I think you can hear an "eh" sound at the end of "hundene", while "hunden" should end with this long slightly "double-n".

But I'm not a native :P

Would "The hounds drink water" also be acceptable?

This should be accepted now. Please report if you encounter any cases where you get an error for translating "hund->hound".
