    Default drinking water for dogs

    Is the water safe for dogs to drink out of the tap? Or do I need to get bottled water for my dog?

    i'm not sure about out of the tap, but i've seen quite a few dogs that seem to survive here on water out of the toilet.

    I only give my dogs bottled water, cheaper then visits at the vet.

    My guys were brought up on tap water but if they hadn't been born here, I wouldn't have taken the risk...

    It probably depends where your tap water comes from. You can have it tested.

    My dogs drink from the pool, no matter how much tap water or bottled water I put out for them. They have been doing this for 7 years and they are fine.

    I have always given my dog tap water and she has been fine with it, so was the dog I had before her. I do have a well and so the water might be purer.

    As others have mentioned it all depends on if your dog was raised here. Many dogs on my street drink from the dirty puddles in the street and have no problems and are healthy. But considering that bottled water is so cheap then why not give your "best friend" the extra luxury of purer water?

    Default tap water

    i brought my dog from canada at the age of 4, he drinks either tap water or pool water and has not had any issues with it at all. Our 4 month old puppy also drinks tap water with not problems to date
