So I was looking around for something new and perhaps different and stumbled upon the buddy bowl. After reading a lot of reviews, especially those from law enforcement K-9 people, I thought I'd give it a try. My current dog is a giant Golden Retriever with a seemingly unquenchable thirst. I've never seen a dog drink so much water. So one bowl is definitely not enough.
I liked the fact that it came in different colors. That has nothing to do with function, but I like color. So, when it got here, I was pleased with how it looked. Make sure you READ THE DIRECTIONS!!! It is not like all the other bowls, it comes in 3 pieces, and can be a tad difficult if you just try to pull it apart. If you follow the directions, which are very simple, you will have no problems taking it apart. I noticed other reviewers complain about how "complicated" it is, and that simply isn't true. It is easy to take apart and clean, easy to put back together, and holds a lot of water. I actually filled mine past the "fill line", and it still works ok. I really like the fact that the opening is smaller than my other bowls, which prevents my piggie dog from gulping water in great quantities. He has to take his time, which for him is something he is not used to doing. And not a drop was spilled in my rough riding SUV. I am happy, my dog is happy.Read more ›
I agree that the cover can be a bit tough to get off, but I think that's part of what makes them so leak proof.
The seller was great as well- responded to my color request, before she had even received the Amazon order and the bowl arrived days ahead of schedule, right on my dog's birthday.
If you have a dog that spills water, or travels with you, I highly recommend this bowl. Well worth the money.
I have tried under-filling giant water bowls, but he crashes into them or steps into them and either splashes water out, or tips them over. Wet floor. This bowl is pricey, but is is the solution I was looking for. I pour one 32 oz bottle of water in to fill up the reservoir, then a second 32 ounces to fill the drinking area. We both win! He has constant access to water and there is no mess for me to deal with....even when he tips the Buddy Bowl upside-down. Brilliant product!
It can be a bit tricky the first time you take it apart to clean it, but follow the instructions and you'll be good to go!
I would recommend getting your dog thoroughly used to it before leaving them alone together, since ours chewed the lid pretty badly in the first weeks.
We didn't get our requested colors -- so as much as I love Amazon and use it whenever possible, if you are real choosy about the color, consider ordering directly from the manufacturer.
If you have a dog with a VERY large muzzle, I would think you would have to fill this more often so he/she could reach the water line. It's as easy to fill as a normal water bowl, but not as easy to clean. Still, worth it to us.
UPDATE: After a few months it is getting harder to open - but again it's winter now. I have been washing the pieces in the dishwasher and that keeps them very clean.
I'm very happy with it.

Yes, I think the product is great,! Does what it says! Very little water gets on my dog's face. The only problem I have is sometimes getting the top off to refill the water.Published 8 days ago by Amazon Customer
Run it under hot water and the top will pull apart fairly easily for cleaning. I put all 3 pieces in the dishwasher and it has held up fine for the past 10 years. Read morePublished 16 days ago by Janis
This bowl helped us condition our puppy to stop playing with her water bowl. Such a great product. Difficult to clean but that's because of its excellent tight seal.Published 11 months ago by Russell C.
Puppy chewed the rim very easily … still held water but a bugger to open and refill … disappointing could not replace just the part.Published 11 months ago by Irene Potocki
Wow, what to say. My dogs never tipped over their water dish. Then the cat came to live with us and he has a water fetish, splashing in and tipping over any bowl of water. Read morePublished 12 months ago by vigi
