Hey everyone my parents have a 9 year old cockapoo Barkley she is the sweetest thing ever but she is afraid of water. I was wondering how to train her to like the water I have put her in the water and held her from her bottom to see if she could swim and she instantly swam to he steps I would love for her to just jump or go in he pool freely. And also she has a large allergy problem and bites her paws constantly we have tried everything from vet Meds to nightly primrose oil for the skin but she still seems to bite hard to the point where she stops mid walk to bite any help with that would be great too. Thanks I'm going to try a chamomile tea foot soak maybe that will help south the itch.
