I have one of those jug/auto refill bowls but it never grows algae... it hasn't even gotten a film- but I do use oxydent or dentafresh or whatever that water additive is.

Do you want your dog to respect you because you demanded it, or because you truly earned it?

We have a deep ceramic bowl, sat in a plastic box, sat on a plastic mat LOL.

For indoors, Orson has one of these:

It's made by Petzone and holds about 4-5 cups of water and gets filled 2 x a day....with breakfast + again with dinner. You can see the bowls go in with that little 'gap' and fit like a puzzle piece. No tipping, spinning or spilling. He still drips though LOL

Outside in the backyard (in his kennel run) he has a 5 gallon bucket.

We have one of the gravity waterers, so the base is easy to wash, and we keep it out if direct sunlight to help prevent algae growth.

We have square Durapet stainless steel bowls in the kitchen.

When we're outside (and not playing with the hose/kiddie pool), I put an ancient (over 20 years old), round stainless steel bowl in the garage. I also keep a ceramic one on the closed in porch during the summer. Water gets refilled as needed.

I had a stainless steel Chum bowl (no splash/spill) for the truck, but it's a royal PITA to clean as well as keep the water level where Caleb can reach it. I bought a Waterboy last fall.

Anyone have any bowls that help with sloppy dogs?

Gwen doesn't drool but she forgets to swallow before leaving her bowl. And licks her lips as she walks towards me. It does me make (more) thankful she isn't slobbery, though

I'm old school. My critters drink out of a ceramic, not THAT ceramic bowl Just a regular old stoneware soup bowl.

I had one of those pet water fountain things, but you have to be really on top of cleaning those apparently. I wasn't and it started making my dog sick - the water *looked* fine, but was growing stuff. Ick! So now it's back to the old fashioned method. I change the water once a day (or more if it needs it) and throw the bowl in the dishwasher every couple of weeks. So much for technology...

The cat and dog share a bowl. I tried to give the cat her own bowl for a while, but she never drank out of it...apparently the dog water tastes better (second only to toilet water...ewww.)

I rinse out my bottle every couple weeks with a bit of bleach, then rinse rinse and rinse it out then let it air dry for good measure. But with the 3 dogs and the 2 cats its emptied ever day-day and a half.

Ummmm.... I'm a "bad" pet owner when it comes to water. We only have a bucket outside that we dump/refill every day.

Revy and Poison are "tankers" they will drink until they burst. Jayne makes a huge mess. So.... they drink when they're outside. They have access to water several times throughout the day, but they don't have 24/7 access.
