    Photographer Seth Casteel has taught over 1,500 pups to doggy paddle.

    To raise awareness about the thousands of pets drowned in backyard swimming pools in the United States each year, Seth Casteel published Underwater Puppies, the sequel to Underwater Dogs. It features 72 swimming puppies aged from six weeks to six months.

    If you are a pool owner or your dog has access to a pool, please consider all precautions including limiting access to the pool, alarms, proper pool exits and most importantly, teaching your pet how to get out of the pool in case they choose to go in, or accidentally fall in.
