English Mastiff Is Not a Swimmer

More on PawNation: Dogs, English Mastiff, Funny, Pool, Scaredy Dog, Swimming
Just because some big dogs are brawny doesn't mean they have to be brave all the time. They're allowed to have fears just like little dogs. Take Sampson, the giant English Mastiff, for example. Swimming may be fun for some, but it isn't quite Sampson's cup of tea. Watch him fear for his life in the arms of his owner as they float slowly around the pool. When the owner finally releases Sampson, the dog quickly paddles to the edge for safety. His face just screams, "Get me out!"

Well I've had a Chesapeake Bay Retriever, know as the "ducking dog" and if she smells water she'll knock anything and anyone over as she makes a mad dash into the water. She does a belly flop!!
The main thing for folks to do, is show their dog the steps to get out of the pool. For they can't get out any other way.

Bulldogs are well known sinkers. They swim like rocks, but if you put a kid's life jacket on them, they enjoy the water. They like to wade around, too. The mastiff is very cute, by the way.
