boldness toward the water!
Don't force him into the water! While watching the video I can see that is the only thing you are doing. Try throwing some toys for him, or just keep calling him. If he doesn't want to get in on his own, it's okay, be patient. But don't force him like that.
This was a gentle introduction and instruction as to where the step was to get out. When you see his tail wagging and he runs back to the pool that means he is happy happy happy! Not our first lab
Love the video. What a cute pup.
