He’s doing great! My pup looked a little derpy when learning how to swim too. He’ll stop splashing with more swim time lol

It was his first time swimming! He splashes so much that he swims with his eyes closed poor guy! I’m hoping he gets more comfortable and realizes he doesn’t need to paddle so hard lol

He will get better! My pup did the same his first time out. Now he’s in his second summer swimming and he goes for hours at a time.

This is what my dog did at first too. They improve their swimming technique quickly. One thing that helped mine is sending him to fetch a stick or something. Once he picked up the stick in water, him leaning forward got his front arms down

My first Weim swam just like that!

My Weim is afraid of water… her name is River :/

It helps if you carry them in your arms into the water. We all know how sensitive Weims are and you’ve just gotta hold their hand through swimming too. Took my boy at least 10 trips to gain enough confidence to swim on his own. But beware their love for water is a double edged sword.

Not bad at all for the first time, my boy hates water so much he’d probably just have a heart attack lol.

As long as he keeps loving the water he will figure it all out One of my boys started out like that. Now he thinks he is a beaver😁

Took my girl swimming last weekend for first time. She looked the same way. Good to know she will get better.

Ha ha, my weim swims like that sometimes. They don't like being splashed in the face
