Rated 5 out of 5 by Dlf87 Awesome!
My dog loves this! She is usually very slow to drink water and only when she's absolutely dying of thirst. So I figured I'd try something to get her to drink more water and it worked!!!! She loves this thing. It did take her a couple of days to get used to it but some gentle prompting and putting it wherever other water bowl was helped. If you're looking for something 100% silent this isn't it. It makes a light humming noise but it's not invasive or loud even. We unplug it at night because I have no idea how much electricity it uses and she sleeps in our bedroom with the door shut. Also, do yourself a favor and fill up the jig and let it run through the filter for a few hours to rinse the excess charcoal off. I'm sure soaking t would help or rinsing the filter in the sink but one way or another after the first jug we cleaned it out and she's been guzzling water ever since! No more ice cubes to trick her into hydrating.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Leslie It's okay
I have a fountain and I bought this so my three dogs wouldn't drink all of the water out of my fountain and run my pump dry. However, I keep this outside next to fountain and the water gets warm plus my blue heeled has already eaten the cover off and removed the filter and chewed on that too. It's just not going to last with me dogs but maybe older or less destructive dogs would love it. It's just not as appealing to the dogs as my decorative outdoor fountain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KLee1 I love these fountains - This is my 3rd in almost 20 years
I have had these fountains for many years. This is my 3rd and when this one goes I will order another - in about 8 years. (Taking care of they last forever). You have to take the motor out of the bottom and clean that too not just the container and fountain itself. They last and last and has more then enough water for my 2 Goldens & 4 cats for all day if I need to be gone that long. They love the fountain effect and even the male cats will drink from this while standing water just sits. I purchased these other places at twice the cost. So glad Chewy carries them and saves me so much and with 2 day delivery you can't beat it. Thanks for great service and a really great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mimi Provides fresh, running water
Our dogs love this fountain. It keeps them out of the toilet. There's a trick to cleaning it but once you get the hang of it, it's easy.
Get the cleaning brush tool set offered by the Drinkwell company, it's not very expensive and the brushes are made to clean all the nooks and crannies of the fountain. I have all kinds of brushes and dish mops but none clean this fountain as well as the ones made especially for it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by khop leaked right away
Just got my fountain! My pups and I were all excited! Had it plugged in and working for about an hour now and there is a puddle underneath the fountain. I thought maybe my puppies were messy with the water but no it's the fountain leaking. Bummer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trblx3 Great dish
I've only been using this for 2 weeks, but we are happy with the results. We've owned newfoundlands for years and have dumped out bowls of slimy water. This keep the slim away.

Rated 2 out of 5 by mako I wanted to love it, and I did, but....
I have 4 large dogs and 2 cats so this fountain was awesome....while it lasted. I have owned this fountain for less than 6 months, and it is leaking from the bottom. I have taken it apart and cleaned it faithfully, at least every 2-3 days. (I don't want them drinking from water I wouldn't drink from!) A couple of days ago I noticed water going down faster than usual, and the rug underneath soaked. At first I thought it was the dogs being unusually sloppy, (they love to play with water)but soon realized the leak is from where the pump is. We have tried to resolve the problem with teflon tape, but this has not worked. I am truly disappointed, because I really liked this while it worked!!
