When we took Teddy to France in the summer, I bought him a plastic water bottle with trough attached. It worked well for that trip, but three months later it leaves a small reservoir in the bottom of my bag. So I was pleased to find the H204K9 water bottle for dogs. Made from stainless steel, it has an ergonomically designed, toxin-free Polypropylene lid that is built for a dog to drink from. It has a screw tight closure, a neat carabiner clip, it’s 100% recyclable and all-round smart. Looks great, but does it leak? Apparently not. I’ve been reassured by Paul Taylor of PJ Pet Products, seller of thousands of the bottles, that they won’t leak. So, because Teddy isn’t that much of a drinker, I chose the small, 9.5oz bottle, £9.99. It’s a very neat size and so far, so good.
