Scared of water or just a bath?

I walk Stevie almost every night. One thing I have noticed is that she has a fear of water. She will avoid the side of the sidewalk where someones lawn sprinklers are on. She will walk around a puddle on the sidewalk. She will do her best to avoid any lawn sprinkler anywhere. Last night we walked down to the local park where there is a lake. Much to my surprise, she is really not scared of water when it is on her terms.

All one needs to do is provide a simple experiment. Find a bird in a lake or large body of water.

Once the bird has been found, walk towards the water.

Does the dog go into the water? If the answer is yes, the dog is not scared of water. Just lawn sprinklers and the hose at bath time.
