When you're taking your dog for a walk and there's a communal water bowl outside the neighborhood coffee shop, have you ever wondered if it was safe for your pet to take a drink? According to the American Kennel Club, if your dog is healthy, it should be just fine. The AKC says most canine diseases are passed through coughing, sneezing and other ways not involving a dog's mouth. Just be sure the water looks fresh and clean before he laps it up.
