Keeping your dog hydrated is essential for his overall health and well-being. While you’re out adventuring it can be easy to forget that your pooch needs water too. A doggy water bottle, like this one from Gold’s Gym, should always be a must on your packing list for walks, hikes, bike rides and even car trips. Water bottles like this are the easiest and most convenient way to give your dog a drink while you’re on the go.
Packing a water bowl and a bottle of water isn’t a bad idea, but it’s not nearly as convenient as a device like this and it takes up a lot more space. If you’re traveling in the car that may not be a big deal, but when you’re walking or hiking you may need all the extra space in your pack that you can get. Not to mention the less weight you have to carry, the better. The Handi-Drink Dog Water Bottle could easily fit in a dog backpack if you want your pooch to carry his own gear.
The water bottle holds 17 ounces of liquid and can be quickly filled via the screw-off top. When you’re ready to give your dog a drink you simply unclip the bottle from the travel bowl, turn it upside down and attach the nozzle of the bottle to the socket at the end of the dish. All you have to do is squeeze the bottle and water will flow into the bowl and your dog can drink as much as he wants.
It’s so much easier than trying to dump water from a bottle so your dog can try to drink it, and it doesn’t waste as much water either.When your pet is finished you just dump out the water he didn’t drink, reattach the bowl to the side of the bottle and you’re good to go. The valve on the bottle is leak-proof, so you won’t have to worry about it dripping in your car or your backpack.
The Handi-Drink bottle is equipped with a durable plastic clip so you can easily attach it to the outside of a backpack or to the extra D-ring that is provided on some leashes. It also comes with a Gold’s Gym lanyard if you’d like to hang it around your neck, although that may be a little heavy on your neck when the bottle is full. This product is available in your choice of black, red or blue.
