Dogs That Are Poor Swimmers

Due to their flat features, these little wrinkled puppies sometimes have problems breathing. These issues are increased in deep water.

2. Corgis

They aren't great swimmers. They can learn to swim, but their huge bodies, barrel-shaped chests, and lengthy legs make them unnatural swimmers.

3. Dachshunds

Dachshunds, like corgis, have long bodies and short legs, making swimming difficult.


They won't have breathing problems in the water, but their short legs will make paddling difficult.

4. Boxers

Boxers' long legs and athletic bodies deceive. They can swim, but too much time in the water might cause breathing issues.

5. Shih Tzus

Shih Tzus struggle to stay afloat due to their short muzzles and small legs. Their thick coat might grow damp and weigh them down.

6. Basset hound

Although bassets were developed for hunting. Their big bodies, huge heads, and small legs don't suit swimming.

7. Maltese
