Review of PetGear Non Slip Travel Dog Bowl
This is a review of the PetGear non slip travel dog bowl, a simple plastic non slip dog bowl aimed at travel.
The PetGear non slip travel bowl comes via a speedy next day delivery from Amazon UK. Packaged well except for the label which for some reason has been stuck to the inside of the bowl meaning you have to spend time removing before you can use as an actual dpg bowl, we all know how much our dogs love chewing on paper, card and random things but not this time pooch!
The bowl is a fairly simple design and easy to fill with water. Its overall appearance is larger than I was expecting, it's 26cm wide and 8.5cm tall. The bowl itself is very lightweight and a is made of a thin plastic material. It would not take much to break it or long to chew through if your pup enjoys doing that sort of thing (like ours).
Saying that the non slip base makes it quite stable while moving or if knocked, the water will stay inside the bowl, mostly, due to this feature and the non spill rim helps with this too. It isn't as effective as the Prestige Road Refresher but it still helps.
It only comes in black and the only real feature for travelling we have noticed is the lip comes back over and in to the middle creating a smaller entry hole to eat or drink from and to stop water spilling out. We feel this is much more suited to food than it is water if you wish to leave it in the back of your car.
It is let down by it's size, so yes you can use this for any size dog, including larger breeds, but it isn't packed down easily or hidden away in a travel bag. It's a similar size or even bigger than that of usual dog bowls used at home. We actually use two bowls for our dog in the home and they're both smaller than this and he's a medium sized cocker spaniel cross.
- Has non spill rim
- Non slip base
- Next day delivery with Amazon Prime
- The lid which makes it non-spill can come off for easy cleaning
- Has a finger slot underneath the bowl so that you can easily pick it up on any surface
- Only available in black
- The bowl may be too light
- Sticky label placed inside bowl and awkward to remove
- Quite large in size so isn't really that portable
This is a handy, cheap and cheerful non spill dog bowl. It doesn't secure water as well as the Prestige does, nor can you keep any food or drink in it to store and save for later. If space isn't a problem and you need a large bowl then maybe this is the one for you.
