The dog days of summer are in full swing, and these days of stifling heat mean lots of preparation just to stay cool. As most of us know, the easiest way to cool down on a searing hot day is to jump into the pool and splash around in the water with your best friends.

Actually, it doesn't even need to be a pool, because the sea, or even a local lake is always an option when you're looking for a little leisure time and a fun filled day. And just like humans, animals can be huge fans of the water too!

Don't believe me? Well then, just take a look at the video below. In it, dogs are enjoying their pools in the same way that any human being would! They sure do show their love for water on these hot summer days.

For whatever reason, jumping into the water and splashing around seems a lot more fun for dogs when they are the ones choosing to get wet, unlike bath time, when they aren't in control of the situation. We can only guess why this is. But it's very obvious that the pups in this video LOVE to go swimming!

Take a look at this adorable compilation of dogs enjoying a dip in the pool. Their excitement and joy make it fun to watch and you'll find yourself wanting to jump right in with them.
