I have a 3 year old male dog, all cute and charming, and affectionate, but … if someone* forgets to put down the toilet lid, you can be sure to find him drinking the toilet water, yuk! I always though it was a myth, a joke, but this is a reality!
This is eww, and at the same time it can't be healthy at all!
Of course, he has a clean water bowl, that I changed twice a day.
Do your dogs do the same?
Why are dogs doing it?
And, the ultimate question, how to dissuade them from doing this ?
*by someone, understand my husband.

Male dogs are like little boys, they like to do dirty things, and do what is forbidden. I never heard of a female dog doing this, I assume this is genetic and inherent to "boys" 🙂
ps: I have the same problem as you with my man 😁

I don't get it myself! I don't see how it can be appealing!
First of all the smell. I know dogs have a much more developed sense of smell. But in the other hand, they love to smell poop and pee from other dogs! So I guess that human toilets should be very interesting to them. I don't know if I am being ironic, sarcastic, or realistic when saying this!
Secondly, the toilet bowl is not easily accessible! So why do they put so much effort in reaching the water? I would understand if they are deadly thirsty, but of course that's not the case!
Thirdly, the rebellion against something forbidden? I don't think animal think like that, but who knows. You tell them not to do something, so will it encourage them to do it? Like a kid would dare his parents?
