Kimberly Alt

Kimberly received her Bachelor of Arts in multimedia journalism from Simpson College. She has been writing about dogs since 2014, covering subjects such as dog insurance, training, health, accessories and more. Her natural curiosity helps her research as she seeks the truth when learning about, comparing and personally testing canine products and services. With every piece she writes, her goal is to help our readers find the best fit for their unique needs.

Kimberly grew up in a family that loved Labrador Retrievers and remembers running and playing in the yard with them as a child. In 2017, she and her husband adopted their Coonhound mix, Sally, from a local shelter. Kimberly's research was put to good use since Sally faced some aggression issues with other dogs and needed some training to be an inside dog. She worked daily with Sally and sought help from professionals to help Sally become the happy pup she is today.

One of Kimberly's favorite pastimes is spoiling Sally with new toys, comfy beds and yummy treats (she even makes homemade goodies for her). She tries to purchase the safest products for Sally and knows that each canine has their own specific likes and dislikes. Kimberly is passionate about dogs, and knows the bond between humans and canines is like no other.

Best Dog Water Bottle: No Waste, No Mess & No Bowl Required

You’re out for a walk and take a break to give your dog some water. You’re probably one of two people. If you’re the first person, you uncap your shared water, attempt to form a bowl with your hands and try to get him to drink as much of it as possible before it all drips through the cracks. If you’re the second person, you’re lugging around a bowl with you, pour some water into it, and she drinks about half of it resulting in you tossing the remainder. An easier alternative would be to bring your dog its own water bottle with a bowl built in. Your dog will drink more water and less will go on the ground. No wasted water, no mess and no extra bowl needed…
