Since moving the dogs into the new kennels during the day, they have seemed to do fine and enjoy it. Except, Indy will not drink out of his pail. I change the water frequently, it is fresh and cool. He won't touch it. When he goes outside to train, play or just air, he will drink from the spigot, but after a few gulps he chokes on it a bit and will stop. When we go into the house he will run straight to the toilet and drink his fill, (won't touch the water bowl in the kitchen either). So, in trying to make sure he is hydrated before going out training in the morning, I have been soaking his early feed down with broth. THat does get some liquid in him, but are the benefits offset by the sodium??? What else can I do, anyone else have this problem?
My pup Scout, has no problem drinking out of his pail, even after splashing in it with dirty feet so that he can throw some at Indy. (and he KNOWS about the toilet, but doesn't usually drink out of it.) So nothing wrong with the water.
