I have to really work with this to get it to not leak out of the top threads of the hose bib. Tried on three different bibs thinking it was specific to the first one but it leaks on all three. Once you unscrew and re-tighten several times it works without leaking. Tried new washers to see if that helped but it didn't. For now, it is not leaking. Just gotta get my dog to get used to it enough to lick it so he can drink from it! He seems to be warming up to "the new contraption".
This goes on the outside faucet and your dog has to kind of move the lever with their tongue or chin while they are drinking. It took my dog a couple of days to figure out, because she thought we had to be outside holding the lever open for her to drink. We put some peanut butter on the lever and went inside (did this 3x) so she could figure it out without us. Definitely recommend!
Best idea ever my dogs get fresh water always no stagnant water bowls that can cause parasites into their body
I am SO happy with this product! She only had to have us demonstrate it a few times, and now whenever we come back from a walk she runs over to it and takes a few drinks. It’s so much less disgusting than leaving a water bowl out all the time, and it’s a crowd pleaser when she does it in front of people who’ve never seen it before. She’s a taller dog, so she’s the perfect height
I love this thing! The faucet attachment makes my life so much easier. Not only is the mosquito issue gone, but I no longer have to empty and clean Oakleys water bucket every few days.
I bought 7 of these for my Giant Schnauzer puppies families so they could continue to use them at their new homes. I made a "diaper bag" for the puppies and put one in each. They came super fast in the mail!! I love these and I have them on two sides of my house for my girl, the mom.
Bought this to provide an “always ready” water source for when the whole family is busy in the yard. My 80lb Lab usually drinks from the garden house so this was an obvious choice. However, the water pressure is too low from this device and he was not interested. Additionally, he is quite energetic and the all metal design made me worry about chipped teeth. If you have a small dog or a lazy drinker, get this. If you have a horse/bunny in dogs clothing, I cannot recommend.
Fabulous product. It took about two minutes to hook it up and train both dogs. I turned on the water, tapped the end and they started licking! My dogs are outside a lot when the weather is nice. Having the Lixit means they can easily get a drink whenever they need one - without having to go back into the house.
We've been using Lixit's for about 10 years for water access for our dogs when outside. These are not intuitive for the dogs to use, they have to be taught how to use them. However once they learn they will use them all the time and you will no longer have to fill and clean water bowls. The easiest way to teach them is to press on down on the end and let them see the water flowing out. They should start licking. It may take a few tries but it's worth it.
Would highly recommend getting this if you are getting tired of (or consistent at) filling your dogs water bowl. We got it because we go on trips often where we can’t bring our dog. He absolutely loves it, he actually prefers to drink out of this over his bowl even when we freshly fill it up. It took about a week to train him to use it, so just be patient. Just follow the directions and it will work! It’s also great quality, can’t imagine I’d ever need to buy another one.
