For almost every dog out there, water is either the greatest fun ever or the scariest and most despicable thing. If you’ve ever lived with a dog who falls into the latter category, you’ve probably seen how it’s impossible to get them into the water, even if it’s just for a quick bath. And you can forget about a pool and the sea, too.
Some pups just prefer to stay dry. The size of the dog in question isn’t always the most important factor, either. Sometimes, even huge dogs such as mastiffs can be scared to death when going near a body of water. On the other hand, though, when a dog does like the water, it’s almost impossible to keep them dry if they have access to it. Golden retrievers and Labradors are famous for their love of water, for example.
Rosie, the dog who stars in the video below, has a distaste for water that is pretty evident. The ball that she was playing with fell into the pool, and she just won’t get into the water under any circumstances.
Instead, she thought of an alternative and clever way to get her ball back. What a smart pup! Watch how Rosie overcame her fear in the cute video just below.
