Afterwards, we took a walk to another part of the park where there is a relatively flat and straight stretch of gravelly beach, and did water sprints. Basically, we ran up river in knee deep water, then moved to waist deep water and ran downstream back to our starting point. Koira absolutely loved it, and thought running in the water upstream was awesome (but that maybe I should throw her toy for her) and that swimming back downstream was great too.

I've found that, as long as you pick the right activity for the right dog, your dog is a great companion for your human workouts.
Pallo stayed at home during this trip. He doesn't approve of hanging out in water. He'll go in to fetch a toy, but he wants to head straight back to shore afterwards, and people in the water don't count as fun in his book.
