Water bowl to keep face dry

I know there is a thread on this somewhere but I can't find it. I have been able to get Loki's face staining somewhat better but I think the real issue is that his face is wet all the time. He is the sloppiest drinker - he dunks his whole beard in the bowl. He will drink out of his Lixit water bottle but I worry that he won't get enough water just from the bottle. Does anyone know of other solutions for keeping his face dry - he runs when he sees me coming with the paper towel and I am not home all day. Thanks.

No suggestion other than the bottle.

Barbara,

I don't have any other suggestions besides the bottle either, but thought I could help ease your mind regarding its use. My first Hav Apollo had a "drinking problem" he didn't have an "off switch" when presented with a bowl of water. When he was a puppy I went mad trying to housebreak him and spent a ton of money on medical tests until we tried the breeders suggestion of a Lixit bottle. The bottle solved all of his issues and he lived a happy healthy life on it.

I have tried several types of bowls, and this one is the winner!

PRESTIGE ROAD REFRESHER NON-SPILL WATER BOWL - SMALL SIZE
Available on Amazon

I purchased one about a year ago and now have four. I put two bowls out each day and just rotate them.
They are dishwasher safe and still look as good as new a year later.

This is the one we use (same idea as the one cbelknap posted above) They work very well, but are a bit hard to clean because water goes through the handle section too. (which means you need a bottle brush to get in there) I just ordered one of the ones she uses to compare and see which I like better!

UPDATE: I ordered this bowl for Loki. It is a miracle. His face is dry all the time (a saver for my floors and so nice not to get wet kisses). The staining is also fading. I am letting his beard grow but asked the groomer to trim just a tiny bit each time so eventually he should be stain free. Angel Eyes cleared up his eyes so I think we are in the clear. Happy New Year!

That looks like a good bowl. So far I'm ok with Willow drinking out of the water spigot type waterer. I've been using Angel Eyes on her too although it's her beard that shows the most staining. Angel Eyes also has a product out for beard staining. I've been using that for several months now. In fact I'm on my third bottle. I'm pretty sure it's helping. The staining is much lighter and the hair growing out is still white. The only staining that seems to stay is just around her mouth. The stains that were down on her throat and cheeks seem to be gradually going away as she gets trimmed. Keeping my fingers crossed!

Someone mentioned a Lixit bottle - which one do you use?

I don't use the brand Lixit but I have used similar ones. Currently, I'm using this one which I really like https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It took me forever to find something like this one that wasn't too expensive but it is currently unavailable on Amazon.

I've also used this one which attaches to her crate or you can screw it on to a wood holder I think https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

That's the one I just ordered so that's good. I need the one that hooks on the crate right now because it's more for his crate rest period at the moment.
