Default Allowing the dog to drink water during training

I have heard several times recently, by different trainers, the importance of stopping training (or working) at some point and allowing the dog to relax and drink water.

Besides the obvious, to hydrate the dog, is there any specific reason for this? Does it help the dog to 'set' in it's brain what it is learning?
