Many dog owners like to take their dogs with them wherever they go, such as for a drive in the car, a ride on the bike or even in a hot air balloon – but how many people would take their dogs scuba diving?
One chap would – Sergey Gorbunov, a professional scuba diver from Russia. Sergey’s Dachshund, named Boniface, goes scuba diving with his owner and even has his own specially made ‘doggie dry suit’ and full helmet to wear while he’s under the water. Sergey insists that his dog really enjoys going scuba diving with him, and prefers it to watching while his owner goes it alone.
Sergey admitted that Boniface was nervous the first time he tried scuba diving, and didn’t seem to like his dog dry suit or his helmet. However, as the dog began to descend into the pool where he practiced, he began to enjoy it. Now Boniface goes scuba diving regularly in the sea with his owner, as ITN News reports here.
