I can’t have a puppy pool in my yard according to the rules. That’s disappointing, and downright heartbreaking when my hose-phobic dogs are both lying flat on their sides in the 97-degree shade, puffing like little locomotives. It’s too hot to run. It’s too hot to play. It’s too hot to even want to eat!
I solved that problem with my good friend, under-the-bed storage Tupperware! I filled it with water and then the dogs started to play! It’s not nearly big enough for them to wade in, but they stand in it up to their ankles and the look of relief is adorable.
Quick is not satisfied with standing in the water. He has to dig in it, and blow bubbles. He loves to blow bubbles! He blows them, runs around the yard at full speed, and then comes back to blow more!
Heres’ a video link to training your dog to blow bubbles. I’m lucky- Quick does it naturally! I could put a cue to it, but I’m not sure I want to. Can your dog blow bubbles? What does your dog like to do in water?
