Today we have the opportunity to review the Zippy Bowl from Kurgo.
We were fascinated with how small this bowl actually zips up!
Side note : The first thing I noticed about the zippy bowl, is that there was a husky photo on the packaging! Teehee!
The zippy bowl, is a super cute portable doggie dish!
Use it for food or water, but let's focus on water today.
How does the zippy bowl work?
All you do is unzip!
When zipped up, the classic clutch style easily fits in any purse, pocket, or simply carry it with you, making it easily portable. PAWfect for on the go pups!
My husky Mika does not like to share a bowl with other dogs while at the dog park. And anyways, I would much rather bring our own bowl anyway. I mean, let's face it, do you want to drink out of a "community" cup? No.
The bowl is BPA free,
PVC free, and,
Fill it with water and allow your pups to drink!
I was impressed with the durability of the bowl, as I thought it would be a bit "floppy" for lack of a better word, and I anticipated it falling over when Koda stuck his big 'ol head in it. But it held up!
Talking about a portable water bowl brings me to the #nohotpets campaign.
The weather is getting warmer and warmer as we move towards summer time.
I did a post a few weeks ago (which you can find here) about the #nohotpets campaign.
The point of this, is to raise awareness about leaving pets in hot vehicles and other hazards which can occur to your pet during the hot summer.
Have you ever thought about how your dogs paws feel while walking on pavement in crazy hot weather?
I am sure you have experienced walking in bare feet on hot sand at a beach etc . . .
Imagine your dogs paws on black surfaces during the summer?
I am aware the pads on their feet can handle more then our bare human feet, but that does not mean that their paws are "heat proof."
Simple! Walk them early in the morning, or after the sun goes down in the evening.
This way the pavement will not be hot!
Keep your dog WELL hydrated during the hot days.
With the Kurgo Zippy Bowl, it is easy for you to keep water on hand at all times.
If you plan on being out for a while, don't underestimate the need your dog has for water.
Bring your portable bowl, and a water bottle. Fill up the bowl when needed.
Dogs also love to have cool treats on hot days!
Just like the human kids of the world.
