Slobber stopper

Anyone tried the Slobber Stopper water bowl? Just got it in the mail and tested it out on Sophie. It's quite big, only comes in one size, but it works fine for her.

Her beard was already wet when I set the bowl down so can't say for sure yet how dry it will keep her. But she absolutely loves it wish I had my video handy she drank and drank and drank (she was not thirsty just had her breakfast which has a lot of water in it and has a full water bowl she rarely drinks out of) but she thought it was tons of fun to lap with her tongue down in that hole to get the water.

Then she'd shove her face in the hole and push down as hard as she could trying to reach the bottom with her nose. Then of course, being Sophie, she tried to pry the lid off with her teeth and paws so she could take off with it lol. (unsuccessful attempt).

I do wish it were stainless steel instead of plastic but hoping this will work well for keeping her beard drier (a small weapon in the arsenal of trying to get a hold of the itchy issue).

Anyone else tried this or something similar?

I need one! Kippers always takes a drink and walk away with her mouth full of water, and leaves a wet trail all across the kitchen floor. I think she does this on purpose hoping the cat will ship when she tries to jump up on a the chair. I'll check out the bowl, thank you

LOL that is so funny I wouldn't put it past a havanese plotting to slip up a kitty!
I am hoping this works for them. Sophie is going to be very hydrated...she laps and laps just because it's fun

Interesting... Tucker has a water bottle which he loves. He prefers it to a bowl, and there is no wet beard.

Sheri do you mean like a lixit like for rabbits etc? Sophie has one in her crate in the van but I haven't seen her use it yet.

Dee Dee - my concern about the Slobber Stopper water bowl is that it is made of plastic. Plastic bowls are highly porous, easily scratched, and prone to developing cracks and crevices that can harbor unhealthy bacteria for your pup.

I need to try something like this. Raffi even manages to get water under the mat his bowl is on. His beard is always wet.

Yes I was concerned about the plastic too but it is very thick and hard. You can't bend it with your bare hands. It would also be hard for Sophie to make a tooth mark in it (she's already chewed on the edges and I don't see evidence of it). I do wish it were stainless steel. I will be watching it for wear and tear. Hoping it will hold up and also wish they would make a smaller one. Fingers crossed on all counts!

Plus my main concern with her is her itchies so if it does break down which am hoping it will not (it won't be moved etc so shouldn't get beat up very easily) at least I will be able to see if something like this will help make a difference for her.

Yes, Dee Dee, but it isn't rabbit sized. It is glass, with a larger tube for drinking. Tucker will drink out of bowls, but as soon as we get home he heads straight to the water bottle to get a good drink. My brother made this stand for me.

That is a fantastic idea! Do you think he takes in as much water as he would if he were drinking from a bowl? Does it take him longer to drink it? That would be better yet than the slobber stopper.
