Your dogs daily water routine

I thought I'd post this because I've been wondering what your watering routines are, and, though I’m slow on the uptake, I see water has been a topic recently.

I’m particularly curious if any of you use additives in your dog's water, like plaque prevention or electrolytes.

No additives, just keep his bowl and bottle always filled. He'll drink water at random times, and sometimes he'll go to his crate for the bottle, sometimes he'll drink from his bowl--I have no clue what causes him to want one more than the other.

Lottie & Libby have access to water all day from many sources including
1) The swamp in the laundry
2) The water bowl in the laundry
3) The bucket in the dog pen area
4) The bucket 6 metres away from the bucket in the dog pen area
5) The swamp on Grandma's porch
6) The water bowl on Grandma's porch
7) The bucket in the veggie garden
8) The bucket in the orchard
9) The trough in the cow paddock
10) The bucket in the sheep paddock
11) The trough in the chicken pen

+ various yicky puddles which may or may not actually be animals wees.
We don't add anything to the dog's water, but they aren't sporting dogs or anything- If I had a dog that was competing I would get the tasty electrolyte water. If it's hot Libby will wake my sister up and go out for a drink in the middle of the night... the price you pay for sleeping head first under the covers I guess! Lottie will sometimes go out for a drink in the middle of the night if it's really hot in the house, say if the fire has been on.

My two Pyrs have water available pretty much the same as Discowhore's dogs. They actually have a water tub FOR them, but they rarely use it. I think they like the taste of the slobber in the horse/cow trough and the poop that invariably ends up in the chickens' water. :rolleyes: Besides, they're out and about all day and night, so they drink where they can find it, I guess.

The inside dogs have a water pan (a dishpan) that they drink out of. Thank God they don't drink out of the toilet anymore. One of our old dogs who died a couple years back would ONLY drink out of the toilet, and the rest thought that was a pretty cool thing, so they all did. At least it made me keep the toilet clean! LOL!

I put down "faucet water" but it's from a deep well, so it's pure, not like city water. I LOVE our water!

Our dogs have a giant tub (30 gallons? 40 gallons? More? Unsure! It was a drink cooler bucket for BBQ events) on the deck, a large bowl in the kitchen, and each have water in their crates. If the bowl isn't large enough for Logan to stick his entire face into the water he doesn't want to have anything to do with it. We also have a small pond/spring/hole/thing in the yard where they try to drink but I always have to watch them to assure they don't.

Our house water is already filtered with our little attachments and devices. The outside water is faucet water from the hose.

I tried putting AquaFresh into their water as well as a C.E.T. variety and they wont touch it with it in there. Even a drop sends everyone running like it's tainted... so I just keep brushing their teeth instead.

I forgot about all the other water sources there are! My dogs get horse trough water, cat bowl water, stream water and puddle water (disgusting!)

And yes… there’s the toilet bowl water. Always there, always cold and always smells like family!

What are these "swamps" you speak of? I can envision a swamp in a laundry room, but on Grandma's poorch? Is Grandma leaky?

The swamp is from Lottie's inability to swallow the last mouthful of water, so she walks away and seems to spit half the bowl of water onto the ground surrounding the water bowl... maybe she is in a rush to be somewhere? lol

We have a 5 gallon pail on the porch and another one in the kitchen, but Willie prefers the water in the pool, so Annie drinks from the pails, and Willie drinks the pool.

I know Niz has had water recently when there's strings/puddles of drool/water I slip in.

Due to Potty Training, Dresden gets water from 6am to 8pm; he goes to bed at 10. When he's older and has better bladder control, he will have water down all the time.

Available at all times, changed several times a day (it grosses me out to see spit bubbles in it), filtered out of the faucet.

Hi, Sweetie,

'Swamp' must mean something in Christ Church that it doesn't here.

What exactly is a laundry swamp.

Love,
Kate and Bella

Bella has three places around the house and yard, where water is available and I only change it once a day.

One bowl next to her food bowl in the kitchen. One out on the deck and one on the front porch.....wouldn't want the poor thing to have to walk ALLLLL the way around the house to the deck, should her little cutikins get thirsty in the front yard.

Luci has water in her bowl at all times and it gets changed frequently, she also gets ice during the summer.

No additives. Water available 24/7. Filtered faucet water.

I know I want a drink when im thirsty. And my girl will have water whenever she wants a drink.

We sucked it up (no pun intended) when she was a puppy and dealt with taking her for frequent potty breaks.Now that she is an adult it is not an issue.

I cannot fathom the idea of willingly withholding water from your dog. I dont care what the reasoning. It is cruel.

Edited to add:
I change it frequently throughout the day. After playing, heavy exercise it gets frothy and full of grass, muck, etc. Fresh water for my sweetie all day long!

I didn't realize it was a multi-option poll, for whatever reason. But we refill our dogs' bowls whenever they need it (though outside they have both a kiddy pool and a bucket full of water, just in case it gets hot) inside, and we use filtered water inside and faucet water outside.


If we make a choice to be the voice for those who won't speak up for themselves, how many lives would be saved, changed, rearranged?

My dogs have fresh tap water in the house but often prefer the mud puddles outside!!! LOL Our tap water is yummy and fresh here, no need for bottled or filtered water.

Our Lab has access to water 24/7. Maiya does not have access to water during the night while she is in her crate. I encourage her to drink right before she goes up to bed. She does have access to water at all other times. For years we provided our other dogs w/water from the faucet (well water). But since we brought Maiya home, we now fill 2 5-gallon water jugs with Chicago/Lake Michigan water (which, we believe, is much better than our well water) for the dogs.

Access all the time with Facet water, that has been in the fridge... So its ice cold and in the summer time, or really hot days I throw the ice cubes in there it makes him happy, and my floors really soaked...

Nothing added to water...
