Ok...Need water bowl help!

I have tried several things to stop 2 of my GSD's from flipping over their water bowl. I have dug a pit and buried in pretty deep so they couldn't flip it. It lasted about 3 days before they realized they could just splash all the water out and then somehow pry it up out of the ground. I went and got a large pale and filled it up hoping the weight would stop them and again they got it emptied and then flipped it over. I also got some concrete screws and drilled down thru the bottom of the pale to secure it to the concrete, that's right, no luck. They just kept on messsing with it till they tore it up and was able to rip it out of the screws. Help, its not that I really care for them flipping it, but now thats its getting warmer I don't want them going the day without water. Any ideas?

yeah , you and me both.Attach buckets to the fence and they pull until the wire distorts and off comes the bucket . Then the toss and roll the thing around. Water is paddled out within minutes . One of the ladies showed a kennel set up . I caught sight that her buckets had a loop and clip ? Anyway I thought it looked great. Hope she reads this and answers .

HaHa, that's the exact one I got at TSC, Emoore, they had it turned over in less than 20 mins while I was showering!

Your dog must be related to Ruger....the water monster from ****....I got a water dish/container. Dont know how to discribe it . It has a 5 gallon conainer like ozarka comes in. with a water dish attatched at the botto. 25.oo at tractor supply. It is keeping him from turning it over but it really gets ucky in the bottom. I cant lift the darn thing but hubby can. So far it works and my little dogs can get water also. He is the worse when he sees water anywhere he dumps it. I tried the pail, big bowls and its the only thing that works. good luck...

yeah I've done the 28 gallon tub and the dog sat in it .
I've even thought of inventing a system where the water containing vessel is on the outside with just a tray on the inside to drink from - like an elaborate bird waterer .

hmmm...depending on your kennel setup, what if you put the bucket on the outside of the kennel, attached to the fence so they can't flip it, and remove a small section of kennel so they can stick their heads through for a drink?

Mine aren't in a kennel. They are loose in the fenced back yard.

Well, in that case, you could perhaps build something that contains the water bucket, but has an opening for their head to get in to get water.

How about one of those bottles that they drink out of like hamsters? But bigger? They also have those adapters that attach to the faucet that kind of turn it into the same thing?
