    DefaultTap water or bottled water for the dogs?

    Just curious, and this might have been posted before. After Sammy got cancer, we decided our boys were going to get bottled water only. I did slack for a little while, but after the recent scare with Frankie, it's back to bottled spring water. I pay $.069 per gallon so it's not a big deal to me at all. It's worth it.

    I give tap. Hawaii has very good tap water, well, Oahu anyway.

    Maui has "junk" water.

    I use tap water, I seen several articles and TV news.. some say all you are doing is buying someone else's tap water. Our water is tested yearly here and I feel confident its OK.

    I guess it depends on the quality of your tap water, the storage you have in your house, the amount of water your dogs drink, how much you go to the grocery store...lots of stuff. The cost is no biggie...

    I would probably use the Pur filter on my tap water just because I don't go to the grocery store that often and hate lugging tons of groceries around. Have a storage issue at my house as well.

    I don't think it's a bad idea, though from what I know most bottled water is city tap water filtered anyway. Can't hurt to minimize whatever factors you think could cause issues with your puppers health as far as I am concerned. If I thought my water was affecting Billie, you bet I'd change it however I could.

    I use tap water also. If we are traveling to a dog show I take water from home for them and if we run out, then I will buy bottled to prevent any changes in their systems.

    I don't trust our water. It tested OK, but we live right on the river and the last flood covered the top of the well.

    We use Tap water but Louisville has some of the best water in the country from what I'm told.

    I use filtered water from the dispenser on my fridge. But Ollie will drink anything...his favorite is toilet water.
    I do it mainly for my own peace of mind.

    We use tap for everything - dogs, us, fishtank, etc. Our town sells our water to Nestle for bottled water, so screw that, I'm not buying bottled when I get it out of my tap.

    My dogs have drunk from dirty ponds and streams every day for years. They get tap water.
