His handler described PD Brocks swimming as being like ‘a young Michael Phelps gliding through the water’.
In a short video shared on @PD_Brocks twitter page, the aquatic K-9 can be seen swimming around a small pond, trying to do his best to keep his head and neck out of the cold water.
And who can blame him with the water temperature being so chilly at this time of year?
Brock can be seen frequently looking round to make sure that his handler is still there and that he is ‘allowed’ to continue his unique blend of freestyle swimming in the pond.
In the funny clip, PD Brock manages to create a mini-tsunami with his huge paws as he appears to see just how much of a splash he can create whilst carving out a near-perfect circle in the pond.
Here at Emergency Services News, we love a ‘Land Shark’ – a term affectionately given to police dogs – and it is clear to see why.
These loyal and courageous animals have a character and personality that is enough to put fright into anyone silly enough to run away from them.
And yet, these majestic creatures are still a loyal and loving member of a police officers family.

Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
