Frequently Asked Questions
Do dogs need water bottles?
Not all dogs need water bottles, but having a water source with you on long walks, trips or outings on hot days is a good idea. Look for a design that will be easy to carry and easy to dispense—designs with nozzles or integrated bowls work well and are compact enough to carry anywhere you go. Some even feature a flat design and clips that let you fasten them to your dog’s harness so you don’t have to carry them. Whatever water bottle you choose, your dog will be happy to have a fresh source of water and staying hydrated will keep him extra peppy and healthy.
How do you use portable dog water bottles?
Most portable dog water bottles are used by squeezing or pouring the water into a bowl for the dog to drink from. Most styles come with the bowl attached or integrated into the top for easy filling, and many feature a compact and easy to use design. Some bottles use a nozzle design instead that lets dogs drink directly from the bottle, and some of these can be mounted for use in crates, too. Cage-mounted nozzle bottles should always be used in crates during travel to help prevent spills and leaks.
Are dog water bottles dishwasher-safe?
Many dog water bottles are dishwasher safe for easy cleaning and sanitizing, but check the specs before you buy. Some water bottles, especially bladder styles and very lightweight bottles, will need to be hand-washed instead. The OllyDog OllyBottle Portable Dog Water Bottle is both dishwasher-safe and BPA-free and features an integrated water bowl that snaps right onto the side.
