Water Issues

I have a 10 month old GSD/Border Collie that I adopted almost 3 months ago. When we go to the dog park, she always wants to go to the pond area they have. The first time we went she jumped right in (probably not knowing it was as deep as it was), and came out just as fast. Ever since then, when we go to the park, she will go to the edge of the water and just kind of flirt with the waterline.

When Jasmine takes a bath she just stands there and lets me shampoo her and all of that fun stuff. Is there any way I could get her more interested in swimming, or is all hope lost on that topic? Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Go swimming with her.
Thats how my dogs go in. They always will get thier feet wet but normally wont go past me. So I get in then they try to swim to me.
Bad part is I always end up with a few claw marks on me.
