Essential Info

Keep dogs happy and healthy by providing them with a guaranteed source of cool water. It's easily done with the WaterDog, an easy and convenient system that installs on any outdoor spigot and supplies dogs with fresh, clean water on demand. Once hooked up, the WaterDog's ultrasonic sensors will automatically turn the flow of water on and off based on the dog's proximity. You'll never have to worry about forgetting to fill Scruffy's bowl again!

Note: Hose manufacturers do not recommend drinking from the hose because most hoses are connected to non-potable water. Some hoses have filters built in but it would be a good idea to check your hose filter before hooking it up to this water bowl.

  • More Info

    The WaterDog uses sonar technology to sense the presence of an object in a cone shaped area in front of its sensors. It's important to note that the sensors don't detect motion, but presence. That is, if your dog is present in this active cone area, moving or not, the WaterDog will turn on its water supply.

    Maintaining an adequate supply of cool water should be a priority for pet owners, especially during the summer and winter, as pets will often not drink sun-heated or frozen water, increasing the risk of dehydration. WaterDog provides the solution by giving instant access to fresh water from which pets can drink until satiated. In addition, WaterDog can also significantly reduce the risk of contracting intestinal diseases, such as Giardia, which can be caused by dogs drinking from stagnant water contaminated by parasites or bacteria.

    The WaterDog also includes a flood protection feature. Should your dog stay in the unit's active area for longer than 5 minutes, the water will shut off and remain off until the dog leaves the active area. This feature will protect your yard or kennel from flooding.

    The WaterDog is easy to install anywhere there is a spigot hook-up. No tools are needed. The unit is 14" high when assembled and uses 4 C batteries (sold separately), which will last about a year based on 15 drinks a day at 30 seconds per drink. An additional hose flow-through allows a garden hose to be hooked to WaterDog.

    Leaking a little bit. Great for the dog.
    Rusty -- Northern California   11/28/2012
    My Saint Bernard was totally spoiled by this dog water fountain. The first one I bought lasted about two years, and the rainy winter finally killed it, so I bought a seond one, and only used the second one in summer, and it lasted about 5 years of daily use.
    KATIE AND MAISY -- massillon, OH   2/20/2012
    Wasn't sure what to expect when ordering or how well it would work but it's wonderful and my dogs absolutely love it!
    VICTOR -- las vegas, NV   6/20/2008
    Very cool device and great for my two dogs. There is a bit of getting used to the water action for the dogs but other than that it is a great product.
    SHERRYE -- cumming, GA   5/28/2007
    Save us many trips to the water hose!
    SUE -- woodinville, WA   4/21/2007
    I think this is a great product but my dogs think otherwise. I guess it will take a while for them to get used to it. :--)
    RALPH R -- hermitage, PA   11/11/2006

    Not only does my dog love this device but every dog in the neighborhood that passes my house love it too.
    JOSEPH -- irving, TX   7/17/2005
    Greatest invention since sliced bread! All the dogs in the neighborhood use the device located in my front yard. I have sold at least 5 of these units to neighbors, and plan to buy another one myself.
