hey everyone!
hope you all have had a great week!

how much water do you give your basset?

ive been feeding twice a day, once in the morning (6ish) and once in the afternoon (7ish)! while feeding, i give her water!
sometimes, she goes straight for the food, as fast as she can! other times, shes checking out her food, then heading straight to the water bowl and stays there for awhile!

im just wondering if she needs more water? or not!

thanks in advance!

Water is available all the time..........Now my question is, is it a pup your asking about? I noticed your sig with pup and crate.

If it's a pup your crate training, I keep water available when out of crate....make sure goes potty outside before re-crating. At a certain time in evening, I remove water to ensure not a full stomach on water before crating at night.

If it's an adult, I keep water available.

Hi everyone..
I new to this forum and hope you all are enjoying fall season. I have 11 months old male Basset Hound and I love him. Can anyone tell me how much water do you give your basset? Well, I give him water twice a day, once in the morning (6am) and once in the afternoon (7pm) while feeding him. Just wondering if he needs more water or not? Looking forward to hear from your side.

Thanks a lot..

We don't provide water for ours at night when they are gated in the hallway, but all other times.

When they were real little and would sometimes pee at night we would pick up the water an hour or so before gating them, and of course take them out right before gating.

our little girl is going on 4 months and we leave water out whenever she's out. She doesn't drink a lot though and I'm worried she's not drinking enough. We pick it up about an hour before bed and if we're leaving somewhere where she'll be crated.

If you are leaving the water out and she knows where it is, she will get enough water :) Being a youngin, pull water 1 hour before bedtime.
