Golden retriever service dog laying next to a water bowl


Remember, it’s hot out there! It is important to keep yourself hydrated but don’t forget your furry friend! Dogs usually drink 20 to 40 milliliters per pound a day, which translates to a 50 pound dog drinking four to eight cups of water a day! You want your water bowl to be larger than your food dish but when you’re on the go, bring a smaller portable bowl and just refill it a lot or you can buy collapsible bowls that you can easily bring with you! If your dog doesn’t want to drink a good trick is to add ice to it, most dogs will drink the colder water and sometimes they will just take the ice out and eat it, but what they don’t know is that they’re still getting water, we have our tricks too!
