Stainless-steel dog water bottle has two openings: the small one up top has a ball-bearing to control water flow when you hold the bottle upside-down for Dog to drink (think hamster water bottle and you’re on the right track). The second opening is larger to allow for filling and cleaning. You can also unscrew the whole top of the bottle, flip it over – and it’s a cup!
- Stainless steel construction
- 16 FL-ounce Ball bearing water control for drinking and large opening for filling
- Fits most standard cup holders
- Comes with a handy carabiner for easy carrying.

I’ve never seen or heard of a product like this before. If you follow my blog you probably know by now that my dog goes almost everywhere with me. Everytime he gets home he goes straight to his water bowl and laps up all his water. Sometimes he drinks so quick that it comes back up and all over my floor. He will do this even if its only a 5-minute ride. So I worry about longer rides and often pour out a bottle of water really slow for him to try to drink. When I saw this bottle on Dog Is Good’s website, I thought it was clever. It’s just what my dog and I need. Now I can make him drink slower so that he doesn’t get sick on my floors.
The 16 fluid ounce bottle is stainless steel and keeps the water cold. when you screw off the black cap and turn the bottle upside down, you will see a stainless steel ball. When your dog licks the ball it moves the ball and it allows water to pour out. Like it says above, think hamster water bottle and you’re on the right track.
It took my dog maybe 5 minutes to figure out what I was trying to get him to do. I would make the water bottle dribble some water out by holding it sideways (it moves the wall slightly and allows a small amount of water to come out). He would lick it up off the floor and he would see the water dripping down so he knew it was coming from someplace. He finally figured it out and starting licking away at the ball on the bottle. A few drops hit the floor but mostly it all went into his belly. If you’re outside this wouldn’t matter, but if you’re in a car, you don’t want that kinda mess on your seats. When I take him with me he now knows what this bottle is all about.
You have to hold the bottle above the dogs head. If your dog doesn’t take to the ball, you can always take off the top part of the bottle (blue) and use that as a water cup/bowl. The bottle is easy to clean and it fits in car cup holders. They’ve thought of everything!
Here is another product I really like from Dog Is Good. This 24 fluid ounce stainless steel tumbler is perfect for ice cold drinks or your morning coffee. This tumbler will even fit in your car cup holder. I haven’t used it for anything hot. I’m a cold drink kinda gal. This tumbler keeps my drinks nice and cold for hours.
At home you can feel good about placing it anywhere, no coaster needed. It’s double wall vacuum insulated and doesn’t sweat.
The top stays on with friction and seals 100%. It has a mouthpiece that you can open and close. This bottle is not spill-proof, liquids will come out of the top of the mug, around the mouth slider and vent holes if it’s tipped or dropped.
I love the bright metallic color.
