|Castlemaid||The filtered water may still have a taste/smell of chlorine to it. When I was fishkeeping, the recommendation was to let water sit for 24 hrs to allow the chlorine in the water to evaporate out. Maybe you can try that for a few days and see if your dog likes the house water better after it has sat for a while?|

Why does my dog like to eat poo and roll in stinky stuff?
Sometimes they do stuff dogs do.
If the water has been standing a long time or may be contaminated with fertilizer or chemical treatments I would probably consider interrupting her.

Anyone Find this Odd?
My 17 month old GSD Tess likes to drink water from the mud puddles in our backyard. I just fed her and as always, put down a fresh bowel of filtered water. She didn't touch the water after eating, instead she asked to go out and went directly to the nearest hole filled with water...(my yard is a swamp right now, remnants of a very harsh winter). I love her to death but she has some very strange habits.
