Let's Go Swimming
When the weather here in Northern Utah is agreeable for swimming we try to take Roma 1-2 times per week. She is quite fond of water retrieving. These sessions are good times for us to practice some obedience commands such as, 'retrieve,' 'come,' and 'drop.'
I love that swimming is non-impact exercise for Roma. I figure any non-impact exercise she gets helps to protect her joints from any degeneration that might occur as she ages. Swimming is also great at developing muscles, especially in the rear that are hard to work otherwise. In addition, swimming burns a lot of calories so it is remarkable for weight-loss in heavy dogs that land exercise is difficult for.
