OwyheeStar’s Henri

~Her First Swim

Henri at the Idaho Veterinary Hospital for her Titer Test

Cliff has had her to the pond a couple of times–and retrieved in chest-deep water before. The key to the quick success was her love of the retrieve. This water work is one of the many benefits of having your Weim crazy for the retrieve.

Please note that there was a couple of bumpers left from a trip out with another Weimaraner earlier–and Cliff tossed a rock to try to get Henri to retrieve the additional bumper. Hurrah–for-Henri she did several water-retrieves, and there was no hesitation at entering the water. And, she picked up that extra bumper too!

The Weimaraner is water friendly despite the fact that some Weim parents cannot seem to get theirs in the water. Yesterday, on the blog (Swimming OwyheeStars ), Cliff shared some pointers on achieving the water retrieve.

There have been others who have interacted, and ridden on the SUP. Please check out these links:

Dock Diving and Sailboats

There are other (than the SUP) OwyheeStar water pastimes. Most water Weims are swimmers, or water retrievers; however, there are those that dock dive. Click here and see and Idaho pair of dock diving Weimaraners. Sunny grew up on a sailboat. He still spends time on charters to the delight of some who sail choose to sail with Rod.
