Water at night

A puppy should have access to water through the night, yes? Puppy will be sleeping in crate beside my bed. What method do you find works best—water bowl in crate? A water bottle?

You can get bowls that clip to the crate or a water bottle. My last Hav Apollo had a “drinking problem” and just over drank water that was in a bowl. After tons of testing to be sure he wasn’t sick he started using a bottle and was fine. I’m considering having Nico try the bottle now, he is fine with a bowl but eliminating the wet chin would be nice. Although hearing the water bottle in the middle of the night would be annoying, they do make a bit of noise.

I don't give mine water after 8 or 9 pm. Never had a problem. I am following a crate training schedule the says no water after 8. They never go looking for it.

Winston doesn't get water at night, either. He doesn't go looking for it until about a half hour after he wakes up in the morning.

if they don't drink overnight with water present then you can get away without putting it out or making it available. by not making it available you run the risk of them developing urinary issues. Dogs don't instinctively know how much to drink, ,its good to "remind" them and have it always available.

I agree. Tux has always had access to water no matter where, or time of day or night. He had a water bottle in his nighttime ex-pen when he was a puppy. Now he usually laps water out of a little bowl right before bed at about 9PM. Since he was about 6-8 months old he was allowed to be loose in our bedroom so he can drink anytime. He sleeps through the night, pees and poos at 8-8:30 AM right after breakfast. He's never had an accident since we got rid of the ex-pen. I read that puppies, especially, can quickly become dehydrated, so I would be more concerned with health than accidents.

Mine have been drinking water later at night, of late. But I did cheek their gums, theirs are fine but mine are sticky. I have water on my night stand now.
