Why when I got a dog bowl out do dogs still drink from the potty?
Because it’s a source of water. They don’t know what it is. They drink from it as they would from a puddle or a river.
Because someone left the lid up.
Yes they do!
Probable has to do with aeration of water found after each flush.
Yep, close the lid, problem goes away.
All self respecting dogs drink from the toilet, not the potty.
The flush means fresh water. Try one of those 5 gallon deals that don’t run dry in half a day.
It’s fresher and cooler and smells better?
My Aussie doesn’t drink from the toilet.
Instinct tells them running streams are fresher water than stagnant puddles.
My dog only drinks out of a fountain in have in the back yard. Even when their is ice on the pond.
I don’t see a problem with it, as long as you train them to flush afterward.
Because the lid was up and they are allowed to do it.
Because the toilet has everybody’s individual smell on and around it, so they are drawn to return there, as with a familiar fire hydrant.
Because they get a bucketfull of attention from their owners when they do it. The owners over-react by being either horrified and disgusted, or worse, thinking it’s ‘cute’ and inevitable.
This prompts another question; why do people have their drinks cooled with ice from any fast food restaurant, the flushed water in your home toilet or even the toilet in the restaurant is much cleaner.
Because dogs gotta do what dogs gotta do!
They like the taste of e coli
other than there own,its as close to a butt hole as they can get.
This makes me gage....”Good boy give Mommy a Kiss...”
I still keep the lid down, though. :-)
Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.
