"The three of them love going in the pool for exercise and we try to do that almost every day. We've trained them that when they have their 'jump 'n swim' collars on they can go in the water, but if we're out at the pool and they don't have their collars, they don't go in the water. This is great because we don't have to worry about them going in swimming if we're not watching.

"Maggie is a total nut when it comes to the water. All she needs is the Jump 'n Swim collar on and for somebody to throw a ball into the pool. She flies off the edge, all four feet spread eagle, and splashes into the water to retrieve the ball. I love to throw TWO balls in and watch her try to get both balls into her mouth, which is just impossible, but you can't tell her that! Sometimes if the ball gets too much water in it, it sinks, but that doesn't deter her as she will even dive down for it!

"Lucas will only jump in from a step at the shallow end of the pool and he will swim out to get the ball and then paddle out once he gets it in his mouth.

"Tyler is just the opposite from the other two. He only goes in using the beach entrance ramp, gently swims around the island in the pool and down to a bench at the deep end where it sits until he's cooled off enough and then gently slips into the water and exits up the ramp to get out. He never gets his head, and only the bottom sides of his ears wet while he's in the water! Tyler is the most lay-back of the three."

Tyler, Lucas and Maggie love to swim. This image of them in the water was captured from a video showing them having fun in the pool. To see the video as a .AVI file, click here.
