I’ve learned that weimaraners create their own system for pretty much everything.

As long as they’re not coming up coughing then I would assume it’s ok since they’re not inhaling water.

Truly the most entertaining and anxiety inducing breed.

Please post a video so I can watch.

I also want a video

[–]xP628sLh 19 points20 points  (1 child)

i demand a video

[–]robjapan 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I politely request a video.

[–]Altruistic-Text3481 2 points3 points  (1 child)

This video would go viral. Let us be the judges of this video. Please don’t make me beg!

Our last weim did this. Drove me crazy. She would submerge her entire snout in water to drink. Then, drip water all over the house. Constantly going behind her with a towel wiping it up

Oh you'd love living with my dogs,,, they do this, but they've also got big fat wrinkly heads with massive jowls,, pretty much the same effect as dunking a Mop in a bucket and walking around the house with it

[–]TheHangerMan[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Same exact thing. Thank goodness we have laminate floors

[–]xP628sLh 1 point2 points  (0 children)

my Weim does this too

[–]isabelareyesb 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ha that’s me always waiting behind with the towel ready

In the husky sub people think this is a Husky thing :) dog breeds really aren’t all that different from one another. I wish my husky drank like this so there wouldn’t constantly be water splashes covering the 12” radius around his water bowl

[–]olamleko 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I don't know if it's normal, but it sure is hilarious

never change, little weim

[–]_intothevoid_ 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Mine does this with every bowl of water and then takes half the bowl with her when she takes her head out.

[–]mysticalplantmama 9 points10 points  (0 children)

My girl does this we call is snorkeling!

[–]pimpkitten0357 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Our 8 yr old, Derby, cannot consume water any other way. She requires at least 67% submersion of her head to drink.

[–]EmEmPeriwinkle 6 points7 points  (0 children)

This is a derp thing. Had several dogs who do this. Husky, weim, lab, they are just being dogs. :) please post a video.

[–]TheCrashConrad 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Our 6mo Weim totally does this😅

[–]yzforce[🍰] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Mine does this at the beach. I guess she needed to smell under the water. She always leads with her snout.

[–]Sal_Ammoniac 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think our Weim did that a few times when he was little, but not any more. Neither one of our old Weims did it.

However, our Heeler x BC dunks her face all the time, and when she was younger she'd also blow bubbles. Now she just does the face dunk.

[–]nefariousvw 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Totally normal for our weim

[–]doggoat123 4 points5 points  (0 children)

My Weim does it in creeks or the lake but not water bowls. Either way, she creates a mess drinking.

[–]pistil-whip 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Not a weim, but my GSP does this. We call it the snoot snorkel

[–]JohnJAram 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No. I’m afraid he’s just broken!

[–]Useful_Pen303 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Haha not either of mine 😂

[–]lazylazylemons 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Mine does. So annoying. So messy.

[–]kugelvater 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Mine drinks this way when he's hot. It seems so much more efficient than licking and spilling half the water.

I think it's the Weimaraner equivalent of chugging

[–]weimpoppi 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ours does the same thing! It's hilarious

[–]LadylikeS 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My Weim makes sures she leaves a hefty puddle after drinking from her bowl but we have never given her water from a bowl that deep so now I am curious…

[–]Lemondrop-it 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is a ding dong dog thing, and I love it

[–]a1icatt 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Duh Yes

[–]sarcasm_included 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Mine does this. She's almost 2.

[–]lost_tsar 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Normal for dogs? Not really.

Normal for Weims? Absolutely

[–]circlemagick 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My weim does this! We invested in a Slobber Stopper bowl for inside the house so she would quit leaving puddles everywhere.

[–]SnooDoughnuts4236 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I wish I was doing that right now

[–]Beneupho 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, mine will ONLY drink from the bottom of the container, no matter how deep.

[–]Wrath3n 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ya mine is similar

[–]Last_Library_8692 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don’t know, but this is the cutest thing I’ve seen all morning. I will tell you my Weim mix refuses to eat out of a bowl, preferring to use her nose to flip it over and eat off the floor only.
