All of my dogs are water & snow dogs!

Visko was born in February and he's in the water more than out, even in the winter he'll go in and I'm in Vermont on the Canadian border!

Hope was born in November and she's a fish not a GSD! I can't keep her out of the stream in our back yard!

Yanka was born in March she will go tromping through the water but not obsessed as the above 2 kids, but none the less LOVES her time spent in the water

Xena will stand to her elbows in the water but will NOT go any further (rescue so I don't know her DOB)

Roxy (don't know her DOB) was an awesome water dog she would run and jump off the docks to go get her ball in the water plus she also like to attack the water coming out the hose as well. Hope & Visko attack the water too

EVERYONE ABSOLUTELY LOVES THE SNOW EQUALLY! That's our favorite activity season! Well Fall & Winter! Hiking and snowshoeing here we come!

Jinx is of course obsessed with water.. she was in snow before coming home as a pup and of course loved it so no doubt as a 1 yr old when snow comes again she'll love it. She was born early winter (November) and just loved the water. I'm pretty sure its genetic because all these Wildhaus pups are crazy water dogs no matter when born... Pretty much same as Rayne on this end.. if water is around she's off and in it before I can make a decision if I want her there or if she's leashed she screaches stupid loud and has a mini panic attack if she can see it and not play in it.. gotta remove her from the area to calm her down.

Riley was born in january. he LOVES snow but would rather die before enjoying playing in water. he freaks out if he goes in past his feet.

Shasta loves snow more than Riley. She'll swim but doesnt seem to HEY LOOK WATER LEMME GO LEMMEGO!!!!! with water. She does it because i'm in the water. nothing more.

Zena... adores snow. She'll burrow through if she's able. Water.. throw a ball and she doesnt care.

Niko was born in June. He HATES water. He will wade in it, but won't go deeper and does not like the hose. Rosa is the same way and she was born in March.

They both love snow.

Dharma was born in July. She loves water more than fish do. She has only swam in a river once but she was in heaven. She plays in the kiddie pools at the park like she was born in them. She lays in them and puts her whole face in the water. She loves snow just as much. She will romp and roll in it and I have to drag her inside if there is snow on the ground. She comes in covered in so much snow she looks like a white gsd.

Tessa is not a huge fan of either. The brat won't even go outside to pee if it is raining. I have to PUSH her out the door. Because her hips are so bad she can't physically get in the pools at the park. A couple of times when it has been really hot out I have tried to hose her off and she acts like I am killing her. Once she is wet and cooler, she is happier but getting her wet is chore. I have no idea when she was born.
