We’re barking about… Long Paws

Dog drinking from Union Jack water bottle

Water is the elixir of life and although humans know all about the importance of hydration, it’s even more vital for dogs. Our four-legged friends cannot sweat so tend to dehydrate much quicker than we do.

It doesn’t take much for your dog to work up a thirst, especially if the weather is warm or you’re out walking. That’s why a constant supply of fresh, cool water is key to a happy, healthy pup.

So far, Ernie and I have worked our way through several different types of water bottle, from traditional plastic ones with sports caps to pop-out bottles that pour into a portable trough. Some spill everywhere while others are prone to leaks – but we can’t fault the stainless steel bottles from Long Paws.

The funky bottles have a patented “lick ‘n’ flow” system with a small silver ball at the top of a nozzle. When the bottle is turned upside-down, water is gradually released as your dog licks. This means spillage is kept to a minimum and you can unscrew the cap to make a mini bowl, if need be. The stainless steel body also keeps water cool, whatever the temperature outside.

The leak-proof bottle comes in three sizes – 250ml, 500ml and 750ml – and several different designs. It also has a handy clip that you can fix to your bag or belt when you’re out and about. Ernie is the proud owner of the blue Friend bottle, which has a cute paw, bone and bowl pattern. Prices start from £13.50.

It’s well worth checking out the other Long Paws products, too. The company designs high-performance everyday gear for dogs, such as collars, harnesses, tick removers and more. To find out more, click here.
