Dusty and Cougar look on encouragingly as Iko, the very muscular mixed breed sinking dog, gets a feel for the way out of the pool. Unfortunately at the moment she is upside-down.

Iko is glad to be out of the water after she dunked her head the first time, but was right back in the pool in no time.

Cameras everywhere ensure you can find your pets online when you're at work and they're at play. (And yes, you can move the cameras remotely!)

Bruce faces some competition for that board, but we think the yellow lab is more interested in eating the board than surfing on it.

This Splash Dog, Cougar, is nicknamed Chunk. He manages to heft his wubba and his considerable bulk back up out of the pool for another jump!

Izzy cools off in the fountain ... or is it Roland? Only their owner, Brad Sherwood, knows.

Here goes nothin. Bruce is going to take to this and you will never see him without this board somewhere near him again.

Roxy jumps! And makes less of a splash than you might expect by a star like she is.

It even LOOKS like a resort. Paradise Ranch is tucked in behind lush foliage and a security gate on La Tuna Canyon.
