Unhappy Water bowl dumping puppy?

Nina, 6 months, started dumping her water bowl almost as soon as I put new water into it. I have a plastic mat under her bowls that fortunately catches most of the water. Any thoughts as on how to get her to stop? I was also thinking of getting her another bowl that is less dumpable or get a stainless steel bowl that DH sets in concrete. Oh she does not do this with her food which is in an identical bowl.

I use a water bottle with Quincy. He also has a bowl available but he doesn't dump it.

Just change the bowl type. I use a pet water fountain though.

I didn't know there were water bottles for dogs. That might be a good option. The water fountain might be a bit much for her as she is 6 lbs. I also worried about her dumping that or are they full proof? I think a trip to the pet store is in order.

We use heavy ceramic ones with straight sides. I don't remember one of them ever getting turned over.

Not this exact one, but very similar. Ours have smooth glazes so they are easy to clean.

I think a heavy ceramic bowl is your answer!

We use both water bottles and a ceramic bowl. There has been no spilling, although once Momo put the bowl in her mouth and slammed it on the floor when I didn't see that it was empty.

Tom King thank you for the link with the picture. I am going out shopping tonight and will see if there is one in the pet store like it.

We just came back from the pet store and I bought two heavy bowls. Wish me luck. We have all wooden floors and water is no good on that so I need to find a solution.

And how! She doesn't usually drink a whole lot, so, for her to do that, she must have been. I got her message loud and clear.

We are using a purex mixing bowl, Vet suggested it instead of the ceramic bowl I have been using, I like the bottles best but Boo Boo doesn't use them anymore. The heaver bowl should work.
