Otis was born in December and came to his home in February. We had snow shortly after that. His first exposure to water was in the spring, he was about 5 months old. He loves playing in both

Jack loves both. He'll even get in the shower with you if you leave the door open.

Deezul loves water, doesn't mind the rain either. He hasn't experienced snow yet, but I'd imagine that he'll love that too.

I selected loves snow but not water because there wasn't an exact option for us. My GSD loves snow but is neutral toward water. He doesn't mind it, but he doesn't love it either.

I can't answer because I don't know! I haven't tried taking Bailey to a lake to swim. I probably should have this summer, but didn't. He was born May 1, so he's never seen snow. I have a feeling he will love it. Rain doesn't seem to faze him and he sure doesn't mind getting dirty running around in the wet and rain.

CRAZY about snow and the beach. What a pain getting all the sand out of their fur.

The shore relaxes Stryker so much he usual takes a dump in the surf. I know, gross, but what am I supposed to do?

Our pup was not crazy about water at first. Then she started chasing the water from the hose and would bite it. She never went in and swam. My husband took our shepherd and little Pom to the cost. She saw Indy our little dog swim and then saw my husband in the water it was all over after that. Now she swims and retrieves balls from the water.

We really were not sure she would take to it. She just needed time.

All my dogs love the snow. They lay in it, roll in it, dig in it, and eat it. They especially love it when the snow is deep.

My oldest male is scared of water. I think his attuide about water rubbed off on the other two. Now they act scared of it.
