I know lots of dogs don't like the garden hose. Not sure if that is conditioning because they've been sprayed by it for a joke and got a fright or if it's something else.
It is the only thing so far that I have noticed Banjo is scared of (apart from that blowfly but she got over that ). It's not a big deal, but I was wondering if there might be a way to make her less scared of it?
She will go hide under the house before I even turn the tap open when I pick it up. She's even scared of things that she associates with the hose. The first time she noticed our wading pool with some water in it, she seemed quite interested. But then I filled it up with the hose and now she won't even come near it. I would love her to use the pool so she can cool down on hot summer days when I'm not home.
