Swimming is a fun and low-impact kind of exercise that many people take their dogs to perform because it is one of the most popular water activities for dogs.

 Even though many dogs have a natural ability to swim, it is essential to keep constant watch over them and to make sure they have access to a life jacket in case they capsize.


Dock jumping

Dock diving—dogs jumping off a dock into water—is a competitive sport.  Jumping and retrieving toys is fun for dogs and a fantastic way to exercise and bond.

Paddleboarding with your dog is a wonderful method for you and your dog to explore bodies of water together.  Many dogs enjoy riding on the board's front and feeling the breeze on their fur.



Kayaking is another excellent water activity for dogs. Inflatable seats and leash attachments are common in pet-friendly kayaks.  Your dog's size and weight should determine the kayak you choose.


Surfing with your dog can be exciting and unique, but be sure they're comfortable in the water and can swim.  Your dog needs a life jacket and proper surf conditions.



Canoeing with your dog can be a relaxing way to enjoy the water and nature together.  Many canoes are designed to accommodate pets, with features such as adjustable seats and non-slip surfaces.


Rafting with your dog can be a thrilling and adventurous water activity.  It's important to choose a raft that is appropriate for your dog's size and weight, and to provide them with a life jacket and leash.



Water fetch is a basic yet enjoyable water game for most dogs.  You only need a floating toy and a body of water to get started! It's an excellent method to exercise your dog while also keeping them cool on hot days.

Water fetch

While snorkeling is not a common water activity for dogs, some dogs enjoy it with their owners.  It is critical to ensure that your dog is comfortable wearing a life jacket and is capable of handling the water conditions.
