So far it's working very well for us. We bought this for our chocolate lab pup, and my wife is happy that she can leave her in her kennel. And when she returns, the kennel is still dry. Our pup is only 10 weeks old, but already she is very destructive and has broken other waterers, but the Buddy Bowl has stopped her in her tracks.

"Worked good. Unfortunately, my dog will not drink out of it."
I have used Buddy Bowls for years. Wanted one for travel and one for home. They are the best water bowls. You just leave the water in it when traveling, and it does not spill out. Buddy Bowls are GREAT!

Mine needs replaced, as the Dane tried to open it after he drank the last of the water, so it is nibbled on the sides, and won't seal anymore. So no more upside down no spill capability, whereas before you could turn it upside down, and it wouldn't spill. Great for the Golden Doodles mop face, as now he doesn't dunk his whole muzzle into a bowl and soak it, and then spread a water trail across the house. Our house and our dog are so much cleaner.

"I am a dog trainer, and hold weekly 'Puppy Socials'. Pups often try to put their feet in water bowls, but they don't try (as much) with these."
These are great bowls. I am a dog trainer, and hold weekly 'Puppy Socials'. Pups often try to put their feet in water bowls, but they don't try (as much) with these. If they do succeed, or even knock the bowl over (only once that I've seen), they are non-spill and hold a lot of water. Only issue I've had is that after 6 years of use, the lip that allows the top to come off easier started to crack. Still works, doesn't leak, and I have several of these bowls. Great product!

"My Wirehair's beard still gets wet, but it's way better than her regular water dish."
My 10 month old puppy picked it up by the tab on the edge and just tossed it around. It held the water for a short time, but eventually it all came out all over the floor. It might work for some dogs, but not for mine. What really sucked was that because my boy damaged the tab with teeth marks, I couldn't even return it after a one day trial.
Thanks for your note. It's dangerous to leave anything plastic with a dog who likes to chew.

How the Buddy Bowl works:
The Buddy Bowl is made of three tough molded polycarbonate plastic parts which lock together. Its unique three-section construction creates two chambers for water supply: the funnel-shaped drinking chamber, which gives your dog access to a refilling water supply, and the containment chamber which holds a generous supply of water. The containment chamber is enclosed on all sides and won't spill even if flipped upside-down.
An opening in the bottom of the funnel-shaped Drinking Chamber lets water in from the Supply Chamber to restore the drinking supply. A gravity-activated valve near top of funnel piece allows air into the Supply Chamber as water is depleted, but closes when the bowl is upside-down to keep the water from leaking out.
