Why do dogs love mud so much? It’s like a magnet to my dog!?

Okay so my black lab, who won’t even drink out of his outside water bowl if it has one leaf in it, had a ball playing in a mud puddle out in our back yard today (leaving him AND me covered in mud lol). I swear he loveeees to get all muddy and messy! hehe

Sounds like my brother’s lab. If there is anything that resembles water, she is in it! I came home one day to find she decided to play in the bathtub, that someone left the water in! The house was a mess!

    I think the mud is fun for dogs and helps them to cool down. Dogs also have some sense of cleanliness like humans I think, so your dog won’t drink from his water bowl if he finds a foreign object in it.References :

    Sounds like a lab to me! My Husky likes puddles and mud too- anything cold or wet :) References :
