Choco Nose No-Drip Dog & Cat Water Bottle, Color Varies, 16mm Nozzle, 11.2-oz review

Features

  • Best for small breeds
  • Small steel tip for little mouths
  • Easy installation

If you’re looking for 1 of the best dog crate water bottles, the Choco Nose No-Drip Dog & Cat Water Bottle is a fantastic option. It’s suitable for toy and small breeds, with a small steel tip specifically designed for little mouths. The bottle is made from strong plastic and the tip can even attach to soda bottles, making it eco-friendly.

This bottle comes with a sturdy, easy to use plastic attachment for your dog’s crate, which I found very handy, or can be nailed to the wall.

Pros

  • Easy to install onto a crate or even a pen
  • Easy to remove from crate to refill with water, even when the crate is closed
  • Prevents mess and spillage that comes with water bowls
  • Most owners found that this bottle dripped less than other models they had tried
  • Some owners found the bottle helpful for their dogs with additional health needs, such as those who need constant access to water or have trouble drinking from a bowl

Cons

  • Some owners found that although the bottle is ‘drip-free’, it can sometimes drip and cause a small puddle
  • Some found that the bottle was too small for their dog and needed to be refilled multiple times each day
  • Can be easily knocked out of holder by very playful dogs
  • Not compatible with plastic crates, as the only place to attach the bottle is the wire door which owners found tricky
  • Some owners found that the plastic attachment clip broke easily and wasn’t sturdy enough for the bottle

Choco Nose No-Drip Large Dog Water Nozzle, Color Varies, 22mm Nozzle review

Features

  • Best for large breeds
  • Nozzle attaches to any PET bottle
  • Large tip for big mouths

The Choco Nose No-Drip Large Dog Water Nozzle provides a great option for larger breeds, featuring a wider, stainless steel tip. The nozzle doesn’t come with a bottle, but instead fits any PET bottle (meaning plastic bottles like soda bottles). This is both eco-friendly and in my experience, very handy as you can use bottles you have at home.

The nozzle comes with a secure, plastic attachment I found easy to install onto my dog’s crate. Alternatively, you can nail it to a wall or any wooden furniture.

Pros

  • Easy to set up and refill, with an easy attachment to the crate
  • Most owners found that with the right size bottle, the nozzle was drip-free
  • Helps to provide clean water when the owner is out of the home
  • Some found that being able to attach a big bottle meant they only had to refill their dog’s water once a day, which is particularly helpful for large breeds like Golden Retrievers, Pitbulls, and Boxers.
  • Prevents spillage and mess that can occur when using a bowl, especially for playful dogs who move around a lot in their crate

Cons

  • Some owners found that the ball in the tip of the nozzle got stuck, making water spill out at times
  • Despite being ‘non-drip’, some found that drips still occur leaving a puddle
  • Some owners found that the nozzle wasn’t very durable
  • With the wrong sized bottle, the nozzle can fall over or be knocked off the crate easily
  • Some found the nozzle was too big for their dog

Lixit Top Fill Dog Water Bottle, 44-oz review

Features

  • Best for all breeds
  • Adjustable height and positioning
  • Flip-up lid for easy refill

The Lixit Top Fill Dog Water Bottle is a great option for all breeds, made with sturdy plastic and a stainless-steel tip. I found it was easy to attach to my dog’s crate with a plastic clamp that can be placed either inside or outside the crate. A flip-up lid makes this bottle easy to fill without having to remove it from the crate., which I found was much easier than having to take the bottle back and forth to the sink.

Pros

  • Owners found being able to refill the bottle without removing it very handy
  • Reduces splashing and spills that can occur with a bowl, especially with puppies and playful dogs who move around a lot while in their crate
  • Some owners found it helped to keep their dog more hydrated while they were out of the house
  • Many owners found that when attaching the bottle and not over-tightening the valve, the bottle was drip-free
  • Handy for travel and dog shows

Cons

  • Some owners found that this bottle leaked and dripped, making a mess in their dog’s crate
  • Some found that while attaching the bottle to the crate, the crate attachment was prone to breakage
  • Owners often found a problem with the seal in the tip and cap of the bottle
  • Some found that the crate attachment wasn’t strong enough for a full bottle of water, resulting in the bottle falling off regularly
  • Some found the bottle broke after a few weeks of use
