Do you take your dog's water bowl up at night??

My friend Janice and I are at odds with this! She believes I should take Charlie's water bowl up at a certain time before bed and not let him have it back until morning. She takes her dog's water up at 9-ish at night and he doesn't get it back until 6:30am. She told me I should do this because I ONCE complained that Charlie woke me up at 4:30 to go pee. This was right after his steroid shot, so the vet actually warned me that this might happen. If Charlie weren't potty trained, I might understand this, but the dog has NEVER gone potty in the house and I think it would be sort of cruel to not let him have water if he gets thirsty in the middle of the night. Maybe I'm just spoiling him though. hehehe

So, what's the consensus here!?

My boys have fresh water 24/7 in their bowls plus two "other" bowls that they use on occasion.

Their water bowls are down 24 hours a day. I haven't restricted late night water access since Sam was a small puppy.

If the dog is working on house training I will pick up the water, but otherwise it stays down.

I don't put Lady's water bowl up for the night. Even at only 1 year of age... she knows that when it is bed time - it is sleep time - not potty time. She does, however, become my alarm clock at 7am, but it doesn't bother me... it helps me. I need to get up at 7 anyway... oh well, annoying on weekends, but I love her.

Enzo has 3 water bowls throughout the house, one out in the back yard, then three other "bowls", just like the ones that Oakly and Caue use. One of those 3 bowls is in the bedroom, right next to Enzo's doggy bed and his crate. It is left there all night for him. It has been since it started getting warmer outside. This hasn't been an issue for us.

We have three water bowls around the house (upstairs, downstairs, and the downstairs one the dogs share with the cat). They are on the floor 24/7.

Thank you! Charlie seems to know how to limit himself at night and when he's crated so that he doesn't drink a ton and then have to pee in an hour. He seems to realize that it's gonna be a while before he can go out so he better not drink too much!

Timber gets water whenever he wants - especially with the temperatures we've been having!!!
I think I've created a monster though - I've always given him water from our water cooler so now he will turn his nose up at water that's sat in his dish - he likes his water cold!!! Preferably with ice cubes!
Now I've always said a girl's gotta have her standards
I guess the boy's gotta have their's too!!!!
