    Defaultodd potty behavior

    Our Daisy is a great girl, but she has a rather bizarre behavior. Anytime she has an opportunity to get into some water fun (river, beach etc.) She goes potty. Not just #1, but #2 also. Even if we exercise her beforehand and she does her business, the water seems to find more! She hasn't pottied in the house since she was a little one, but the water potty is odd (and a bit embarrassing). Anyone with a story or way to detour the water potty (don't think other beachgoers will appreciate her excitement)?

    I would wait until she eliminates, then reward her immediately with the swimming. If she sees Potty as a way to gain access to swimming, she will do it quicker and quicker and then you can be fairly certain it gets done on dry land

    As you mentioned, it can have to do with excitement. She gets worked up which gets the bowels going.

    When do you feed her?

    I would try and sort of water potty train her. So, similar to house training, watch for the signs and take her to a specific area (away from the water) when you see them.
