So Far So Good

I ordered two of these and so far I'm pleased. I was skeptical when I received them and saw the design because you have to flip the "bowl"off of the bottle and turn it inside out. I wondered how long it would last as you're really torquing on the ring of rubbery material that attaches the bottle to the bowl. After I've used it for a few weeks, I'm convinced that it will hold up. My dog can be a little concerned with new things but she drank out of this right away.

I recently purchased this water bottle and couldn't be happier. I had been searching local pet stores for this type bottle but, no one seems to even know what I am talking about! Now, my dog and I can take long walks and stop when we want for a water break. I have a big dog and she gets thirsty on our walks. I just stop, open the bottle, let the water go into the attatched bowl and my dog has a fresh drink. What ever she doesn't drink simply goes back into the bottle with a simple tilt. I close the bottle up and we are on our way again. I LOVE IT!!!!
Portable Dog Bottles
We keep one in each car. I gave one of mine to our son and DIL for our grandpuppy. These are easier to carry, perfect for summer time walks.
A very good product
Leaks a little, but this bottle is easy to use and my dog has really made good use of it. She gets very overheated after long walks and this product has really saved her.

I ordered this bottle as an extra water bottle for my dog when we go on longer hikes. I liked the widemouth top for ice on those hot days and how easy it was to flip the bowl open and back against the bottle for quick water breaks. The bowl part was kind of tough to flip over at first but I'm guessing it just needs to get worked in so the rubber isn't as tough. I didn't like that the dispenser part would just open so easily. We used the bottles in a dog pack so they were upright and it wasn't an issue if it leaked but if I were to put it in my backpack, I would definitely worry about water spilling out since it pops open pretty easily. I also wish they had this style of bottle in a bigger size since my dog is 60+ lbs. Overall a good buy if you do active things with your dog but beware of spillage if the bottle isn't upright.
The bottle is very handy when walking in the woods. I think the design is good. Unfortunately the execution is not. The bottle leaks through the cap when in horizontal position.
My friends for whom i bought such bottle as well mentioned that it leaks
Gotta have it
I already have one of these bottles and carry it on my daily walk. As the summer gets hotter in AZ I need a second. I have carried this one bottle for 3 summers now and my friends are asking for it!
It was nice to have a water bottle that they could use but it was a little hard getting the rubber to fold over.

The bottle started to leak (from the cap) after a few months. I only fill mine half way now. I once poured very hot water on the bowl part and the plastic kind of melted. Looking for a different one.
Superb, light easy to use container!

Just fill and go! The drinking cup is the perfect size. Dogs can use it easily without any problem.
Lixi water bottle for dogs

It is awkward and leaks. I would not reccommend it.
Good Idea with Problems
It's a neat idea the way the bowl folds out but the nozzle doesn't close securely and it leaks when I put it in my "dog bag".
A great product
Our dog loves to walk, but she really suffers in the heat. This water bottle is terrific. The mouth is wide enough for ice cubes. This keeps the water cold for quite a while on a long walk.
Great idea but it leaks
The nipple and bottle top leaks which is not good for a "travel" water bottle. It takes a little work to flip the bowl into use but doable. The biggest problem that prevents me from using this on a regular basis is the leaking!

Perfect. Just roll the plastic bottle part out and fill up the dish. I like how you can add more water as the dog drinks it. No waste that way. Great product for the money.
Works but another alternative is better
I bought this to replace another drink bottle device I had for my dog with a Gulpy (or similar) name on it that worked quite well for over a year before it started to leak.
To be fair, this bottle works Ok and had I not had the prior similar device perhaps I would like it just fine. This bottle's bowl harder convert from bottle to bowl than my prior one. I am going to get one like I had and this one will probably be found in the back of some cupboard.
I've used the original 16-oz. Lixit Thirsty Dog Water Bowl with the hard plastic cup attached to the end of the lid for several years now (and given half a dozen away to other dog owners, then re-ordered to always have a back-up on hand). It was a great water bottle that never leaked, and you always had a convenient cup available for the dog to drink from when you're away from home. I use a service dog, so the water bottle received daily hard use and the original bottle lasted over 4 years before it got banged up enough to start leaking a little.
Portable Water Bowl
First of all, couldn't get the bottle to open. Had to cut the strap holding the water bottle to be able to fill it or use it. The drinking part of the bottle is so shallow that it cannot be filled up more than half an inch. Tacky quality.

Bought it for my service dog , hangs nicely on the back of my wheelchair. Easy to use but it can be a little messy until you get the hang of it.
Could cause cancer not BPA free

after doing some research, I learned that this "travel" water bottle is not made of BPA free material...
