No, the opposite as far as the boys are concerned, they do not drink much water at all.   Ruby does drink, but not alot, I would say she goes to the water bowl twice a day on average.  I board one dog and she is back and forth to the water bowl all day long, there is nothing medically wrong with her but she will empty a full water dish through the course of a day.

   Delta drinks more from the water dish than Sterling does. Both of them will drink if it is from a bottle, running water from the faucet, outdoor hose, or refrigerator door dispenser.   The water bowl is a last place option for Sterling.    He may drink as much or more than Delta that we don't see. They have a water fountain outside that they can use anytime.

Dre drinks off and on all day long....his and the cats bucket is about 1 1/2 gallons and I have to fill it everyday. Plus I eat a lot of ice and every time I get a glass of ice he wants some too.

My Bailey drinks from the kiddie pool and hose alot and a small share from his bowels through out the day. He always has the access to it.

Rosie will drink occasionally, but let the water dish be empty and she will drag it all over the house and cry until someone fills it. Then she just walks away. Also if Peanut is at the water dish, Rosie has to make sure that she gets her share. Neither Peanut or Rosie go near the bowl if Maggie is there...she may be the smallest in the house...but she is the queen! LOL Also both Maggie and Rosie prefer the water bowl outside then the one inside...not sure why....

The General drinks more than Maggie.  I would say he drinks a half gallon or more a day.
