I don't know if it has any adverse reactions to dogs but SportDog makes a supplement you add to a dogs water which is similar to a gatorade or powerade for humans.

I have heard that electrolyte supplements can cause problems for dogs if taken in excess. It is typical for human and equine athletes to take electrolyte supplements. However, both humans and horses lose electrolytes through sweat which is something that dogs don't do. Given a dogs inability to sweat they cannot readily shed excess electrolytes which can cause problems. I suggest talking with your vet or someone who specializes in canine nutrition.

There's more than one series in field trials? Whoda thunk:)
I should have been more clear. I give it after the first series but before the call backs. :p Now that you mention it, I bet if I didn't give it we would be called back. Also, it is possible I got a bad batch. Chad turned me on to it and Grady and Trav are always going on to the next series, so there must be something wrong with mine.
