drinking water
by: Paddy's mom

Tap water sometimes isn't all that palatable. Try letting the water sit out overnight. Dogs, love drinking natural water, running in a stream or dirty laying in a puddle! While I do not recommend the puddle, you can simulate the sound of a stream, and help your puppy get into the habit of drinking water, by trickling the water into the water bowl. Paddy LOVES it. He's a year old and I still do it for him, some. He loves lapping the water from the tub, well, from my hands too. He likes ice cubes, and I give them to him, small ones a couple of times a day. They say ice isn't a good thing, because of the cold, but I tend to think the liquid and chomping is awfully fun for him, and with that small amount it is fine. I hope this helps! I am sure trickling will...
