Not sure if I should be worried or not Jackson doesn't seem to be drinking very much, apart from this he seems very fit and healthy.

I know now after the chop he is no longer trying to flood very corner of Somerset, could this have any bearing on the matter, or am I'm an over protective dally daddy

So long as he has fresh water available at all times and he pees normally I wouldn't worry. If you want him to drink a little more than add a bit of goats milk to some water and float his food rather than soak it.

All ours Wilf, Katie, Dimmers, Louis and Cuba, have always been not that bothered about water,(perhaps from their north african heritage???) In fact the only time they appeared to take lots of water was when they where ill. When out training and we feel they should have some fluids, we give them red top milk which is fairly close to being water, but they wallop that down until it comes out of their ears if you let them. We're not as rich as Maggi so can't afford goats milk! Laughing Laughing Razz Wink

Thank you Maggi and Tim, I gave him some red top mixed into his water and he has been drinking well so far this morning.

My male can drink 2 liters of water in 1 sitting and constantly goes to his water bowl all day. My girl however drinks once in blue moon. I add water to their meals, and as they are both healthy I don't worry.
