I was just wondering how everyone's boxers do when it comes to water, swimming, bath time, etc. Mya does not like bath time. She will stand still and let me bathe her, but she doesn't like it and cannot hardly wait to get out.

When we go swimming at the park with my friend and her dogs Mya doesn't really go near the water and prefers to walk along the trees and stay on dry land. I have still never been able to get her to go into the pond and she is almost 3 years old!

Just wondering if this is a boxer thing or if its just a Mya thing. :)

Jackson's not fond of bath time. I have to literally shove him from behind into our walk in shower, with all four of his feet skidding along trying not to move - lol! Once he's in and the door is closed, he's good. We've never taken him swimming, so I don't know how he'd react to that.

Ty thinks water burns like acid. Echo loves water. She loves playing in it, swimming and bath time. She also hops into the shower every now and then.

Our Boy hated it. Oliver will join you in the shower if you don't watch him.

I've tried to kind of coax her into the pond at times, but she doesn't like it at all and she just stops moving all together lol.

There was one time this past summer that she chased the hose water a little bit, but it didn't last very long. ?

Haha so cute. Mya is definitely opposite. She won't even go in the bathroom and when we go to the pond or the pool she is as far away as possible. She's played with the hose once, but that was on an exceptionally hot day and I'm sure that had something to do with it lol

Mya had a bath last night and it is safe to say she still does not like water one bit lol :chair:
