Dogs need water and the larger the dog and the the more active a dog is will determine the amount a dog's drinks water. Sometimes it can be a sign of a deeper health issue such as diabetes or diet issues.

If it is excessive and out of the ordinary, talk to a vet. I have had two dogs with sudden excessive water drinking and both had serious medical problems that caused it. One had kidney stones. The other had cushings, a serious hormonal imbalance.

Pets are like humans, excessive water intake could be a sign of diabetes or something more serious. However, climate and activity levels will impact how much water your dog may require.
