    Do you walk your dogs when it's raining? Do they like the rain or not?

    My lot love the rain we do our usual walks when it's raining, sometimes even have a longer walk because it's nice to be out when there's not many other people about. :eek:

    There wasnt much choice today as its been raining constantly where we are all day long
    Toff seemed to like it , though he wont go into the garden if its raining , so no doubt we will again :)

    We go out in the rain but Tillys not to keen at first....then she just doesn't care, but the rain has been so heavy and non stop that we don't stay out quite so long. Sadly our garden is just a big mud pit at the moment as we have just finished having an extention built and the garden has been completely churned up so Im sure you can imagine the mud.......aaahhhhh!!!

    I do indeed but he's only a pup so his walks are very short anyway. He hates going out in the garden to pee or to play when it's raining but seems not to mind going for walks in the rain. Good thing too as it's constantly raining in this country! :rolleyes:

    We walk as normal.

    As the Norwegians say, there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing....

    I put my raincoat and wellies on everyday so it makes no difference to me and to be honest walking the dogs is the first thing I do in the morning so I don't even usually notice whether it is raining or not until I am out there!

    Dogs don't seem to mind the rain, it just runs off the border terriers coat and Sid has no brains no feeling lol

    If I let them out in the garden they go out like a pair of big girls blouses, picking their way into the grass so as not to get their feet wet ..........get hold of the leads and it's a different tale altogether, they love going up the moors in the wind and rain:):)

    We do tend to take shorter walks - but I mainly walk along the beach and I find when its wet I just don't enjoy it so much.
    The dogs don't seem to mind, although getting Lilly out the door can be a little tricky, once she's out she doesn't seem to notice the rain.

    Shawnee loves to go out in the rain - she prefers wet weather to dry :D

    I prefer it dry myself :)

    Toby doesn't do walks yet but he's a wimp when it comes to going outside to pee in the rain. He hates it. :D

    Do I have any choice on the west of Scotland? Our usual weather is rain.
    It's the wind I find a problem - the dogs don't generally but hail in a strong wind gets us all running home.

    Lucky gets the same as usual, rains most of the time here anyway. He hates going out in the garden for a pee in the rain, but goes nuts when u pick up his leash. It's quieter when its raining anyway u don't get so many dafties about.:)

    It depends on the rain if its light rain they dont notice it, if its heavy rain like all day yesterday I cant take them out as Shila freaks out and trys to get it off her :rolleyes: so its easier not to take them out when its like that x
