What can I make for my dog's water bowls to keep water contained?


After recently adopting two bully puppies, I had no idea what a lovely mess they could make with just drinking water. I've thought about something like the water bottles for a crate, but larger and also a device that can be made to place them in? Any thoughts or ideas anyone? -

    Try Pet Smart-they have piglet bottles that come with a spring that will attach to the crate.

  • You didn't research first? Wait till they grow up. Are you aware how big they will get and how strong they are? You might need a custom crate or enclosure. They are just darling, and are a lot of work. Very active dogs. Are you ready for the challenge? They love to skateboard, surf, etc. I would use farm feeders for them. In the summer they have spigot watering devices that are way cool.

    Leave your toilet seats up 😂😂😂😂. No? Ok, put a bath rug under the water bowls. They’re puppies and Bull dogs. Deal with it.

    Bully for you!!! Get a play pen for pups, hook it to the kennel, and secure it so they can’t push it over. Keep the water bowl outside of their kennel.

    With my four Rottweilers. I keep a microfiber mop near the water bowl. My floors are mopped several time a day. LOL....

    We had a lot of trouble with this when we had our old boxer. You could put the water bowl inside of a small tub of some kind, like a small litter box. We did that for awhile and it helped. We found a dish at pet smart that has a reservoir under it to catch water, it made a huge difference. Have never kept our dogs in a crate, so I don't know if there is a small enough tub for that. Hope this helps.

    I bought a feeder that stands off floor from pet smart. It seems to help with spills and lapping with long tongue.
