Rain

Post by Nifty staffy on Sat Jul 01 2017, 07:15

This is the first time that it's raining when Nifty goes outside and she is not at all impressed.
She has shelter but is very unhappy.
How else can she do "her business" ?
(I'm probably wrapping her up in cotton wool here but then OH suggested a rain coat - noooooo !! )

It's not unusual for our brave staffies to not like the rain. At the moment, I'd say get Nifty used to it by going out briefly when it rains, even though she might not need to go, and give her treats and make going out in the rain fun.

Some dogs never get to like it, though, and quite a few of us do resort to coats.

I'm guessing you're not in the deep south, whereabouts are you in France? Just being curious...

Ah that is a Staffy trait I'm afraid. So many HATE the rain. Misty will not go outside when it's raining, as soon as she feels the rain she wants to go in and not go for a walk. She will put off going to toilet too until she has to.

Yep, this a thing hehe, Hank will go out only to do his business and then run back inside but will not go for a walk in it, he isn't too bothered by light rain or drizzle but if it's heavy I just get a look of why are you doing this to me? Laughing

Uh hu very normal !! My Flo also holds on till she really really has to go and then it's done quickly, none of this finding the right spot she normally does and then you'd think the rain was some evilness as she comes in shaking it off and being such a woos

PHEW !
I thought I was going mad but if this is a special hidden staffy feature, I'm all reassured Laughing

Liz - I'm in the very north, close to the Belgian border so climate very similar to the UK really.
So very glad not to have to deal with a pup in the middle of winter

Well well,I think Tess must be the exception as she loves the rain,she even goes out of her way to go through deep puddles.I have often thought there is something very odd about Tess. Wink

I've got to the 'will go out in the rain' stage but am quite jealous of 'loves the rain'

Northern France, much underrated! I lived in Belgium for about 12 years, love that part of the world.

My dogs aren't fans of the rain either. It's very much pee & head for the door. A pocket full of treats can tempt a round the block walk in the rain if it's not too heavy

I wish Gus didn't like the rain. We end up walking in the most horrendous weather but he has to have his walk haha.
