Kayto drinks out his bowl and spills everywhere, walks away and drips all over the place! I place mats under the bowl but he seems to still defeat the mat.

Ridley is VERY sloppy. He gets huge mouthfuls of water and then walks around letting it drain all over the floor. He discovered the endless water bowls (toilets) within a day or two of when we brought him home and while it was kind of funny for a while, I've finally resorted to keeping the lid down on all but one that is in a decent location for controlling where the water goes. We keep a water bucket in the basement but neither dog uses it unless we are in the basement.

I have found that if I use a deep stock pot for the water with only a couple of inches that the high sides will minimize the splashing on the floor.

Abby never drips, don't know why, same with my last dog who was a mutt... both very neat. My brother's little 7 pound Havanese leaves a trail across the room.

If she doesn't drip, are you sure your Abby is really a GSD? I thought splashing gallons of water while drinking was in the breed standard.:laugh::gsdbeggin:

Gideon is horrible with drinking. He just lets the water fall out of his mouth as he walks away. I always tell him that I wonder if I got a st. Bernard or a GSD with the way he drinks.

Well my Abby certainly conforms to that standard. Our kitchen always
look like the aftermath of a Tsunami...

Oh my goodness; I'm glad I'm not the only one that has a sloppy drinker lol! She is so bad! I put a towel down and it did nothing to help, really. The worst is when she takes a drink, realizes that she's dripping, and shakes her head so it goes EVERYWHERE! lol Oh well guess it just means I get to mop more frequently ;)
