Quick question: What are ya'lls thoughts on taking a 2 month old puppy to the river? It's a mastiff/pit mix so he is big lil guy but I was wondering more because of age. Anything i need to be aware of?

Thanks for the help :)

i would highly recommend making sure that the current is not very strong...they can get swept down-river quite easily and not be able to get to shore....check under currents, as well....

If the river is shallow and slow, a leash (long training leash would be best) would suffice. Just DON'T TURN YOUR BACK! last fall I took my dogs to the river and Callie was swept downstream (that part was narrow and swift). I had to swim after her!
