start with one of those paint trays, with a shallow and deep part.
Put a bit of water in the base, very shallow at first. put in a treat, some peas, stones, shells ect ( ALL CLEAN! )
And then put your rat NEAR the tray, show them a treat, then drop it into the shallow part of the tray. They will go in and get it and will be standing in water, then show them another treat and put it in the deeper end, they should go check it out. Do this and very gradually raise the water, a little tiny bit more a day.
Do not force your rats into the water.
