1. A dog with a diet that consists mostly of dry food requires more water than a dog whose diet is comprised of wet or raw food.

2. Dogs prefer cold water.

3. Snow is not a suitable supplement to water.  Ditto for salt water.

4. A healthy (but not overzealous) appetite for water can be an indicator of health, as it is directly related to kidney wellness.

5.  Dogs drink out of the toilet because: the porcelain naturally cools the water, the flushing keeps water “fresh” (so to speak) and oxygenated, and the water’s relatively clean.   Note: We do not recommend this.  The toilet can be filled with both bacteria and toxins from cleaning solutions.
