Does anyone know the best water carriers to have on a crate, we are due to fly back to the UK with our two dogs Tilly & Joey in August and i'd like to ensure they have enough water. They have gerbil/ rabbit bottles that they need to lick to get out i just don't think they would. Also the ones that just clip on the side but the water may spill out when moved?? Help anyone?? Also any advise for flying, this is their first time. I've been lucky enough to get on the same plane with them but unfortunately they are out of my site.......just waiting for a doggy airline to open when they get their own seat, for the cost they should be in 1st class!! lol
Thanks in advance x

Hi Kermiy,

A friend of mine is flying her dog to Japan early next week and she told me that she bought a water dish with a partial lid around like this.

I can ask her how it worked after then land in Japan on Wed next week.

Years ago, when I looked into crate bottles, they had ones especially made for dogs. However, it seemed to me the water dripped out too easily. (The openings were larger than for gerbils and rabbits.)

Hi kermiy,

Sorry it took a long time but I heard from my friend yesterday and she told me the dish worked perfect!

She had tested before by putting some water in and turn it over to shake but it didn't spill. I am not sure exactly what brand dish she bought but it was like the one on the website. Please invest one and try yourself because it will handy in the car too.

You might want to check this one out. This might work better...
