Discourage Your Dog from Drinking from the Toilet Bowl

2:59:00 AM

Dogs are easily attracted to drink water from the toilet bowl because the water is cool and easily accessible. However, dog owners must discourage their dogs from this bad drinking habit for obvious health reasons.

Toilet water is not the most ideal thirst quencher. Bacteria and germs in the water can cause gastrointestinal problems and diseases to your pooch. Add to this, toilet cleaning agents that you use may contain strong chemicals that can be fatal when ingested.

How can you discourage your dog from drinking water from the toilet bowl?
  • Keep the toilet lid down when not in use.
  • Refill his feeding bowl with fresh water twice a day.
  • Get a pet fountain or feeding bowl with water dispenser (especially if you’re not at home during the day).
