I can't let this thread go without a Caddyshack reference. "Pool, pond... pond's good for you". I vote for the kiddie pool too. You can put in a really nice pond without spending an arm and a leg, but it's a lot of upkeep and impossible to balance looking good (aquatic plants, fish and everything that comes with that) while being a place for Quincy to frolic. Add in the time or times that he will get into it when you don't want him to and the kiddie pool looks even better. I have one for my two, it cost $20 and I can empty it and hide it so it's perfect.

As far as natural swimmers, it depends on the dog. I've seen GSD's that thought hey were labs, and some that just liked to walk in shallow water. Once weather warms enough for you to go swimming with him he'll get the hang of it.
