When you go for a hike or plan an afternoon at the park, you probably take a bottle of water. Doesn’t it make sense to bring water for your dog, too? If you think it’s a hassle to tote around a bowl and a jug of water--and who doesn’t?--you’ll appreciate having a Drinkwell Hydro-Go on your next trip.
Hydro-Go! is an all-in-one water bowl and canteen that is easy to tote, use and keep clean. Each Hyro-Go! has an adjustable strap that is about four feet long but can be as small as about two feet long. This makes it super versatile, allowing you to sling the canteen over your shoulder or wear it around your waist by unclipping one of the plastic side clips and re-clipping once the strap is properly fitted around you. The side clips also swivel to prevent the strap from getting tangled up.
36 ounces of water can be kept in the canteen with an opening wide enough to add ice cubes on hot summer days. When you flip the bowl out on its hinges, just pull the plug on the top of the screw-off cap and allow the bowl to fill. The bowl itself will hold 12 ounces of water, but if your four-legged walking parter doesn’t drink it all, it’s easily funneled back into the canteen.
If you will be traveling, you can also detach the water bowl from the canteen. Now, just fill it with water and flip the canteen over for another bowl that you can fill with dog food. Or use the water bowl for your dog and the canteen for you.
If all that isn’t enough, the Hydro-Go! is top-rack dishwasher safe. Simply remove the strap and lid, and detach the bowl from the canteen. Now, the bowl and canteen can be placed into the dishwasher so it’s nice and clean for your next outing. The Hydo-Go! is amazingly versatile. Once you get one you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it.
