Five-star review: “Can’t recommend this enough! Fits both my vehicles and installs in less then 1 min. Washes in the machine. Still let’s me use seatbelts for my dogs harness and gives him a better sense of security as his legs can slip off seat. Also keeps 100% of the dirt off my vehicle. Great quality. Next day delivery in a handy carrying case. Highly recommend this product!”

Made from food grade, lead and BPA-free ABS material, the bottle has a capacity of 12oz/350ml that lets you give your pet a quick drink when he or she is thirsty.

Five-star review: “A super convenient way of bringing water for my pup on our adventures. I like that it locks so it won’t leak in my backpack. Easy for the dogs to drink out of. It’s the right size for my pug for a few hours out, but if you have a bigger dog or are going out for longer you’d probably want to bring another water source.”
