Need to know Otterhound
Originally bred to help fishermen control the otter population, these dogs are superb swimmers. They absolutely love to go for a dip where possible, although their weakness for watersports means you may want to keep a dog towel on hand to prevent them trampling muddy water through your house! It also means they can get a little smelly, however a specialist shampoo or a quick doggy deodorising spritz will leave them super fresh once more.
