Wanted: Doggy Water Bottle

***Update as of September 11th, 2012.  We bought a new water bottle!  See our choice here***

We are in need of a good doggy water bottle!

We started with the Hand-Drink Instant Dog Drinker that we bought at Petsmart.  However, this product is really lousy.  I usually carry it in my bag while walking Athena and it ALWAYS leaks!  It's also not easy to get the bottle to stand up in the drink bowl like the picture shows.  We don't really use this anymore because it's more of a hassle than a convenience.
Now we have moved on to using the very fancy plastic water bottle as demonstrated below.  B has mastered the technique of pouring a gentle stream of water into Athena's mouth...however whenever Athena sees me whip out the bottle she turns her head.  I think she knows that I'm not very good at it and she's likely to be splashed all over the face with water instead of getting any in her mouth.
B's perfect pouring action
So, we are looking for a good dog water bottle to take on walks with us.  Here are a few that we are considering:

Dog Is Good Water Bottle $19.99
This water bottle is BPA-free, stainless-steel, and has two openings: the small one on top is ball-bearing which allows you to hold the water bottle upside down and the dog's tounge moves the ball to get water out (like a hamster water bottle) and one large opening for filling and cleaning.
OllyDog OllyBottle $13.00
This BPA-free bottle is also a detachable bowl.  The separate bottle and bowl allows for the owner and the dog to drink from the same bottle without sharing slobber!
H2O4K9 Stainless Steel Dog Bottle & Bowl $14.99
Made from recycled materials and BPA-free, this stainless steel bottle comes with a lid that doubles as a dog drinking bowl.  The cool thing about this bottle is that you can also buy a Neosling ($9.99) to carry the bottle on walks, because really, I never know where to put the water bottle!

Orrrrr....should we go the collapsible bowl route?

Ruffwear Quencher $14.95
This collapsible bowl comes in three different sizes and is easy to fold up and carry while out and about on walks.
What do you use on your walks to keep your dog hydrated?

  1. We go the collapsable bowl route, but I've been envious of a couple of people on our SociaBulls walks who use the water bottles. I'm not quite sure what one they use.

    1. I just still can't decide what to get! We might have to get a collapsable bowl AND a fancy doggy water bottle =) As for now, I have actually mastered the plastic water bottle pour and Athena is no longer afraid of me when I hold up the bottle because I don't get it all over her face any more! However, I would like us to move in the eco-friendly direction for bringing water on our walks, so I'm still on the hunt for a reusable bottle!
