Moss makes spectacular leaps into the water from the boat ramp, but he was afraid to go off the dock. He went underwater a couple of times and he was a bit afraid. (He’s fine with bumping Doc off the dock……)
So I got online and read up on the best way to get a dog to jump from a dock. Today I did it it. I got down on my hands and knees (not easy for me) and whooped and hollered (never mind what the neighbors were thinking). I had to block him from running around off the dock to the ramp. But finally he slid into the water. The following water entries got better and better. He’s just doing tiny jumps but he has figured out that if he stretches out, he won’t go under. He’s going to be a super dock dog.
