The Best Water and Food Portable Accessories For Dogs

We paid £76.31 for these 6 water and food travel accessories to review.

Whether you are off for an adventure with your dog or doggies, going on holiday, a trek, taking them for their routine dog walk or always like to have water with you just in case one of your furry family get thirsty and/or hungry, there are a whole range of portable food and drink accessories on the market.

We all have different requirements when it comes to choosing portable water and food bowls for our dogs.  For example; How practical are they to carry?  Are they collapsible? Environmentally friendly? Easy to use? Sturdy? Can they realistically be used easily with a dog on a lead in one hand?

Our doggies at Benafim dog shelter, including Pebbles, Alex, Wendy, Mimoso, Puppy, Loki, Odin, Kai, Black Nero and Banjo have done the work for us and helped answer the above questions.

Are you constantly trying to find a suitable and convenient solution to keep your dog hydrated when out and about that can replace a standard plastic container? 

The 6 water and food travel accessories the dogs tested are: Colapz Portable Dog Water Bottle, Matt Saga Portable Pet Water Bottle and Food Container, Pet Room Travel Dog Collapsible Bowls, YUSKO Portable Dog Water Bottle, Baogier Dog Water Bottle and Food Dispense and Road Refresher Prestige Non Spill Pet Water Bowl were all tested by dogs of all shapes and sizes from Benafim Dog Shelter.

Some dogs were more patient than others, some dogs particularly fussy about where they drink their water from (and the type of water they drink – oh yes!) and some who really got into the swing of things and took the testing to a whole new level. 

Tested in many different settings, from the beach to the middle the countryside, let’s see what our doggies thought and which ones will be joining us as we sing: “we’re all going on a summer holiday, no more working for a week or two…..” okay perhaps without the singing!

Colapz Portable Dog Water and Food Bottle

Colapz Portable Dog Water and Food Bottle £8.32

This British designed Colapz Portable Dog Water and food bottle is really easy to use and practical.  Simply fill with water or food push the top back on and off you go.  The bottle is lightweight with a cool design (according to dogs Mimoso and Puppy) and with it’s carabiner clip attaches easily to a lead, a loop in your trousers or will fit nicely into a bag.

A simple and effective design

The bottle holds approximately 570 ml of liquid and the bottle top is wide enough to pour out food as well.  The lid is a simple pull off, push on mechanism whilst the cup for the water and food lifts up from the side of the bottle and over the lid to form the container.  Simple!

The Colapz bottle is also lightweight enough to hold whilst your dog drinks or eats but will also sit firmly on a solid surface should you want to free up your hands.

Another positive for this portable bottle is that any liquid or food your dog doesn’t drink or eat can very easily be returned to the bottle. Simply pick the bottle up, tilt and any left overs will fall back into the bottle.  Fold the cup back against the bottle and off you go.

Matt Saga Portable Pet Water Bottle and Food Container

Matt Saga Portable Pet Water Bottle and Food Container £9.16

With a long strap the Matt Saga portable water bottle and food container is the most practical to carry if you don’t have a bag for yourself and don’t want to clip it to your dog’s lead.  Simply hang on our shoulder or across your body and off you go.

The bottle is made up of a dual chamber bottle, one for water and the other for food. There is even a grid to put over the water chamber so no food spills into it from the other compartment.

The dual purpose bottle stores water and food

Attached to the bottle are two collapsible bowls which can be extended to different sizes.  Patience is required to get the food out of the one side and a lot of shaking is involved.  If you have a hungry dog they may not be very impressed.  This said, the water comes out really easily and only one hand isneeded if you are holding dogs on a lead in the other hand.

Pet Room Travel Dog Collapsible Bowls 

Pet Room Travel Dog Collapsible Bowls – £7.49

These Pet Room collapsible bowls come as a pair and the dogs loved them.  They come in two sizes but what is great is that whichever size you choose small, or medium to large, the bowls can be half extended or fully extended depending on how much food or water you intend to use.

The bowls are really easy to transport as they pack away completely flat and with the carabiners on each bowl, they are easy to attach to your bag, yourslef or a dog’s lead.  As they weigh next to nothing, you will not notice the additional weight.

The bowls can be half extended or fully extended

If you are like us and permanently carry a bottle of water with you for yourself then these bowls are perfect assuming your dog is not too fussy and will drink the same water as you.  Yes, we do know dogs who have a particular penchant for certain brands of water or who will only drink water at room temperature (how the other half live haha).

We love how these come as a pair so one can be used for water and the other for food.  But this is not all, the super exciting part for those who have dogs who also like to play, is that the bowls can also be used as frisbees.  Yes, they can!

Summary

Great value, great design, very easy to use and perfect to take out and about with you as they are so discreet and won’t use up a lot of room in the car or in a bag.  Have we mentioned the bowls can also be used as frisbee’s – we love this about them!

YUSKO Portable Dog Water Bottle

YUSKO Portable Dog Water Bottle £10.19

The Yusko portable dog water bottle is a great, simple, effective design that works very well, even when you are holding the leads of two, maybe three dogs in one hand.

Made up of the main bottle which you fill with water and the lid which is the cup from where your dog will drink.  All you have to do is press the button at the base of the drinking cup and water comes out efficiently and easily.  There is no need to press hard at all.

The Yusko is made up of two components, the water bottle and the dispenser

The portable drinking bottle has a wrist strap which is handy for carrying and if there is any excess water in the drinking cup you simply hold the button down and hold it vertically with no effort at all, the water will go back into the bottle.

The design is very easy to take apart for washing, is no fuss, no frills but really works.

Baogaier Dog Water Bottle and Food Dispenser

Baogaier Dog Water Bottle and Food Dispenser  £13.32

The Baogaier water and food dispenser is like one of those Babushka Russian stacking dolls.  Strange comparison we hear you say? The reason being is that just when you think you have worked out all the different compartments within the bottle, you find another one.  The design seems to have thought of everything you could possible need for your dog when out and about.

All the different components come apart for ease of cleaning

Indeed there is one compartment for water, a smaller one for food, a compartment that contains poop bags and even a poop scoop as well as a C shaped cup which can be used for both water and food.

The bottle has a clip that can be attached to a bag but we found the bottle too long to fit hang comfortably on one of our trouser loops.  There is also a wrist band which you can use to carry it.

This multi functional dispenser carries food, water, has storage for poop bags and a C shaped Cup for food and water

The water is dispensed into the cup by pressing on the button at the top of the bottle.  Just a minor point but if you have a very thirsty and impatient dog be prepared to have to make them wait as the water does take a while to come out and it feels like you really have to press hard to get any result.

If you have any excess water, once you have managed to dispense it, simply hold the button down and the bottle vertically for the water to go back into the bottle.

The Details

Multi functional water and food bottle

500 ml volume

C shaped drinking cup

Large button for dispensing water

Available in 4 colours: Pink, green, yellow and turquoise

Made from ABS environmentally friendly food grade material

The C Cup drinking container is large enough for a big dog like Black Nero

Summary

The Baogaier Dog Water Bottle and Food Dispenser has thought of everything!  This is a really good concept but is fairly cumbersome to walk with and perhaps is better for a day trip in the car where you can leave the bottle.

Road Refresher Prestige Non Spill Pet Water Bowl

Road Refresher Prestige Non Spill Pet Water Bowl £10.60

If you are often out and about in the car with your dog the Road Refresher Prestige non spill bowl is a really good option to keep your dog hydrated.  The bowl holds a large amount of water – up to 1.4 litres – that you can simply fill up in the morning, put the bowl in your car without worrying about any water spilling.

A weighted floating plate allows water to flow up from the large reservoir

The water bowl eliminates spills and reduces pets slobber as the weighted floating plate ensures only a small amount of water at a time reaches the top compartment.  In addition the big black rim ensures any slobber on the floor is kept to a minimum.

Although, this is in an ideal world, when your dog remains over the dog bowl and doesn’t walk away, water still in their mouth (or dripping from it as the case may be).  Kai demonstrates below how drinking water from this bowl should be done!

Available in sizes Small and Large

Large size dimensions: 24.13 x 24.13 x 10.16 cm

Holds approximately 1.4 litres

Floating plate allows water to flow up from the large reservoir

Summary

This is a really clever design that is sturdy and passes the thorough and unique testing style of Pebbles.  Ideal water bowl for the car as it can be filled at the start of a trip and will not spill.
