That is a great looking dog.  8) Aussie shepherds and heelers are super smart and love to play.  My first heeler loved to chase a bucket lid just like a frisbee.  My brother once wondered what would happen if he threw the lid into the pond, thinking the lid would float. ::)  It sank, and Blue dived after it.  He was gone long enough my brother feared he had drowned my dog.  He finally surfaced, lid in mouth, blowing water high in the air.   :o  The pond was off limits after that.

Depends on how your doggy was treated around water. Some people will frighten the dog when he's young by picking him up and tossing him in and he'll stay away from water when your around. But, if he goes in on his own he'll be swimming like a frog. :)

Can she get out on her own?   I'm afraid to start my pup in the pool for fear she'll get confident and then will jump in when we're not around, not able to get out. 
I used to think I could fix DanG near anything...now I know I can...or I think I can...or maybe I can?

Yeah, I'de want to be around if the dog jumped in. If there is steps (not a ladder) she may be able to figure it out. Once she did, she would remember the way afterward.

nope she cant, but our dogs dont roam outside by thier selves. They go out with us.  Actully we are trying to come up with a solution for her getting out simply so se doesnt need to be lifted out.  She seems to have no urge to get in there unless we are in there at the moment.

My daughter's dog Oliver can't stand to be on the sidelines if anyone is in the pool.
He doesn't necessarily want to be in the pool just closer to the action.  Before the float, he would just run around wearing off his pads on the concrete.
Here he is stressing out over my daughter being in the pool.

Also in my defense, that raft has a mesh center so you lay in the water and not on the raft. Only the oustide edge and pillow and occupant are full of air.

I don't know how you can stand it this early in the year.  Last I heard the ambient temperature was just in the 90's.  Y'all are going to freeze your tookus off.

If nothing else, I would leave some floating devices in the pool in the hopes that a dog might be able to hold onto one till you get home.  Drowned pets is a common occurance down here.  It's even unnerving for wild animals to get stranded in a pool.  It happens a lot to squirrels.

For duck hunting I would have a carpeted wood ramp hanging off the side of the boat , shoot a duck and dog jumps out over the other side and swimming back to boat dog would come back to the opposite side of ramp and try and climb up .Never would come near the ramp.  Never seen anything so helpless as a tired wet dog trying to be pulled in over the edge of a boat . 

I like the chair ramp you made and it is a definate dog saver .

I think you might have a circus dog , very smart !

Well, it looks like we got us a pretty good Frisbee dog!

Here's a short video clip. about 1 meg so not to awful long for slow connections.  Ice has turned out to be a great addition to the family. She's still just a pup and still learning but she is a sweetheart. Her one fault is inbred within her. She is very very protective of the family. So much she barks as visitors longer then appropriatte. We have started to take her more with us when we go out to get her used to more human contact, but she still has a real issue with male visitors to the house.
