    Promising review: "All five of my fur babies love this little guy. They took to it immediately, no hesitation at all. Even though they have never had a fountain to drink from before. The pump is whisper quiet and provides a nice flow over the little flower. The filter needed to be rinsed out after a week, but like I said I have five cats, so cat hair is pretty much a season in my house." —The Redhead

    Price: $34.99 (available in two colors)

    2. An Outward Hound Port A Bowl for taking your pup on walks or hikes. This bowl folds flat for easy portability, dries fast so you don't have to stick it in your bag while it's still wet, and is super lightweight!

    Promising review: "I recently adopted a male labradoodle who was used to running five miles every morning with his owner, so I'm doing my best to keep up the exercise since he needs it to stay healthy and happy. We run or bike every single morning. I had been pouring water out of my Camelbak for him to drink but it was wasting water and not a very efficient way to do things so I ordered this bowl and I love it! It collapses down to practically nothing (I store it under the elastic bands on the front of my Camelbak) but can hold a LOT of water! It's great for dogs with big mouths/heads to drink out of, and when they're done, it collapses right back and dries quickly!" —Kate Mahoney

    Price: $4.99.

    3. A Kurgo No-Spill Dog Travel Bowl that'll give your doggo access to water in the car without the chaotic spillage. The tapered lip helps reduce splashing while traveling and keeps kibble ~or~ water off your car floor. Happy pup, happy human. ♡

    Promising review: "I love this thing. I was definitely skeptical but it is sort of miraculous how the water stays in the bowl. (It is even a little tricky to dump the water on purpose because of the design.) I needed a bowl so my pup could have water at all times during a cross country road trip. It doesn't slide around, and didn't spill. He has even stepped on it and it barely splashed. Perfect. Totally recommend." —Siena

    Price: $11.69+ (available in two colors)

    4. A no-drip small animal water bottle in case you have smaller furry friends like bunnies, hamsters or guinea pigs. The no-drip water bottle allows even the most sensitive pets to drink without getting wet or injured.

    Promising review: "Stays on the cage well and DOES NOT LEAK! If your rats chew plastic, these won't work, but mine don't and these are the best water bottles I own." —Katrina Johnson

    Price: $7.99 for two 8.45 oz. bottles

    5. A 2-in-1 portable leak-proof pet bottle so there's no need to bring additional water bottles and a separate bowl. Undrunk water can easily be turned back into the cup so none gets wasted and it's super simple to disassemble and clean for consistent usage!

    Promising review: "This thing is the coolest! I literally tell everyone I know about this thing! It’s perfect for traveling and long walks. My dogs love it! I ended up taking the filter out because it was leaving a black residue in the water. But I put filtered water in there to begin with so it's no big deal. I love that you can put water back in the bottle. This is especially great on car rides because they won’t always finish what water I give them and I have to dispose of it while riding in a car down the highway. Then the bowl is wet and, well, it’s not the most inconvenient thing in the world, but having this makes it all seem so annoying to deal with." —Nicole Buck

    Price: $17.99+ (available in two colors)

    6. An All Fur You pet water bowl that'll keep your pet's water cleaner by limiting the amount of water exposed to the air, floating dust, hair, and dirt. This is also a great option for car travel to avoid excessive spillage.

    Promising review: "Actually works. I was a bit dubious that this would work and would make my dog stop gulping his water so fast he would throw up. But it works. My dog took some time to get used to the new bowl, but now he treats it like any other water bowl, but can't gulp so fast. I like that it stays full longer and that the floating plate gives me an idea of when the water needs to be refilled. Easy enough to clean and setting it up is intuitive. It's a bit big for my Chihuahua but still at a fine height for him to use it." —Kyrra Gelinas

    Price: $15.95 (available in two colors)

    7. A gravity pet food or water station made of durable BPA-free plastic that locks in place to help prevent knock-overs and spills. The bowl will refill on its own based on how much water is left in the reservoir so you can ~finally~ take a break from personally refilling.

    Promising review: "They are very easy to wash and keep clean. The stainless-steel bowl is dishwasher safe. Out of all of the other water reservoirs I previously had purchased, not one of them has come close to the ease of taking care of the PetSafe Healthy Pet Stainless-Steel Bowl Water Station, I found them to be much more difficult to keep clean. Just for an extra idea to help keep stainless-steel spring that releases the water into the bowl clean, I keep a toothbrush by the sink to keep that spring clean." —JDSnook

    Price: $16.99+ (available in three sizes)

    8. A PetSafe Drinkwell Cat and Dog Water Fountain to entice your pet to increase their water intake. The fountain features a free-falling stream and a replaceable carbon water filter that removes bad tastes and odors, keeping water fresh.

    Promising review: "I bought this fountain because we have seven cats and I noticed that a couple of them were not drinking very much water. In addition, I noticed that one of the cats seemed to like drinking from a dripping faucet and another one would sometimes drink from the toilet bowl (yuck!). The unit holds a lot of water. I also put ice cubes in the main bowl during the summer, which the cats love. This has been a successful purchase. The cats love it (and so do the dogs, which is a pain as you have to keep filling it up). It has stopped my cat from drinking from the dripping faucet and the other one from occasionally drinking from the toilet bowl. Also, the two cats that were not drinking so much water have definitely started drinking more. one has become quite enthusiastic about drinking from the top of the fountain." —Barakah

    Price: $34.95 for 168 oz. fountain (also available in sizes 128 oz., 64 oz., and a Platinum LED version)

    9. An Epicka sprout pet fountain, because your furry BFFs deserve a clean and hygienic place to grab some H2O (that'll also look like a cute little houseplant). The triple-action filters ensure clean water which encourages pets to hydrate more often and further reduces the burden on your pet’s kidneys and risks of other diseases as well.,

    Promising review: "This fountain is great. I've tried two other brands previously and this one is on a whole other league! When I say that the motor is absolutely silent, I mean SILENT. The only noise you can hear to know it's still on throughout the day is the running water from the spout. Everything was easy to clean and the instructions were clear with pictures. The light is a pleasant glow and reminiscent of a child's night-light which is perfect for what I needed. The water definitely appears cleaner and less filled with debris compared to other fountains I've had which is impressive with two cats who both have lots of hair to shed despite frequent brushing. I believe the water tastes better as well as this has really been a game-changer to getting my cats to drink more." —Katye

    Price: $25.99

    10. An isyoung cat fountain—a creative way to get your ~cool cats and kittens~ daily water intake on the rise. The noise-canceling cat water dispenser won’t affect your pet’s or your sleep and it's BPA-free!

    Promising review: "I ordered this fountain for our Maine Coon cat. He is very picky about what he drinks out of and prefers moving water. Well, it has become the favorite for two other cats and two small dogs. The foundation works well, is quiet and worth every penny. I have very happy critters that are well hydrated with clean, filtered water." —Carrie M.

    Price: $31.99

    11. A Neater Pet Brands big capacity bowl to hold more water than your pet could ever dream of lapping up. It can contain up to 1.25 gallons of water or food! It features an elevated design and it's big enough if you have multiple pets who want access to water at the same time. There's room for everyone!


    Promising review: "We have two big dogs and needed a water bowl for outside but hadn't found one that would hold enough water. This bowl holds about a gallon and a half and doesn't have to be filled a couple of times a day. We bought the extension legs to have it sit higher. We are thrilled with the bowl and the price was better than expected. The construction is solid and durable. Whether inside or out, this water bowl is perfect for a large dog or multiple dogs." —B. Walters

    Price: $19.99+ (available in four sizes and two colors).

    12. A camping style pet bowl made from stainless-steel that's no-skid and dishwasher safe! This bowl is great because it's rust-resistant so you can use it indoors or outdoors.

    Promising review: "We have a 10-month-old Lab. While camping, one of those plastic water bowls gets knocked over in about three minutes. We bought this and spent four days camping and it didn't get knocked over once. Super sturdy. Probably going to buy another one for her food. Plus it's just cute." —Heather

    Price: $8.99 (available in three sizes and three colors).

    13. A super trendy LeYoMiao water dispenser so your pet can hydrate in ☆ style. ☆ It's made of environmentally friendly, food-grade plastic and features a nonrusted spring to ensure pets' health., Amazon

    Promising review: " I was wondering how this water dispenser would work, and to my surprise it works great. My cats love it. They started drinking from it as soon as I filled it with water. I only filled it half way for the first time, just to see how it would work. Since then I have filled it all the way. After cleaning it only took a few seconds to put together and when my female cat came over she started drinking from it. Her brother also drank from it right after I put it out. My cats have not dropped any water on the floor since they started using this water bowl. I will be using a bottle brush to clean the inside." —K. Sanchez

    Price: $23.99 (available in three colors).

    Remember to keep your pets (especially those big pups) hydrated during these hot summer months!
