Portable Dog water bottles: Are they right for your pet ?
If you and your pet like to take long walks and there is no clean water around what do you do ?
Well you could buy a portable dog water bottle. No matter which brand you buy, they all serve their purpose of keeping your pet hydrated. However most portable dog water bottles have flaws. For starters they normally can hold from 12 up to 20 oz of water. So if your dog likes to drink a lot during long walks you´ll run out of water before the walk is over.
I use one of these portable dog water bottles and my dog likes to take walks of up to two hours long. I usually end up without water in less than an hour so I have to hurry back home.
You could carry with you an additional water bottle, but it not be practical to carry more stuff around.
The second and maybe the biggest downside of most portable dog water dispensers is the fact that the drinking tray is way to narrow as you can see on the picture above.
My dog has a hard time putting her tongue in there to get a drink of water.
So if you are like me and my dog, and like to take long walks you are better off with a collapsible bowl like the Kyjen Outward Hound 48 Ounce Port a Bowl . This pawsome portable bowl is much bigger and your dog will have no problems drinking from it. What about the water you ask? Well I reccomend you get a good old fashioned cantine.
Don´t forget to always have your dogs on a leash.. Yes even while they are drinking water.
Hope these tips helped .
