Why do dogs drink out of the toilet?

Update:

I think if dogs knew what humans used the toilet for, they'd be all that much more glad to drink out of it.

    Because many owners are stupid enough to leave the toilet lid up for them to be able.

    Hi dog lover,

    No matter what your dog’s problem behavior is…

    Be it jumping, peeing inappropriately, aggression, pulling on the leash…or whatever…

    There is ONE SOLUTION that can help STOP this problem now

    The sad fact is…

    Most Dog trainers miss this solution entirely.

    They give you cookie cutting training programs.

    They use outdated and ‘mean’ dominance techniques.

    Or worse yet…

    They have no qualifications and are complete phonies.

    So what’s the answer to stopping your Dog’s behavior problems?

    In 4 simple words…

    Discovering your dog’s hidden intelligence.

    Let me explain…

    In my 10 years as a certified trainer…there’s ONE BIG LESSON I have learned.

    More intelligent dogs are better behaved.

    A More intelligent dog takes commands easier

    …and understands what you need from them.

    The good news is…

    No matter how clever you think your dog is.

    The simple answer is that the water in the toilet bowl is often fresher and cooler than the water in your dog's water bowl. To us, toilet water is gross and full of germs. ... The constant flushing oxygenates the water, and the porcelain bowl keeps the water cool. Dogs don't understand what humans use the toilet for.

    It all boils down to the owners. Not having clean fresh water readily available in several places, not leaving the lid down on the toilette, not properly training the dog, easy.
