Water Fountain Bowl

I'm looking for a "water fountain" bowl for Rico. Something that makes a noise to help him identify it's location.

Does anyone have a "bubbler" they like?

I have never heard of that before. My pups never seem to lose where it is. In fact Daisy can't wait to play patty cake in it!

I'm not sure what (or why?) you are looking for a “water fountain" bowl for Rico, but if you don't find one for dogs you might check into water features. There are some really cute ones available for different spaces, interior and exterior that you could adapt for your needs.

Can Rico not smell where the water bowl is?

I'm looking for the "fountain" on the advise of other owners of blind dogs. With Rico losing his sight, I'll need to get the water bowl to make noise, a wind chime by the back doggy door and other assorted tips to get him used to smelling and hearing where he is, opposed to seeing the way.

I thought the water fountain bowl was a good one. I friend of mine has one for her cats. It keeps the water fresher as well. A little small for the water my two havs go through though. I'll check online and see what I can come up with.

We saw them @ the Pet Expo. I think Carole picked up some info on them. I'll PM her so she's sure to see this thread

Please post what you find, I've never seen or heard of it.

We had a boxer go blind and she was very comfortable at home. It never occurred to me she could not continue to eat and drink or go out in her yard as normal. Some times I had to guide her around the door opening. On leash in strange areas she would high step like she was feeling her way, but she managed very well.

Sounds encouraging, Sandi. I may be overreacting, but thought I better start making any changes needed now. The water bowl sounded like a natural. Here's a link to what I'm talking about.

Yep, that's one of the ones we saw at Pet Expo. Amazon.com has several models available for $33-$45. A breeder friend has the platinum model for her Havs and really likes it.

My daughter used the drinkwell brand for her cat. The cat really liked it. Alot of cats only want FRESH water and it has a filter to keep the water fresh.

Try not to panic. (I know easier said than done) Chingy has been losing her sight for some time but even when she had a sudden accident and lost it all at once she adjusted within only a couple days. I also had a parrot that went blind. They rely on their other senses much more. They can smell the difference between the kids room, the bathroom, the kitchen. The hear the hum of the refridgerator, the sound of the t.v., the wind chimes on the porch, even traffic on the street. It won't hurt to get a few things, but please try not to worry.

I have a Catit that's a water fountain...whatever brand you purchase make sure you have the electrical cord covered so your dog can't chew on. That's my worry about them.
