Can Chihuahuas swim?

This is a question that I have been asked many times. My answer to this question is yes, they can swim. There are some people who would disagree with me and say that because of their size, chihuahuas cannot swim.

In fact, there are even services out there designed especially for small dogs so that they don’t drown in the water! The Chihuahuas are one of the few breeds that have a history of being used in water.

They were often given to children so they could help them with the daily chores like fetching food from fishing boats or retrieving games while hunting. As such, these dogs quickly developed an affinity for swimming.

Nowadays chihuahuas may not be called upon as much to retrieve items but it is always best to keep your dog safe and never leave him unattended near any body of water just in case he needs assistance!
