Is this normal?
Seiran completely submerses her entire face when playing in the water in her splash pool, and swims under water in the pool. All the dogs I’ve had have submerged when jumping into water, but did not intentionally submerge after that initial jump. None swam under water.
When she first started doing it, I thought she couldn’t swim so I would pull her out. She would wade back in, and go directly under water and swim for a bit that way, and then swim on the surface, and then dive back underwater for some more swimming.
She will sneeze and cough as soon as she gets out, and then goes right back in, like she’s a duck, instead of a GSD. She also does it in her water bowl too. She wants her face under water.
