It’s common for many kids to learn how to swim when they’re young. It’s a valuable skill and a fun sport, and you never know when you’ll need to use that ability. Strong swimmers can even make a career out of it, whether it’s becoming an Olympic athlete or becoming a lifeguard.

At any age, it’s important to be safe when hitting the water for the first time. Children and adults alike are given floatation gear or life jackets to help them learn the basics of swimming. As it turns out, animals are no different!

In the clip below, a husky is put in the water with life jacket on. He’s supposed to be learning how to swim, but he has a totally different reaction than what one would expect.

Upon realizing that the life jacket allows him to float without moving, the husky stays perfectly still! He merely floats in the water, drifting from one end to the other.

It looks like quite the relaxing activity anyone would do while on vacation! The people watching this must have laughed out loud when they saw the dog’s reaction.

Does your dog know how to swim? How did you teach your pet how to tread water?

Please SHARE if you would totally react the same way as this husky did when he was thrown into the water!
