Do Havs Like to Play in Water?

In my research on Havs, I read that they like to play in water. Have you found that to be the case with yours? Do they like to swim? On our last camping trip I had Willow down to the shore of a lake, but she didn't seem very interested. However, on a recent walk, she seemed to like to stand under our neighbor's sprinkler.

My little Bandit fell in our swimming pool twice. He doesn't like water and he doesn't like bath time, although he can swim like a champ. He doesn't even like to walk in the grass to potty early in the morning because it is wet from the falling dew. However, Sir Jasper loves water so much that he sticks all his paws in the outside water bowl (I keep a large water bowl outside with fresh water for when I take them out to play and potty. I do not leave them unattended due to the pool). Anyway, it is so funny. He will stick one paw in and swirl it around, then stick another paw in. He does this almost every time we go outside. I'll try to get a pic. He also doesn't mind bath time!

Kodi and Pixel both like to paddle around in shallow water (belly deep). Neither one likes to swim.

That's funny! At least it'll come in handy before he comes in when he gets his feet dirty outside.

W-E-L-L… Getting our PAWS wet in wet grass for something as mundane as POTTYING is COMPLETELY different than playing in the edge of a pond on a hot day. Or so Kodi tells me. I had to practically kick him off the back deck today to get him to go out and poop… and it as only drizzling at the time!

I have never been in the ocean or a swimming pool, so I don't know about that. I do love, love, love to run through a sprinkler Popi threatens to put mi in the drier afterwards (see related thread)

Willow doesn't mind wet grass but she's not crazy about the rain. I don't have trouble getting her to do her business, but she normally wants to get right back in. She seems to like sprinklers though. Don't quite know what the difference would be between a sprinkler and rain!

Teddy hates to take a bath but will be super happy to run into muddy puddles on the road when we go for our morning walks (or just sit on wet grass).

We've never had a chance to go to a pool or beach but I did take him to swamp at the Forrest a few months back. He tried to jump in (it's very dirty and no dogs allowed to get in). He enjoyed playing at the swamp edges - dipping his feet in the smelly water (neither of us appreciate the stink he brought back from the smelly swamp).

Have come home many times to find a little mud in his water bowl so i suspect that dips his paws in his water sometimes.
