    Hey all, New to the forum, but not to dogs, specially very large breeds. I am new to Huskies however and was wondering about their water intake. Background - I had a 12 month old Neapolitan Mastiff, a wonderful dog. We used to feed them chicken frames and dry food, which they loved. All 3 dogs (different large breeds) would drink a lot after their meals and I thought nothing of it. Then one morning when I was ready to go to work the Neo was missing, we lived on 3 acres so that was not unusual. But when I called and he did not come I became worried he had escaped (not the first time), but it was not long before I found him in one of the gardens. At some stage during the night he must have passed away, of course this was devastating to our family. I have no concrete evidence to know how he died or what caused it. There were no physical signs other than a very huge 'bloated' belly. Fast Forward - We have a 3 month old Husky named Koko, he is just wonderful. However I note he drinks a LOT of water. Mind you we are in Thailand and it is very hot and humid so he may well need a lot of water but after my previous experience I don't want to wake up and find the same result, if that makes sense. PS. Before anyone asks why they would have such a breed in Thailand, I do not know, but I do know there are a lot of them here. I figure we would be able to take care of him as well as anyone else, we do have fans, ice blocks and aircon when required

    Ours is a real pain when washing I normally just drop her off at the groomer and let them deal with her. Last time I was there I stayed and just let her luck a frozen peanut butter Kong which eased the noise and fuss. I liken the noise to a dying seagull [emoji23] Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app

    Welcome people always think it's cruel here in Australia to have a husky because it can be quite hot but they manage and mine comes from a long line of huskies bred here. Generally if they drink too much they just vomit so without running pathology tests on the deceased dog you wouldn't know for sure. As for the husky drinking lots it could be from food intake which is high in sodium. Ours at times will drink a lot at one time or at the park would drink more water than other similarly active dogs Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app

    My boy Darwin will always go and stand in the kids paddling pool when we get back from a walk. All quite normal.

    Whenever our long haired husky gets hot - he puts his feet into the drinking bowl - been doing it since he was a pup and never got out of the habit. I just got a bigger drinking bowl for outside and put ice into it on the rare occasions it gets too hot here.

    I could be wrong but I don’t think a dog can have too much water, they must have access to water at all times. He is probably too hot, what are you feeding him? Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

    Luna is 6 1/2 months and she’s been a very cuddly dog from when we got her at 6 weeks. Although it is when she wants to cuddle lol. And o must say when I leave her to go to work my boyfriend says she howls for me and I get the loveliest greeting when I come home. She’s very clingy with me but every husky is different. Guess Luna isn’t the typical husky from the above comments.

    I'm starting to feel like kofu won't enjoy it half as much when he gets older after reading all this 😂

    Only the German gets bathed as she's the only one to acquire a certain...... fragrance! 😀 The others, never but if they get really muddy we very, very occasionally will hose them down

    Aw, Kofu is adorable! Rumo (76 lbs) is too big and grouchy for us to carry/wrestle into a tub! And our shower stall is too small to have room to work on a dog. So, When weather is warm and sunny, we loop his leash around the wooden deck railing and clip him on. Then, hook up long garden hose to kitchen sink faucet,, running warm water, and feed the hose out to deck. Then wet him down, soap and rinse. He gives a few huge SHAKES, and we let him dry out on his own. We only wash when he starts to smell REALLY doggy ( rare ). I bribe him to be brushed, by giving chest/tummy rubs in between every few minutes of brushing. 😀
