Frequently Asked Questions:
Why don't dogs like rain?
You may have noticed a reluctance in your dog when trying to encourage them to go to the bathroom while it's raining. It is not an uncommon problem. Some dogs are quite averse to going out in bad weather to do their business. There are a few proposed reasons for this:
- Wet feet: it stands to reason, that if we don't like walking out onto water-logged, squishy grass, then our dogs may not like that feeling either. Going to the toilet while raining means getting their sensitive paws wet, and some dogs really dislike this feeling.
- Training: a lack of exposure to wet grass during toilet training may contribute to avoidance going to the bathroom during rainy weather. Dogs can be quite particular about the conditions that are right for them to go to the toilet.
- Phobias: some dogs will have a phobia of storms. Certain cues like rain, wind and changes in barometric pressure can be associated with a storm and dogs may become uneasy
There are several ways you can help encourage your dog to go to the toilet when it is raining. Trying to create a positive association with wet grass through training can be beneficial. Bringing your dog's bowl with their meal and offering on wet grass is a way to teach them that wet grass will still bring a reward, food. If your dog really hates getting their feet wet, you can put a rain coat and rain boots on to make this more pleasant for your dog. If your dog does show any signs of storm phobia, it is important to address this with your veterinarian.
