What It Takes to be a Dock Diving Dog
🐾 What is the biggest disaster you've had in this journey?
The first time I took both Ash and Alder to Splash Your Pup, an indoor swimming facility for dogs in Ohio, it was a disaster. Alder threw up in the car because his tummy wasn’t used to long car rides. We got there and they were both going crazy and it was difficult to keep them under control together. Alder was really nervous about the pool. He had never been in clear water like that before. We tried to get them to potty before they got in, however the excitement of the situation got their bowels moving and both the boys decided to take a number two directly in the pool. Four hours of driving for barely 15 minutes of fun. Needless to say we have not been back. I have since learned to get the dogs excited beforehand so that they poop before going in the pool. I am also better at gauging their body language so I know when they need to go.
