The Dakota 283 Dash 3.5 is a great way to carry your dog's water supply with you on the go. With a 3.5 gallon capacity, rubber plug, and crush resistance, it's the ideal travel companion for your dog. Itís great for hunting, vacations, or even as a water station at home.

The Dash 3.5 is manufactured with the same process as military cargo cases, so you can toss it in the back of the truck without worrying about cracks.

  • 3.5-gallon water capacity
  • Rubber plug stores in the bottom while in use
  • Weatherproof and crush resistant
  • Made with BPA-free and FDA approved polyethylene
  • Made in the USA
  • 1-year limited manufacturer warranty


    Lift up the handle end and remove the rubber plug. There's a small recess to store the plug on the bottom so your dog can't chew it while in use. Once the Dash 3.5 is laid down with the plug removed, the bowl area will fill with water. When the dog starts drinking, water will constantly backfill to ensure they don't run out. When it's time to go, tilt the unit up to return any leftover water inside and push the plug back in place.

    My dogs drink a lot of water especially in the summer. I was constantly filling the bowl. Got this problem solved! Holds a lot and keeps them happy and hydrated
    • Holds a lot. Has plug to keep from spilling
    • More difficult to clean out

    With this sturdy, large, and practical waterer, seeing mirages will never happen. The entire design is practical. It is simple to fill the water and the plug is effective. The dish is built in and refills are plentiful with the large holding tank. The waterer is easy to carry with the strong handle and there are no spills in the vehicle while traveling. I use it at dog training classes and for road trips. The dogs caught on right away and go right for the bowl. Kudos to the designers because they even thought like a dog and have a hidden place under the bowl for the plug. The plug won't be misplaced or chewed by your canine friends.

    Wonderful product- absolutely fills the need to have fresh water available for the dogs all day long. I live in Florida so evaporation is an issue but with the ability to have 3.5 gallons slowly flow into the bowl we have solved our water problem .

    Awesome... plugs need a tether
    April 9, 2022
    Awesome water solution for the field... but, plugs easily dislodge... need a tether....

    So .... drill a stainless screw into top with a wire to keep them ..... boom. Done.

    Great idea

    Thought I had found my go-to travel water but the plugs are finicky and tough to get in and out, especially in cold weather. Had one come out in the truck and soaked the bed -- somewhat operator error -- but it's an imperfect plug system at best. Functionally, I love it as I dont waste used water and can carry less.

    Great water dish
    September 23, 2021
    I’ve only been using it for a little over a week. Holds plenty of water. Easy to fill, and the plugs keep the water on the container. Heavy molded plastic seems like it will hold up well. Very easy to store in the truck and use on the return from the field. Really happy with this product as a water supply durning daily hunting trips and will work great for longer term hunting trips.
    • Easy to fill. Easy to use. Plugs seems to hold water well. No leakage. Heavy duty durable plastic.
    • None. The only thing that I could foresee is if I loose a plug and can?t get an extra. Imagine it will be possible to get a spare plug if needed.

    283 dash waterer
    September 16, 2021
    The container came with only one plug for the two fill holes. After contacting the company they sent another but it is slightly too small for the fill hole. I bought a plug at the hardware store that fits better.
    The container holds enough water for an afternoon in the dove field and the dogs drink well from it. The water temperature stays temperate.

    Strong, sturdy, and easy to use
    June 8, 2021
    The dog waterer is made from really strong thick plastic (I think it might be similar to a rotomold like on Yeti coolers) so it can take a beating. Very easy to use with the handle. The fill and waterer plugs make a tight fit so there's no leaking. The capacity is perfect for me and my 3 dogs (of various sizes and breeds) to go on a weekend camping trip. Can easily throw this in the back of the truck and go off-road and not worry about it breaking or leaking. Highly recommend! It does come with some plastic shavings inside from the manufacturing process, so be sure to fill and drain with water to get those out first before using with your dog.
    • Strong, large capacity, thick plastic, easy/ergonomic handle, bowl plug storage hole on the underside for when the bowl is in use.
    • Plastic shavings inside
