Just curious, how many people have puppies that like water? Cause the 2 family dogs we've had both hate water, despite them being a combination of 2 water foul hunting dogs (1st: poodle/cocker spaniel, 2nd: golden/poodle). (We're doing more effort with getting 2nd used to water, slowly working)

I’m no expert but I’ve had a few pups over the years.. There is a major difference between “water” activities for dogs or any animal for that matter. An example is simply that a bathtub full of water is not nearly the same as a warm lake full of boats, other dogs and people to play with, along with endless room to roam in the water. Just like humans don’t love the rain compared to playing in the ocean. Just my .02

I guess that's a good point. My parents' goldendoodle puppy hates the bath, but while hesitant, did like to play in one of those plastic sleds we filled with water when you made it a game (using hand to splash water, after some hesitation she'd attack the splashes lol)

Our family business is dog training. In my experience with puppies and dogs, it has way more to do with exposure at a young age than genetics. We have a little kiddie pool to start them slowly and as early as possible.

I’ve seen it go both ways. IMHO I think it has a lot to do with their first introduction to water. Did they get tossed in a pool they don’t know how to get out of or just manhandled in a sink spraying out COLD tap water? Probs not going to have the best associations with water long term. Now consider a lukewarm to warm stream or bath of water with soothing petting, compliments, and maybe treats. 10/10 would recommend!

I introduced my dog's puppies to water at a week old,warm water didn't get their heads wet, no soap and dried them with a soft towels by the time they were 12 weeks old you turned on the shower and they jumped right in, they were poodles and any water anywhere they jumped right in
