Glen Loyd Videos: I'm a happy dog at the beach
I see more dogs enjoying a swim in Janesville's Rock River than humans. When it comes to learning how to swim, dogs are a lot like us: afraid, timid, or thriving immediately with the instinct to dog paddle.
If you are swimming with your dogs in questionable waters such as the Wisconsin River, Lake Michigan, and the ocean, be aware of beach warnings about rip currents that sweep you into deeper water.
