I selected both but Abby is more like the above. Loves snow, kinda likes water especially if it is hot but she can usually take it or leave it. She will retrieve in the water and swim and enjoy it but it's only because she is retrieving.

My My loves water

'My My' love loves water. turn on the hose and he leaps and runs through it. He chases the sprinklers around and around. Still a puppy at 8 months, it's a good exercise for him on a sunny day. is offline

I can't answer! My pup hasn't seen snow yet! She HATES water though, she'll even jump puddles. LOL

I hope I can get her to like it eventually

I've had some here who like snow and water,some who like either or neither.Right now all of the dogs love water,except for when it's bath time. I don't know about snow.

Ky LOVES both! It took a bit for her to get in the water ... but once I convinced her it was safe look out! She now has her own doggie pool for the hot weather!

She was born May 30, I brought her home in August!

Her first snow? I was mean LOL ... I picked her up and plopped her right in it and then laughed my butt off at the look of disgust on her face ... but about 30 seconds later she was a hyper freak running around the yard burrowing and eating and leaping and bounding ... hilarious!

Haven't introduced Apollo to water yet, but he sure does love the snow!
Once it warms up, I'll take him to the lake and see what he does.

Hi, new to site and new to GSD. Heidi is 5month and when I break the hose out to fill her water bowel she will chase the stream all over the yard.

Kono loves the snow! She will try to shovel the snow into her mouth while running its the cutest thing! Haha! She doesn't like water as much though. Last time she got sprayed with water she tried to hide behind me. And of course she doesn't like the bath so I wouldnt be able to really tell if she is ok with water until the summer (Unless I want her to become a pupcicle )

Well, we finally got a real dumping of snow, so I can report back.

My puppy does not like water, but LOVES snow:

Berlin's first snow day! | Facebook

She likes me to kick the snow, then she barks at it, so it will go in her mouth. LOL

She'd try to take off, if I try and bring her inside and then I can't settle her down for about 5-10 minutes, she keeps trying to get back outside!
