This was Sunday’s second time swimming. She’s not loving it yet, but hugely improved from her first time. You can see that her little leg doesn’t want to work as much as her other hind, which isn’t unusual.
By manually moving her leg as I do here her nervous system can be stimulated to get the right muscles working and you can see once that is done she starts kicking a lot more! There also other ways to get that leg moving more, which we’ll cover in future videos.
This is just a small part of the swim as well – Sunday was int he water for about 10 minutes this time, including breaks.
I have to that orange doggie life jacket is not only cute, it also makes her look like a giant goldfish!
