i think you are correct, that is to leave water out and let her drink when she is thirsty.
she may get hot in taiwan, so if shes panting a lot she probably would benefit from some water.
better to have her get water when she feels the need instead of trying to schedule it like her food. although if she is to be inside for a long time you could limit her intake to a reasonable amount, and not let her drink too much, or yes, she will pee more. but water is important for her digestion and body temp regulation.
my dogs eat twice a day, one big meal and one small meal. they drink water at least 6 to 10 times per day though, and i never know when or how much or why they decide. they just drink when they are thirsty. your dog shouldnt have to suffer to keep your tiles and wife happy. your puppy has needs, and they should come before the needs of your floor.
she is a husky, they are smart. she will figure it out quite quickly that when she needs to go, she goes outside.
i dont know about pee, but ive heard a puppy should be able to hold it depending on their age. this is something i read somewhere, dont quote me please, its only a guideline: but i believe the age in months is the same number of hours you can leave your dog alone and they should be able to hold it in:
2 month old puppies should be good for 2 hours
3 month old puppies should be good for 3 hours, etc.
so theoretically a one year old dog should be able to hold it for 12 hours, but that should never have to be the case. no dog should have to hold it for 12 hours or be expected to. its only a guideline for new puppies when you are training them to go outside.
anyway, give your girl all the water she needs. i would only say, if she’s drinking like a fish right before bed (my husky does this sometimes then pees upstairs-rarely but it happens) you might limit her intake. my boy is 7 years old, and sometimes he still sneaks upstairs to pee even if i let him out at 9 or 10 pm.
good luck, huskies are great dogs.
