Plan a trip to the waterfalls, streams or the sort where water runs fast. Sure, you will find small pools. Go into the water yourself first. Your dog may not follow you, but he will get right impression. Longer you stay there - more familiar he will become with the situation. Play ball with him, but never force him into water first time, second-third time you may pull him after yourself. I used prone collar (it was the only reason I use it - to cure mild phobias) before for quick training, but it is not necessary if you plan a picnic - your dog finally will follow you into the water. Just ... Isn't it a bit too late? Your dog can get a cold.
