About water

Hi

I have a question. Should I leave my pet's/children water down at all times? I have the cutest Toy Poodle, and a Teacup Maltipoo, but they are not quite potty trained yet, so they piddle quite often.

I leave water down for them all day, but because of the accidents, I'm wondering if I should take the water up like I do the food.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

FYI Due to my age, and ailments, I'm trying to house train them.

They should have access to water at all times. Just remember that puppies need to go out every hour to two hours. Personally I don't give my 10 year old lab water past about 10 pm because he's getting older and he's had a few accidents but during the day they always have access to water.

Yes. They should have access to water at ALL TIMES.

If they are piddling take them out more often.

What are their ages? Puppies can't hold pee too long with their young bladder and they definitely need water.

I always make sure my puppy has fresh water.

How old are your pups? When Kitsune was younger he had to pee soo many times a day - puppy bladders arn't fully grown yet and can't hold as much. Now that he's almost 6 months old he doesn't have to go out nearly as much.

Some don't leave water out at night to keep piddling under control.

Keep fresh water available all day, but pick it up about 2 hours before bedtime.

Best way to avoid accidents is by heavy supervision and frequent potty breaks. Don't know how old your dogs are, but my 11 week old pup is going out about every 30-60 minutes (but she's also very good at going to the door when she needs to go out).
