I know this sounds like a dumb question... but do Corgis swim easily?
My dobes need life jackets to keep themselves above water - they're shaped like barracudas, they have very little buoyancy. However, both are realy and willing to go swimming, and both are trained to make beach rescues. They took to it naturally, they'll swim out and "retrieve" someone, then bring them to shore.
I'd like to take Ada to the lake so she can swim with the dobes, but is she capable of swimming? Will she need a life jacket for life, or just during the training stage? My dogs will always wear life jacketswhen they're out boating, but it would be nice to let Ada swim "nekkid" when we go to the beach.
