Labrador Going Scuba Diving Causes Internet Uproar

This video of a labrador going scuba diving has gone viral for very contrasting reasons.

On the one hand, we can’t help but find it outrageously cute.

But on a more serious note, it has initiated a very relevant discussion about the ethical considerations and the overall responsibility of pet ownership.

Critics argue that subjecting a dog to deep-sea diving can be both stressful and dangerous for the animal.


At the end of the day, this doggo doesn’t really have a say in whether it wants to go diving or not.

The debate extends to the broader ethical considerations of using animals for human entertainment.

The Labrador is fitted with both a diving suit and a diving helmet.

The Expedition

While we cannot know for sure, this labrador going scuba diving does look quite enthralled by this unparalleled experience.

Contrary to popular belief, not all dogs possess an innate ability to swim.

Is It True That All Dogs Can Swim?

Factors such as breed, body fat composition, and health conditions can significantly impact a dog’s swimming capabilities..

Dogs, like other non-aquatic mammals, can instinctively hold their breath underwater.

However, the duration dogs can hold their breath is relatively short – on average, not more than between 5 to 10 seconds.
