Small amounts of water at a time should have no effect on bloat. It's when a dog is gulping down large amounts that you're concerned. Besides, having a dog playing around and exercising a lot, there are a lot more concerning issues I would be concerned about causing by AVOIDING water (heat stroke, dehydration, etc...)

As far as too mixed to bloat? While it's true I've never personally seen a GSD bloat or torse, I did see a GSD/collie mix die of GDV. ANY dog can bloat. Ask your vet to explain the dachshund we saw for a GDV.
