Does your GSD love or hate water?

My 4 month old pup absolutely loves water! She is always sticking her paws in her water bowl, jumps in big puddles, and today she jumped in the bath tub while i was filling it up! She just splashed & played in it for 10 minutes. Looking forward to see if she likes the lake. Does anyone else have a GSD that loves water?


Hope this question hasnt already been asked?

Re: Does your GSD love or hate water?

Both of my girls love, love, love it! Did I say they love it? Crazy for it.

My boy can take or leave it, but then he is a little aloof and pretty much can take or leave anything.

Love it! Leo is hesitant about waves but otherwise likes water and Grace adores it in any form. From surfing at the Outer Banks of NC to fetching sticks in the Yellowstone River in MT, she will swim in anything given the opporunity.

Re: Does your GSD love or hate water?

Yes! Although, she won't swim she loves to run into the river and catch a stick. She hates rain, however, and baths (I think this is more due to the slippery floor than anything else...)

Re: Does your GSD love or hate water?

Both Kelso and Allie love it..but in different ways

Kelso loves to be sprayed and "attacks" water, tackles the sprinkler, divebombs into the baby pool, sloths around in it ect...

Allie loves to take dips on her own accord, and can often be found trying to swim in the outdoor water bowl on hot days....literally! She is just not as intense about it as Kelso, and mostly likes to just get her feet wet

They both enjoy rain, and the one pond/larger body of water we have been to

Mandalay loves water as long as it is only water and not water with soap added.

Rain, pools, lakes, puddles....loves them!

Bathtub, shower, basin at the dog wash...hates it.

Re: Does your GSD love or hate water?

my dog always loved the hose. just started going further out
in the creek.

don't let your dog start tipping the water bowl. i think they go
through a tip-the-water-bowl stage.

jumping in the bath tub is cute but they can
get hurt doing that. they can easily slip and hurt
their legs. i think it's more dangerous when they
jump out.

Re: Does your GSD love or hate water?

My boy loves water in any and all forms and if it's moving water,even better. I took him to Lake Superior when he was just 6 months old and I couldn't get him out of the lake until he was shivering so badly from the cold that I was getting worried. Forget trying to use a sprinkler or a hose when he's around!
