How much water?

I was wondering how much water a 10wk old GSD male puppy should be drinking. We have a constant waterer for our other dogs and they use it fine. We had to move it because our GSD would do nothing but drink water, and pee about every 5 min. now we water him after food, after play, and after naps. Anybody have a guess on how many cups of water they allow their dogs?

Oliver is 10 weeks today... I have a self watering system with a 2.5 gallon reservoir. I clean it and refill it every Sunday. There is probably like 3/4 to 1/2 gallon remaining when I clean it...

He is welcome to grab a drink anytime and I also make sure he gets a drink before going outside and after coming in. I also recently started to add warm water to his kibble.

Howdy from Idaho!

I would not limit water unless it is an hour or 2 before bed and an hour before you leave the puppy alone.

The puppy should have as much water as he wants.
