I used to have refill my 3 dogs' bowl twice a day, now I only have to fill it twice a week. It takes care of the dirt and slobber my GSD gets all in it after he's done playing, which is awesome! I thought it would be difficult to clean but it is actually quite easy, and the noise the fountain makes is rather relaxing.

We previously owned the smaller version of the Drinkwell and after 6 or 7 years it was wearing out, so we replaced it with the larger version for our dogs. They are very happy with it and so are we.

I have only been using the fountain for a couple of weeks but it's great so far. My four rescue Goldens love it! It's very easy to clean with a little soap, a wipe and a rinse and the filter really does eliminate all the dog hair and whatnot that finds its way into the dish.
Three of my dogs were comfortable using it right away and the fourth took just a few tries over a couple of hours to get used to it. Maybe it's my imagination, but I do think that my dogs are drinking more water and that's good!
The little pump does hum just a little tiny bit but it's not noisy. The hum isn't a problem for me and the fountain does have a nice waterfall sound.
Set up was easy. The fountain does have a large footprint and the power cord is about 3 feet long, so take that into account.
Love the service and the price from Chewy.com! From now on,Chewy will be the first place I look for dog stuff.

This is my third Drinkwell fountain. I bought the original years ago for my cat who had UTI issues. That eventually wore out and I replaced it with the Platinum. I still have that one, but we recently adopted a dog, and it was too small to accommodate a large dog, let alone a cat. I bought the Big Dog fountain for the dog mostly but both he and the cat use it. They both use it without a problem. It's not too noisy and I think the big one is actually easier to take apart and clean than the Platinum. I do wish that the Big Dog was available in Stainless Steel or Ceramic as after awhile plastic can get calcium build up that is difficult to clean even with vinegar.

First Big Dog Fountain lasted 11 years. Replacement from Chewy.com was here in a matter of days. We have 2 Labs, 1 German shepherd, and 2 cats. That means refilling the 2.25 gal reservoir every 1 - 2 days. Without the big reservoir filling a water bowl would be a full time job. This pet watering system provides a value to effort ratio of 100 to 1. If you have even one large dog you owe it to yourself and the animal(s).

Worth its money from chewy.com I had first bought it at a pet store. I bought it for 85 dollars and it was missing a part so returned that one. Bought it online and filters and a spare tank for my cats fountain for 20 dollars less then the first fountain cost.
Works amazingly I have to fill it once a day with my dog. I used to fill his bowl 3-5 times a day before. I have cleaned it once so far and it was fast and simple to clean. Very glad I bought the fountain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Officegal Love the sound of the fountain and my dog loves it too!
I have this in my office where I work at home. It works for me and my dog! It is a nice soothing fountain for me and my dog loves the fresh water. It also keeps me from having to fill her bowl twice a day. Easy to clean once a week!
