Water bowls

Lola digs in her water bowl. All the time! It creates a huge mess. She enjoys it and loves water, so I don't mind too much. But does anyone use a mat under the bowls that would be good for excessive water? The one I'm using doesn't do much.

I always makes sure she has water to drink, but I never leave a full bowl. Usually about 1/4 filled

No water bowl for Hans when he was little.

Get a Waterhog mat! I had the same problem with my puppy. Luckily she grew out of it or realized she can't do that inside. She still will do it outside or at the dog park though.

Wylie did this when he was small. He would stand in it and DIG! sending water everywhere. Since it was summer, we got him a hard sided kiddie pool -- oh! the fun he had -- and we had fun watching. Fortunately, at about 5 months, he outgrew digging in the water bowl. Kinda sad, really. They grow up so fast!

I am going to get her a pool in the summer. We have a creek that my other dog loves, so I'm sure Lola will love it too.

Forget towels- get a nice indoor doormat, doesn't get all messed around like a towel and looks a helluva lot better than a towel

Chum bowl, Buddy Bowl, Neater Feeder will work when they are older & just somewhat sloppy. The youngster, at 4, still digs in a kiddy pool but no longer her water dish...
