You’re out for a walk and take a break to give your dog some water. You’re probably one of two people. 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. Your dog is lucky to get a teaspoon of water.
Or you lug around a bowl with you, pour some water into it, and your pup drinks about half of it, resulting in you tossing the remainder because drinking your dog’s backwash isn’t really what you consider a refreshing drink.
An easier alternative would be to bring a water bottle for dogs 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.
This dog water bottle is the only one in our reviews made of stainless steel. It also has the largest capacity at 24oz. The silicone leaf folds up and around the water bottle to form a bowl for your dog to drink from when he’s thirsty. When your dog’s finished, the water funnels back into the bottle and you can flip the leaf down.
It has a 1-year, 100% money-back guarantee, so if you’re dissatisfied, you can get a replacement or a refund.
This bottle is designed similarly to Tuff Pupper, except that it’s plastic. What kept it out of our #1 spot? The excess water can’t return to the bottle, and the bottle isn’t dishwasher safe. It’s still an excellent option because it works with other bottles and is reasonably priced.
This Highwave bottle is a similar design to the popular Aqua Dog Travel Water Bottle. However, we opted to include this one instead because the Aqua Dog has limited availability for purchase.
The Highwave can hold up to 20oz of water, and any leftover water returns to the bottle rather than wasting it.
To use this device, you must apply constant pressure to the bottle for the water to fill the bowl. So, if you have difficulty squeezing a bottle, you may want to select a different product.

We didn’t include this bottle in our comparison table because its purpose is different from other water bottles in this article. This Lixit bottle mounts on the inside or outside of a crate. If you don’t want to mount it, you could purchase a water bottle stand.
The bottle is available in multiple sizes so that you can select the best one according to your dog’s stature. If your dog is notorious for flipping its water dish over, this is a good option.
LumoLeaf is almost identical to Perpets (our #2 pick) except this 20oz bottle may not be lead-free, and it doesn’t have a satisfaction guarantee. On the positive side, both the bottle and silicone are dishwasher safe, so if you want an easier clean-up, you may opt for this one.
This is the smallest bottle in this article, holding only 12oz of water, which may be good or bad depending on how compact of a bottle you want. None of it is dishwasher safe, so you’ll need to hand wash it all.
Its design is different than the others in this article. When you hold the bottle horizontally and press the button, water dispenses into the bowl. The bowl doesn’t fold up like the leaf designs for other bottles.
