I totally agree that testing for a UTI is a good idea.
My GSD is the only animal I've ever owned that I have had to encourage to drink water, even though he always has access.
It is like it is an afterthought for him.
"Oh, yeah, now that you mention it, I guess I am really thirsty"!

But often he is so eager to go and do things, he'll pass the bowl right up until he's reminded.

So sometimes his urine has an orangish tint to it because he is somewhat dehydrated. It smells pretty strong as well.

Hopefully, that is what is going on with yours as well, but it wouldn't hurt to check things out to be safe.
