I don't walk in the rain but that's for ME! My dogs love it and don't care. I stand under the deck roof while they play in the rain.

Nothing like a good walk in the rain, my dogs love it!
We don't go if there is thunder or torrential rain.

I find it interesting how few people here walk their dogs in the rain--we will walk unless it is coming down in torrents, hailing, or thundering and lightning. Toby isn't thrilled about getting wet, but he manages just fine!

If it's raining hard its usually a "go go go, pee pee pee!!" then a run back into the house LOL.

Some days when it just pours all day you don't have a choice.

I personally love walking Brooks while I am under an umbrella unless there is a wind then it isn't any fun.

We bought a nice rain jacket for Lola. I live in the Seattle area as well. The jacket keeps her whole back side dry- only her head and feet get wet. It just sheds the rain off of her- and on cold days it keeps her warm.

We don't go for walks in the rain. But we make up for it by having lots of playtime inside!

Buddy loved going out in the rain because when he came in, he got "toweled down". All you had to do is show him the towel, he would get all excited. LOL!!!!

It depends on how hard it is actually raining out. If it is a downpour, I say no until it calms down a little.
