| My question, bearing in mind that our dog didn't enjoy swimming until he was 2yrs. old, is:- is there an age at which Border Collies start to enjoy swimming?|
The same impossible question could be posed for humans and any activity in dogs or humans. Nope, there is no age that they "start" - it is individual to each dog, though pups generally show an aversion or attraction to water quite early on.
And, you CAN teach an old dog new tricks. It's never too late to start swimming - and that goes for humans too.
