Gulpy Water Bottle
The is one of those ideas that’s so simple, yet so smart, that you wish you had thought of it. The bottle features a plastic fold-up trough. When your dog is thirsty, simply flip the trough down, squeeze water into it, and voila, your dog has a handy dog friendly drinking fountain. You can bring it along anywhere and refill it as needed. The trough can be adjusted to different angles so that it fits different doggie heights and face shapes.

The Gulpy® BPA free pet water dispenser is great for bringing with you anywhere your dog might need a quick drink of water. We use it when hiking, biking, or simply walking our dogs. This portable pet water dispenser has a convenient clip for attaching to your belt or pants and it is just the right size to fit in bicycle water bottle holders as well. The design of the Gulpy lets you quickly flip it open, and squeeze the bottle to give your dog just the amount of water they need at the moment.

The Gulpy is a simple product that does its job really well. It’s a water bottle with a screw-on cap attached to a scoop-shaped piece of plastic. Closed, the scoop hugs the bottle and allows it to be carried in a normal water-bottle holster. Flipped open, the scoop holds water (squeezed out of the bottle) in a convenient “dish” for your dog to drink from.It has become strangely difficult to find the Gulpy dog water bottles I’ve praised in a number of past posts, so when I saw the Pet2O clip-on dog waterer, I snapped it up. What a clever idea, I thought — just sell the flip-down part of a dog water bottle, and structure it so that it attaches to any disposable water bottle with a squeeze top.There are some alternatives on the market right now, including the dog water bottle, which comes in a number of sizes, the bottle/bowl and Lixit’s portable water bottle/bowl. The Handi-Drink is pretty close in appearance to the Gulpy, and may stand on its end better than the Gulpy does, but it requires an extra step to use: You first have to attach the water pan to the bottle and then squeeze out the water. The Water Rover is extremely clunky. The Thirsty Dog is similar to the Gulpy, but with a shoulder strap attached to the cap, which I absolutely don’t want but you might. Some users complain, though, that when the bottle is full, it can be so heavy that the bottle pulls out of the cap.Those issues aside, though, the Gulpy was great, and when it seemed like they were getting to be hard to find — oh, about a year ago — I bought a second one, just in case I lost or broke my first one. I also considered my alternatives. I reviewed the (insuperable reservations), the (grave reservations), and the H2O4K9 water bottles for and dogs (reservations). I should mention that I bought all of the dog water bottle products mentioned in this post — I will always let you know when a product I’m reviewing has been paid for or provided by someone else.The Gulpy is a travel water bottle for dogs that has a retractable tray that your dog can drink from. Similar to the auto dog travel mug that you squeeze to get water into the bowl, and the H204K9 tra...Hi, Jennie! The small K9 can be clipped to a belt loop with the carabiner — it’s a little clanky, but I’d prefer that to an over-the-shoulder sling in your weather. The old Gulpy clips on to a waistband, which might jostle off in a romp — the new Gulpy has a place for a carabiner, so maybe you keep the old one in the car and buy a new one? And you could get one of those dog waistpacks — the one I like best has a slot for a water bottle — but again, in your heat, I’d think twice about something around my midsection.
