Lucky for us here at Table Rock Lake, we have ample opportunities to go for a swim. For hounds, swimming is a great way to get some exercise; it is very easy on the body, especially the joints, while still being a powerful total-body workout. Swimming provides a safe, easy way to allow your dog to strengthen their body while maintaining comfort on their bones and joints. Also, it’s always a good idea to have your hound wear a life vest, especially in deep water and if your hound isn’t the most advanced swimmer. Come on in, the water’s fine!
