Howie’s Diving to the Bottom of the Pool!

One of our Boston Terriers is a huge swimmer. Howie loves to dive down to the bottom of the pool and fetch his frisbee! Check out these pictures and videos of our diving dog!Boston Terrier DIVES to the bottom of the pool!

Dog Diving to The Bottom of The Pool

Miley and Howie are OBSESSED with swimming!! :) We cannot keep them out of the pool in the summer! They love jumping off the diving board, and sometimes they can even catch the frisbee in mid air.

Here’s a video of them last summer jumping off the diving board.

And here’s what Howie learned how to do over the weekend!

We noticed that when jumping off the diving board after his frisbee, he’d sometimes land on top of it, sinking it down a few inches. When it didn’t see it floating on the surface, he’d dive down in the water searching for it and come back up with the frisbee in his mouth.

We’d seen lots of videos on YouTube of diving Boston Terriers (even one going 7 feet deep!), and wanted to see if Howie would do it too. We practiced on the steps, gradually lowering the frisbee an inch or two at a time. In no time at all he was going lower than we could hold it, even all the way down to the bottom of the pool.

Here’s the video if you want to watch. There’s even a slow-mo replay of Howie’s wiggling little booty underwater!

We used this Nikon COOLPIX Waterproof Camera to make this video. (Not sponsored!) It takes great underwater photos and videos, and I can even send photos from the camera to my iPhone without the need for a WiFi connection using the free Nikon Wireless Mobile Utility iPhone app.

    OMG! This is too cute! I showed this post to my kids and they LOVED it as much as I did, if not more. My 3 year old asked to watch the video 3 times and giggled every time.

    LOVE your your blog! OMG!! Wonder Dogs, I swear!!! They are awesome! I love the underwater video. You mentioned that can send photos from the camera to your iPhone without the need for a WiFi connection using the free Nikon Wireless Mobile Utility iPhone app. I have an older Panasonic Lumix that I use when traveling and I love it. Is there a camera equivalent to the Lumix that can do what your Nikon COOLPIX can do? I am not a up to date w cameras and you seem so camera savvy. I like taking close ups, couple selfies, and food pics. If I can download camera photos to my iphone or even straight to my computer would be so awesome. (I seriously don’t know anything about what’s currently out there). Any suggestions so I can start my research somewhere will really help. Thank you!
