Are you grossed out when your dog drinks out of the toilet bowl? The reason your pooch may love that water is simple: It's cold, it's constantly aerated (on average, a toilet is flushed five times a day) and there's an ample supply. If you can't stop your dog from drinking from the toilet, be sure to use nontoxic cleaning supplies to keep it clean. But to change your dog's habits, consider switching to a stainless steel or ceramic water dish. These will keep the water cool and make it more appealing to him to drink from his own dish.
