Well he never did swim during the 2 weeks of the sessions!
We tried passive and aggressive techniques and they all failed. The mystery remains.
Just what is it that got him spooked?
At our home pool he will now play on the steps and stay in the shallow area. Any attempt to bring him to the deep end or to "swim" will result in him running out the pool.
We are giving him time to get reacquainted with the water as if we were starting all over again. He seems happy when allowed to roam free and play.
The summer is still young so perhaps giving him time and space will work to our advantage.
Time will tell.
