how to make a dog auto water feeder

How to Make a Dog Auto Water Feeder

Nowadays we all have pampered pooches, and mine is no different. The summers temperatures here can get very hot and at times as high as 45 degrees Celsius. The high temperatures can make a small amount of water in their water bowl very hot. They also drink more in the summer and for some reason, they will not drink out of the second bowl I put down. I always felt really bad when I came home from work and they had no water. My idea was that I would freeze bottles of water to put in the dispenser. And in the morning before I go to work I would put one into the dispenser. And as the level goes down the water will be topped up with the cold water from the melted ice. Nothing is too much work for my pampered pooches.
