    Default Puppy Playing in Water

    My puppy is obssessed with playing in her water bowl. She has 5 in various spots around the yard, but there's 1 in particular that she loves to splash in. I've had a large flat rock in the bottom so she can't tip it over, but how can I stop her splashing? It's just her front feet and legs, and I'm forever having to refill the container.

    Hi there

    If you have other water bowls that she leaves alone, I would say just let her play with it. She obviously thinks its a great game.

    i am buying one of them clam kiddie pools for my dogs as my older one LOVES splashing in her water!
    they're cheap and durable, and good for summer! just make sure you change the water regularly to prevent mosquito's breeding in it.

    Hi there,

    My lab (who is now just over a year old) used to do the same all the time, drove me insane and at the time i thought he would never stop, the laundry used to be like a swimming pool and i remember one time he actually fell asleep with his two front paws in the bowl!! He did stop doing it of his own accord and it was while he was still fairly young, since then we have moved on to a variety of 'habits' that at the time seem like forever but i think in reality don't last for too long thankfully-hopefully this will b the case with your pup.

    forgot to say he also has one of those clam shell things too and loves it

    My 2 little puppies are obessed with water as well and often try to tip the water out of their dish and they put there whole head in it and splash around so i went and bought a little trough which they cant tip over but in the back yard it allows them to splash and jump in and out and its stopped them from doing it to their drinking water.

    I have a cute puppy. She started recently playing with her bowl full of water and her she also plays with her bowl with kibble. A lake is a good place to start to make fun with your pet.

    My Molly (19 months old) also used to put her front paws in her water bowl and get water everywhere. It's just because she loves water. I got her a kids pool to play in and she loves it. She still played with the water bowl for a while but she grew out of it, although every now and again when she's bored she'll put her paws in there (still technically a puppy though)

    Mine have always loved water.





    Now a year old they will even lie out in the rain to chew bones, jump in the cattle trough and play in puddles. They still adore their clam shell pool.
