    Question Needed : Hints on keeping Water Bowl fresh

    So I was wondering if anyone can give me a hint or two on how best to keep the Water Bowl / Jug fresh.

    Im currently using one of those 1 gallon water Jugs that mounts on top of the water dish. I fill it with filtered water from my tap.
    Sometimes I freeze it half full so Jack has cold water... I guess I do it as sort of a treat for him although I'm not sure if cold water is a bad thing for dogs...

    My problem is that after Jack drinks from the bowl, its left with slobber and leaves and/or dirt since he is contantly burying his entire face in the grass smelling everything...
    So I end up hosing the bowl , and thus losing must of the filtered water that's left in the gallon jug.

    Im planning now on adding a tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar to his water so Im guessing that'll be getting wasted too ..
    Its cheap so no problem with that, its just the act of having to unscrew the water jug to re-fill it and add more ACV to it just so he can dirty it up again moments later....


    Anyways, I was wondering how you guys do it....

    Ha ha! If you find a solution, let me know! Bubba does the same thing! Such a mess around his bowl and the floor is very difficult to keep clean!

    I use a regular bowl too and change once or twice a day, depending on how thirsty the boys are.

    Carolina pet pantry has those fountain water bowls with filters. High end water bowl for our four legged friends. Water is always moving and being filtered from what I understand. Check out their website.

    I have 1 giant red bowl and under that, a giant red melamine tray and under THAT a big red rug that's for dogs; it's supposed to absorb 200% of its weight or something. AND THERE'S STILL A SLOBBERY MESS! hahahahahaha I gotta wash that dish out and refill a good three times a day and wipe that tray a couple of times anyway. The rug gets scrubbed outside using a pressure washer attachment and lotsa soap...dry in the sun.

    Yeah. In my next life, I wanna come back as one of my dogs.....

    I keep an extra large st.steel bowl outside. Inside the kitchen, I have a total of 3 extra large st.steel water bowels, one in the crated area. and two on either side of the kitchen. all sitting on extra large cookie sheets, They can easily be scrubbed every day and the bowels get filled at least twice daily. It's a job at my house. They all love when I first set down the fresh water. Weekends I fill them even more often. I hate seeing that slime on top of the water, guess I'm anal like that. If I wouldn't want to drink it I don't expect them too. Like I said, anal

    Molly won't even drink out of the bowl if she already slobbered in it. She is a diva sometimes!!!

    We have on common water bowl in the living room that they all drink from and gets changed about 3 to 4 times a day and a bowl in each crate that gets changed at least once a day. So much slobber. haha

    I pick up dump the "lugie" that is leftover, and wash his bowl out with a sponge with a scratch pad on one side 3 times a day. I remember when I first got Vegas I would have to turn my head to dump out his left over slime, it would flat out gag me. Now I think nothing of it. lol
