It's no secret that dogs will drink out of a pond or toilet or wherever. But will they drink out of those places if there's clean water right next to them? That's the question. I'm guessing that dogs will always choose the clean water. Whether it's from a Berkey or any other water filter system before they drink toilet or pond water.

Life is a lot like a baseball pitch. Sometimes you get a fast ball down the middle of the plate and sometimes you get a curve ball in the dirt.

Since this thread has gone to the dogs, I have to tell about my spoiled little pocket puggle in sig pic. She has never known what it is to be really thirsty, so is very picky with her water. At a friends house, she chased his much bigger dog all over the yard, (yes she is a little bully as well) till his dog was thirsty enough to go drink from the bird bath. He wanted to get a dish of water for her, and I said she won't drink tap water from a strange dish. He laughed got it anyway, nope she wouldn't drink it. She wants cold water from the fridge, preferably from a brita pitcher. She will drink ice cold water from my hand when needed.

I'll just say...only child/pet...you know how that goes!! [emoticon]

My dog would most definitely drink from the green pond instead of the fresh clean filtered water. She's not a dumb dog, but always without fail prefers the worst available water option around her. Strange...

I'm among those here that don't filter my RV water at all, but use bottled water for drinking and cooking. The RV tank water is for showering and cleaning. Oh, and the dog bowl.

I can relate Jerry. We had a cat...God Rest her Soul...that when we got take out fish fries, we had to give her some. She would wine and meow like crazy until she got her share. Then one time the place we always got our fish from was closed so we got it from another place. It was terrible. I ate two bites and threw it away. Our cat.....Put her nose to the dish, turned her head and walked away LOL Animals are smarter than we give them credit for.

The thing about dogs is that their digestive system is very different than humans and can tolerate things humans can't. They can eat rancid meat and even their own poop. Try eating your own poop, lol!!

They will sometimes drink water out of a toilet because it's cooler, oxygenated from flushing and can have less bacteria than water that's been sitting in a dirty dish for a day or two. Anytime our dog has a sip out of our toilet, I still go eeewww that's digusting... Some humans have recently been reported as having no potable water provided and being forced to drink from toilets. Now that is disgusting.

Bad reporting. It's a combo toilet and drinking fountain. potable water is supplied to the unit, drinking fountain is on top.

Not just bad, it is the fake news media pushing their agenda. The sad part is people believe this stuff.

I use these in my stick house for about 6 years, i have a 10 micron in front of it, they last for at least 6-10 months depending on the amount of water we use.
