Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Anyone know of a good water bowl that will prevent them from picking it up. I have a regular metal one and my new pup likes to pick the bowl up and spill the water everywhere and I am trying to break that now. Ive tried a larger bowl and he plays in it.

We have one of those giant water fountains since we have the 2 dogs and 2 cats. It's too big to throw around, but Ghost will splash the water out from time to time.

"Being the parent of a special-needs pet means living your life constantly poised on the edge of a double-edged sword. On the one hand, you become a fierce defender of the ways in which your little one is perfectly ordinary — all the things he or she can do that are just like what everybody else does. And yet, you never lose sight of how absolutely extraordinary that very ordinariness is, how difficult, remarkable and rewarding that fight to be 'just like everybody else' has been."  -Gwen Cooper, "Homer's Odyssey"

They make weighted bowls and also bowls with rubber on the bottom so they cant slide them/move them to flip them. Don't get bowls with lips either as they are easy for dogs to pick up.

I would get an elevated feeder- anyone who has met my two know they love to play in bowls or lounge around with their paws in the bowl if they are directly on the ground, but I have two elevated feeders and they don't mess with them at all aside from their intended use.

I use a heavy saucepan that the handle came off of for the water bowls. Sounds ridiculous but it keeps them from playing with it. Elevated feeder/waterer may also work.

I wouldn't go as far as saying that our fountain is giant, but there isn't a lip for Brewer to grab a hold of. I think the capacity is 3 liters or so...

I use a gravity waterer with a filter. It works great for Cato - but he still digs in it from time to time. i think its a puppy thing.

My water bowl is an metal pot that doesn't have handles on it! It is a big one and perfect for water. I drink the tap water so does maggie!

I would also recommend an elevated feeder. Saber would also lay down and stick his paws in the water bowl when he was a puppy. I switched to an elevated feeder and haven't had a problem since.

We use that same one in the crate, love it.

Outside the crate I have one like this. He has never picked it up and the rubber ring keeps it from sliding around.
