I left Olives bowl out all day Saturday, Sunday & Monday . Needless to say she was picking up the water bowl and spilling it ALL over. Now, I've been sticking with it because I don't want to be "cruel" like everyone has said, but It's just been a disaster. Basically - it's just not working for us...at least not right now with her little puppy brain. I will try to leave the bowl out for a few more days, but honestly - Even with access to the water - her behavior hasn't changed - She still loves playing in water, lapping at the puddles, trying to drink out of the toliet, and she still pads in the kitchen and wines for ice cubes (and treats). The only thing that is different is she is now peeing in the house (without signs)! If I ask her for water, she looks at me, but if I ask her for Ice cubes she freaks out. I think she's teething, and she likes the cold. I also think she's just being a puppy - and I don't think that by me restricting when she gets her water I'm being cruel - because I know she's getting plenty of water during the day, through her meals/play sessions, So, I guess everyone is different...I mean I will eventually leave the bowl out for her, but right now, she's just a spazz with it. She swims in it - more than she drinks in it.
