|Casey, I think I had posted in one of your other threads about the urinary issues. From my research, standard poodles are one of the breeds that are prone to Juvenile Renal Dysplasia. I don"t want to scare you, and this may not even be what's going on, but really, a urine should be checked and possibly kidney values should be run to make sure there isn't a problem. I have had a JRD puppy, and the sooner you catch the problem the better it is to make your puppy more comfortable.
Even if it isn't the worst case scenario (JRD), if you believe this is an abnormal behavior, I wouldn't hesitate to at least ask the vet about it and see if there's anything you can do. It may be as simple as one of the other posters suggested, that he might just need to go out more frequently since he's a puppy. But losing a pet to JRD makes me hypersensitive to any puppy that is having urinary problems or drinking excessively.
