    Riley loves to retrieve. That's what worked for him.

    So a ball or something your pup likes to retrieve in some shallow water (up to the belly or so) and progressing to deeper water might help.

    i haven't had time to clean, patch, and fill up our big pool so sadly he hasn't been in anything deeper then the kiddie pool.
    we taught our chocolate lab to swim by getting in the pool and someone handing us him and we'd hold him until he was comfortable with water then we let him go to see if he could swim.
    this is how i got ruger in the water.

    I know you posted this awhile back, but felt it would be nice to let some more light shine on the pit.
    My grandfather had four of them for hunting coons. All of them slept in the room with him and grandma. I always found comical when at the end of a long day of hunting if he didn't find all of them he would lay down his jacket/shirt and wait till the next morning and the dog would be laying on top of the piece of clothing. Smart smart dogs, but like every other breed depends on how they're raised and when you get them.

    You have a really cute pup though. My wife and I are getting our lab/mastiff back after a year of letting her go. Going to be so nice to have 80Ibs mutt in my arms after she tramples me.
