Thank you for your recommendation. As I posted I got ceramic bowls. You think I should still consider going to stainless steel because of benefits? The ceramic ones seem to work well in preventing water dumping and they are kind of cute.

I've been looking for a water bottle that I can attach to the outside of Indy's crate. I've found all sorts of styles for small rodents and just a few that are labeled for "dogs" but I was hoping to get some ideas from anyone who's used them.

Do you have any favorites? Dislikes? Would a bottle labeled for a "rabbit" work for a Hav?

It's also important that it attaches to the outside of the crate. I know we'll be traveling and I want Indy to have access to water without it spilling all over his blankets.

Thank you!

If I was to use ceramic I would get a stoneware one. Earthenware isn't fired as hot and can crazing that may cause bacteria. Or just be sure to check the bowl. I use my feasta ware for their food. The other issue is older ceramics can have lead in them. If you see red in an older pot it more than likely is lead. I was a pottery major in collage and ran a company for over 15 years.

Interesting to see how many of our puppies are doing the same. Cora has a ceramic bowl, quite a heavy one, yet he manages to turn it upside down. He also has a stainless steal water - food combo, on a stand. He leaves the water bowl alone, but takes out the food bowl and brings it to the living room, in front of us, when he wants more.

Bama likes to dig in her water bowl, but I don't l know if she has ever flipped it over. Sometimes we wonder if she was trying to cool off, sometimes we thought maybe she was playing.

Yea! I vote on a heavier bowl. Maybe he doesn't like the color of the bowl, maybe he can't tell there is water in the bowl...that is why he is knocking it over to find out.
