Have you looked into the refillable Platypus bottles? They work great, and since they're so flexible and lightweight they fit well in the packs without a lot of bulk. I bring one for the dog and one for me (you'd probably want to start with the .5 liter size, I use the 1 liter), and I fill mine up about 1/3 full and leave it in the freezer, then fill it up the rest of the way before walks. It can get warm, especially if we're going out for a couple of miles up and down rolling hills, and it's really nice to have some cold refreshing water.
