The average dog needs between 1/2 ounce to 1 ounce of water per pound of body weight in a given day.

If your puppy weighs 20 pounds, for instance, he'd need between 10 and 20 ounces of water for the day to stay hydrated.

Most dogs will automatically hydrate to the correct amount, though some may over- or under drink.

I say the majority, because we don’t recommend you put a bowl of water into their crate with them. Puppies should never be crated in the day for long enough to need a drink. A new 8 week old puppy might spend up to an hour at a time napping in her crate once she’s used to it. And she won’t need water in there with her while she’s asleep.

Generally, young puppies need about one-half cup of water every two hours. You'll want to monitor your puppy to make sure he's drinking enough . . . and not too much. Older puppies that have already been weaned generally need between one half ounce and one ounce of water per pound of body weight per day.

Puppies Should Drink Half A Cup of Water Every Two Hours As a general rule, you should make sure that younger puppies that have been weaned get about a half a cup of water every two hours or so. The water should be fresh, and not left sitting in their bowl all day.

How much water should a puppy drink? There actually is a standard daily amount of water that we expect any healthy dog to consume. Generally, a pup should consume somewhere between 60 to 90 milliliters per kilogram per day. To translate this into practical amounts, remember that a kilogram is 2.2 pounds, and a cup is about 240 milliliters.

The amount of water a dog should drink per day is dependent on his size. The general rule is that dogs drink 20 to 40 ml of water per pound of body weight per day. This comes out to about 3 to 4 cups of water for a 20-pound dog. Below is a table with more details based on size.

As a rough guideline, normal water intake for a dog is around an ounce per pound (50 mL per kg) of body weight per day. That means that a 65-pound (30 kg) Labrador would drink approximately half a gallon (1.5 liters) of water per day. But every dog is different, so it’s important to know what is normal for your dog rather than dogs in general.

A good rule of thumb is a ratio of five minutes exercise per month of age (up to twice a day) until the puppy is fully grown, i.e.

15 minutes (up to twice a day) when three months old, 20 minutes when four months old etc.

Once they are fully grown, they can go out for much longer.
