With summer here and the heat, well, heating up, one question that may arise for people is, “How much water should my dog drink?”
This is a great question, and one that we will consider in today’s article. The first thing we ought to understand is this: Our dogs are a lot smarter than us. So the chances of them over drinking like we do is not a real problem for them. Dogs are going to drink when they feel thirsty, and they are not going to drink when they are not thirsty.
It is pretty much as simple as that. Now, with the heat picking up in the next few months you may notice your dog drinking more than usual. Is this a problem? No, not at all.
One thing that you may want to think about, though, is keeping your dog’s water bowl filled with fresh water. Now, this is regardless of whether the whether is hot or not. Our dogs water bowls should always be fresh. So here’s an idea you may want to try: freshen your dogs bowl of water twice a day. You can do this once in the morning and once in the afternoon.
