If Lucy had a say in this post, it wouldn’t be happening. She actually hates water. Being a terrier, she would rather dig in the dirt than dip one paw in the water. Regardless, here are three things that would be great for the water-loving dog.
1. Lifejacket. Lucy has a life jacket she wears when we take her on boat rides. She is less than thrilled with it. (see photo below)
2. Water Toys. West Paw Design’s Hurley toy is great for playing fetch in the water since it’s totally buoyant.
3. Cooling Bandanna. Dip this bandanna from My Outward Hound in water then tie it around your dog’s neck to keep them cool when it’s hot out (and they aren’t swimming). Lucy’s thinking this is a must have since she’s not a fan of those super hot summer days.
We’ll be dusting off her life jacket again this week at the cottage. I know she can’t wait!
