    Always searching for the bowl or water and trying to keep from making a mess in the truck on trips.... Those days are over with The Drinking Spot. It holds about 2.5 gallons of water. This makes giving your Dog,Cat or yoga Goat something to drink quick and easy. I would love to see them come up with a plug system in the near future, however I just have a small dish towel folded in the opening and that works great! Buy a couple.. you'll love them. I even replaced the shop water bowl with one of these. Keeps the bugs and slime out of the water.
    • Hold lots of water
    • Does not change the taste of the water after sitting.
    • Sits upright when not in use
    • Dogs love it.
    • no, plug.

    Review for The Drinking Spot Pet Waterer
    November 8, 2014
    One of our pheasant hunting guests brought a drinking spot for his dogs, and I knew I had to get one. It is a wonderful product for carrying water for dogs while traveling and working in the field. No more bowls, caps, lids, buckets or jugs of water to keep track of. I love this product and plan to order a couple more.

    I've used the drinking spot for three years. It has stood the test of time, weather, and the elements. I always recommend it to others and have bought some as gifts for friends. I can easily water both dogs during hot days.

    Good service
    March 27, 2024
    I ordered this waterer and the first one I received leaked along construction seam during my initial test of the product. I advised gun dog supply of this issue and they immediately sent me a new one. After testing and use, the new one does not leak. I’m pleased with the product and the great service.

    Keeps an adequate amount of fresh water for my hunting partner and quickly tips upright without spilling to stow for the next stop. Purchase this item in "hunter orange" so I'd lesson the chance of leaving it behind.
    • Easy to use and keeps adequate amount of fresh water.
    • Comes in hunter orange
    • No drain plug with purchase
    • Some water remains after draining and storage
    By Dave
    Again, love the concept, but...
    July 28, 2023
    Similar to the past reviews of others, a great concept but a weird lack of manufacterer response to over 12 years of reviewers pointing out the need for a plug or cap to reduce spillage and prevent dust and bug entry. When wedged in amongst other gear and on pavement, water loss is minimal. When bouncing around off pavement, there's likely to be more slop.
    • Love the speed at which one can make water available to their dog.
    • Like the volume.
    • Read the room: an attached plug/stopper should be included.

    Have three of these. Use them inside and out for three big dogs. Hold a lot and are not as sloppy as a regular bowl. Highly recommend

    Solid construction.
    • Solid Construction
    • No access to clean or stopper for the inlet / outlet. I added a boat cooler stopper.

    Improvement over milk jug cut with utility knife
    October 25, 2022
    Good product, used in van with dogs on long road trips. Does what it is supposed to do. Constructive criticism would be the section where the dog drinks from is shallow.
    • Serves its intended purpose well
    • Some spillage. If used in vehicle recommend rubber floor mats

    Great concept, needs refinements
    October 13, 2022
    As other reviewers have mentioned, this is a good product that could be great. The size, ergonomics, and simplicity of use is great, but where's the plug and drain? If you're carrying water in your truck, naturally, you want to cap it off so it doesn't slosh or tip over and spill everywhere. And after you wash it out, you'd like for it to drain completely and dry, so there isn't any mold growth.

    I bought it knowing these things in advance, but for $50, I'd think you could put a couple of refinements on it. The drain could take some figuring, but a cap is a no-brainer. Why haven't they included that yet?
    • Size, ease of use, ergonomics
    • No cap, no drain

    Works well for a single dog
    September 14, 2022
    It holds a lot of water, which is the reason I got it. I use it for when I take my dogs to a field to throw tennis balls to them. It's tough to get more than one head in to drink, but I suppose that's okay.

    The one thing I didn't like is the fact that I can't drain all of the water out of it and I'm worried about what might grow inside when I store it for the winter. From a design standpoint, I would have put a hole in the top and fit a rubber plug in it so I can get all of the water out.
    • Holds lots of water.
    • As I mentioned, I can't drain all of the water out of it.

    Great product, only issue I have is I needed to buy a plug so the water doesn't spill while I travel.
    It was an easy fix just used a rubber stopper.

    My bearded dogs are sloppy drinkers!
    May 2, 2022
    The concept is good, but my experience is that the drinking area is too shallow and too low to the ground. Thus, water gets everywhere. I will be contacting gundog supply for a possible return!
    • Large capacity!
    • Makes a mess with my dogs.

    Needs a slight modification
    May 26, 2021
    This works, but reviews noting the lack of a drain plug are correct. There is no way to properly empty this. That can lead to mold and mildew problems.

    I cut a one inch hole in the top and used a rubber plug to seal the hole. Without a plug, you would lose the vacuum that keeps the water from running out.
    • Allows bringing enough water to keep your dog hydrated, over the course of several hours.
    • As built, lacks a drain plug.

    Better than lugging around a bowl and water bottles
    September 18, 2020
    Got two of these to try. One for my son's lab and one for my two labs. I find it is a lot easier to carry around this all-in-one product than a bowl and water bottles. Easy to refill. When your done just place the waterer in an upright position and go. My only "con" is that there is no drain plug. I wouldn't think it would affect the integrity of the waterer but I didn't design it either. Overall I think it's a good product for those travelling with pets/working dogs or using it in the field.

    For larger dogs, the drink opening and container volume should be increased. Otherwise, very good product that keep trash and mosquitos out of dogs water.

    The open area for the water to sit isn't as big as the pictures makes it look like. But other then that, it does work great and holds lots of water.

    Works great. One improvement, I'd like to get a cork to seal it when moving. A little water sloshes out and dust can get in.
