Re: Water while in the crate

If you must give water in the crate (I never have), try a gerbil/ginea pig type water bottle you can clip on the side of the crate.

Re: Water while in the crate

I bought a stainless steel 1 quart bucket from Dog.com. I use a carbineer hook to attach it to the crate. It also has a hook but the carbineer secures it. Ruger loves his water and we leave him 4-5 hours daily so he needs it (or it makes me feel better). I clip it high enough so he has to stand to drink but it does not obstruct his floor space. I hope this helps!

Re: Water while in the crate

I also use the water buckets like Terri describes. I clip it to the crate door with a clip.

Forget a bowl, they would spill it, flip it, swim in it, as soon as I put it down.

Re: Water while in the crate

I have a large crate for Jetta. She has had to go back to sleeping in the crate at night, but HAS to have water for her kidney failure. I use a big heavy ceramic bowl and put it in the corner. Works perfect!

Re: Water while in the crate

I too use a similar set up as Terri for the crates in the vehicle (my dogs aren't crated indoors anymore when we've not home) and they work great.

Re: Water while in the crate

I use a clip-on bowl... I was using one that has a holder which attaches to the crate door and then the bowl comes off the holder to fill it, (like the one the person above me posted) but my newest foster dog learned how to knock the bowl off the holder and spill it all over the crate floor...so I ended up buying a 'locking crate bowl' instead which attaches a little more firmly.

Re: Water while in the crate

If you want to put water in the crate, a bottle is the best way to go.

Try to be the person your dog thinks you are
