Rated 5 out of 5 by Valentine Love these bowls
I've used these bowls for years (non-filtered) with dogs in the past so when I got my German Shepherd/Husky mix and noticed I was having to fill her standard bowl way too often I knew I needed another solution. I bought the 1 gallon for her because she's an inside dog and only 7 months right now. The bowl is a little small but thanks to her narrow little nose she can get it in there no problem and helps control how fast she drinks. The filter is great and remains secure as long as you follow the instructions and having a lid that screws onto the top of the jug before you place it back in the reservoir is a great change and makes it easy to use. I will definitely be getting her a larger size if needed once she's mature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by oblio1984 Good Simple Product
I bought this in the 1 gallon size for my medium-sized dog, and it works very well. It's a little heavy and awkward when full, so I imagine the larger sizes would be difficult to work with. It didn't bother me because my village has excellent water, so I don't care if my dog's water is filtered, but DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT if you need filtered water for your pet. It is impossible for the filter to stay where it needs to be given the design of this product, and it's therefore impossible to get filtered water.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ballbabies Don't waste your money
I bought this for the simple fact that my dog wouldn't be able to make a mess with his water. It is true that he can't do that, but he also can't get enough water out of it to drink. The plastic lid that covers the bottle comes down so low in the bowl, I believe it hinders water from coming out at all. We are lucky to get maybe 2" of water to come out at a time. Last night when I walked by and checked it, there wasn't any at all. The bottle was completely full, but there was none in the bowl. What a joke!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by HOUCoog Great! Not dishwasher safe!
Pretty handy if your dog drinks a lot! However you do need to be coordinated to make sure you don't spill water when refilling. After filling the water canister keep it spout up and place the empty base on top. Then flip over the entire unit. It'll give you the least amount of drip-age.
However I totally obliterated the water canister when I put it in the dishwasher. Not sure what I was thinking! The base was fine, so I'll keep it as a backup.
Great until the dishwasher snafu. Replaced it with another Petmate water dispenser.
