Washington DC has some capital swimming for dogs of all types! From aqua rehab to seaside beaches, the DC metro area is a haven for dog owners who like to take their pups for a swim.
Swimming is a great exercise that delivers a lot of benefits for seemingly little effort. The cardio is great for your dog’s heart and lungs, while the resistance of the water helps develop muscular strength. And if your pet is elderly or has mobility issues, the buoyancy of the water makes swimming easy on the joints.
