Is your dog a sloppy drinker?

Kayto drinks out his bowl and spills everywhere, walks away and drips all over the place! I place mats under the bowl but he seems to still defeat the mat.

Ridley is VERY sloppy. He gets huge mouthfuls of water and then walks around letting it drain all over the floor. He discovered the endless water bowls (toilets) within a day or two of when we brought him home and while it was kind of funny for a while, I've finally resorted to keeping the lid down on all but one that is in a decent location for controlling where the water goes. We keep a water bucket in the basement but neither dog uses it unless we are in the basement.

I have found that if I use a deep stock pot for the water with only a couple of inches that the high sides will minimize the splashing on the floor.

I would like to be as good as my dogs think I am.

Skylar is so ridiculous, I don't even try to prevent the sloppyness anymore. I actually think she forgets to swallow, she walks away from the bowl and leaves the biggest trail, or she'll come and give me huge sloppy kisses. It was cute when she was a baby and only could take a bit, now she's huge and its horrible hahaha.

Abby never drips, don't know why, same with my last dog who was a mutt... both very neat. My brother's little 7 pound Havanese leaves a trail across the room.

Abby never drips,

If she doesn't drip, are you sure your Abby is really a GSD? I thought splashing gallons of water while drinking was in the breed standard.

I would like to be as good as my dogs think I am.

Gideon is horrible with drinking. He just lets the water fall out of his mouth as he walks away. I always tell him that I wonder if I got a st. Bernard or a GSD with the way he drinks.
