At the beach with Koda Bear!
Akita's are snow dogs and relish the cold weather, but they don't really enjoy the water that much. Most of my Akita's love to play and dig in the sand but keep a very far distance away from the waves.
This was Koda's first beach excursion and I was very happy when he hopped right in after his friend! After a little while, he was splashing about, running around and even wanted to go back in once we got out!
If you introduce your pooch slowly to the water and they are allowed to go in at their own pace then I find you have a much better chance of them enjoying the water. Plus if they see all their dog friends having fun, then they naturally want to go in after them!
All in all, a successful and fun adventure!
All the love, from my pack to yours
