I also live in Florida and have an Anatolian Shepherd. We have 5 acres with a large pond, small goldfish pond and a pool, our Anatolian Shepherd has never gone in the ponds or the pool. He avoids water from the hose but drinks out of the goldfish pond. We also have an American Bulldog which loves water, swims in the pond and gets in the pool and tries to eat the water out of the hose. So my opinion is that Anatolian Shepherd do not like water except to drink it. Our ASD is a wonderful pet, guardian and companion. We have not lost any geese, ducks, chickens or goats since we bought him two years ago. Very intelligent and funny breed. He loves being out in any weather, heat, rain or cold. He will lay in the shade in the summer and the winter and doesn't mind the rain at all.
