Water
by: Donna

In my reading, it all depends on the dog's activity level, size, age and the weather, but in general, an average dog needs to drink about 1/2 oz. to 1 oz. of water per 10 pounds is my understanding so for 100 lb dog it would be about 3.5 cups a day.

If you know your dog well, you will know how much they usually drink. If it's hot out, they drink more, if it's cold, less. If you have snow in the winter, some prefer to eat the snow as hydration.

If she is drinking more than she normally does, and hence, having to go pee in the middle of the night consistently, and pee during the day more than normal, you need to see a vet.

Fresh Water Available
by: Jean Lodge

I have multiple dogs so I can't suggest an amount daily. I do leave bowls of clean water outside, in my kitchen, and in my bathroom that is next to my bedroom, available at all times.

My suggestion is if you feel that your dog is drinking too much, or barely at all, see your vet.

If you are fostering or adopting a Pyr, the Pyr may want to drink huge amounts of water upon arrival. If that is the case, only provide a moderate amount at first. Increase slowly and if the dog is drinking too much, then see your vet who can determine if the dog has diabetes or some other reason for drinking too much.
