How do I know?

How do I know if my 3 year old is dehydrated? He's not potty-trained. He's had 2 wet (lightly) diapers today.

Can you tell if it's darker than normal? Is he drinking anything?

Drinking very little. Can't tell color in his pullup diapers

Has it just been today? If it goes on a couple more days, call the doctor.

He's been sick, but today he started refusing to drink much at all.

Will he eat an ice pop? That always seems to work for me.

Try to get your little one to drink pedialyte(sp?) or Gatorade. If he is dehydrated that will be good for him.

My son has a sensory disorder...he won't eat anything frozen (including ice cream).

I'd get in liquids any way I could - foods with high water content count as well: http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/features/wonders-of-water
