    Looks like they are having fun. I don't know about you but I'd rather have them swimming than doing what my dog does. Every time we jump in she tries to save us which means if you're not careful you'll end up with some nice scratches on your body......

    We have 5 and the other 3 don't care much for it. One is an older golden and he kinda fell in once and just stood on the bottom looking surprised before I scooped him up.

    The darker golden in the .gif above swims circles around us and tries to take anything we are holding onto or playing with. Now he has learned how to get onto our foam loungers and is causing a bit of damage.....not the best thing in the world but not that big of a deal either. They are happy which makes us happy.

    They learned to use the steps and swim out bench early on.
