Picking Out A Water Bottle For Your Dog
When picking out a water bottle, there are a number of things that you need to keep in mind.
The first thing is how big is your dog?
This is important because you don’t want to get a water bottle that is too small or too big for your pet. You also need to think about where you are going to place the water bottle. If you have a big breed of dog, they need a bigger container so they don’t have to make as many trips to the water source.

Cleaning Your Dog’s Water Bottle
Keeping your pet’s water bottle clean is just as important as making sure they have fresh drinking water. You need to make sure that the container is cleaned on a regular basis so that your dog doesn’t get sick from bacteria or other contaminants that might have gotten in the bottle.
Some people worry about using warm water when cleaning out their dog’s water bottle. If the water in the bottle is warm, let it sit for about thirty minutes so that it can cool down before you pour it out. Remember to never use a soap that has an overpowering smell. You don’t want your dog to get sick from the water because of the smell of the soap.
How Often Should You Clean Your Dog’s Water Bottle?
The general rule of thumb is to clean the dog’s water bottle every two weeks. If your dog is playing outside a lot or you notice that the water in the bottle has a strange smell or color to it, you should clean it every week.
When cleaning the bottle, you need to make sure that you get rid of any residue or buildup that might be at the bottom of the container. The best way to do this is to fill the container with some warm water and a couple of drops of dish soap. Shake the bottle vigorously and then rinse it out with warm water. Leaving any sort of buildup in the container can cause your dog to become sick.
How Much Water Should You Give Your Dog?
How much water a dog should get varies upon their size, weight, activity level, and climate. In general, most dogs will tell you when they are thirsty by licking their lips or walking over to where their water bowl is. If you dog does not do this then you should consider getting them a water bottle.
If you have a small dog that is inside most of the time, like a chihuahua, then it probably won’t need as much water as a working dog like a retriever or other hunting breed. If your dog sleeps a lot, is older, just went to the vet recently or is prone to bladder infections then they will require more trips to provide them with relief. If you live in a hotter climate, then more water will be necessary to keep your dog hydrated.
If you think your dog is becoming dehydrated, there are a few symptoms to look out for. These include:
Loss of skin elasticity
Reduced saliva production
If you see any of these symptoms then it is time to get your pet to a vet as soon as possible.
Remember to make sure that you are providing your dog with the right water bottle, one that they like and one that you are comfortable filling up for them.
Keeping Your Dog Hydrated
Ultimately, it is your duty to make sure that your canine friends are hydrated throughout the day. While they may not complain about being thirsty, they will certainly appreciate the effort you put in to making sure they have a constant supply of fresh water.
And when it comes right down to it, isn’t that really what it’s all about?
Making sure that the ones we love are content and happy.
