Product Description

Contech 300000408 waterdog automatic outdoor pet drinking fountain

Amazon.com

The WaterDog automatic outdoor pet drinking fountain lets your dog help itself to fresh water, so you don't have to worry about stagnant or empty water bowls. WaterDog senses your dog's approach, and automatically dispenses a cool, clean stream of fresh drinking water. Smart sonar sensing technology triggers the WaterDog to turn the water on when your pet comes within 3 feet (1 meter), and turns it off when your pet leaves. You'll never have to worry about what your dog's been drinking again.

Constructed of durable, high-quality UV resistant materials, the WaterDog has been designed to provide many years of reliable service. The WaterDog's hose has a metal covering to protect it from chewing and to reflect heat to help keep the water cool, even on bright sunny days.

How It Works

The WaterDog is an automatic drinking fountain that is designed to give your pet direct access to fresh clean water, at any time. A sonar-based proximity sensor triggers the WaterDog to turn the water on when your pet comes within three feet (one meter), and turns it off when your pet leaves.

Dogs quickly learn that they can always get a drink from the WaterDog. This greatly reduces the risk of your dog becoming dehydrated on a hot day, or developing disease from a contaminated water bowl.

The WaterDog attaches easily, without tools, to any outdoor faucet, and the height is fully adjustable to suit any sized dog. With the "Y" connector (included), you can connect a garden hose alongside the WaterDog, so you never need to remove the device to water your garden.

We loved our waterdog, and so did our dogs - it didn't take long at all for them to figure out how to trigger the unit to dispense water, and it was nice cold water straight from the faucet. Our only mistake was leaving it on the faucet in the winter. It got too cold, cracked one of the pieces and started leaking. However their customer service was great, and they sent us a replacement part at no charge.

This unit works great for 2-3 months, but then it fails.
I am having very frustrating experience with this device. I bought 5 units since it came out on market because it kept on stop working.
Although it broke after a few months, I kept on buying a new one because my dogs love this. But now, I give up.
I think the problem is with the magnet. It is too weak, and after a while the magnet gets stuck or does not move.
Really, this unit works for about 2-3 months, and that's it.

For the last 4 years I have had to purchase a new unit- they last for the 3 months of summer and then they burn out! My dogs love them so I have purchased a new one each year at their request......Why don't they make a product that works? Why isn't there any competition for this type of product? VERY DISAPPOINTED

I like the water dog, but I know not to use it as the only source of my dogs water. Out of the blue , twice it has not worked. My dog is pushing into it and forcing it face down when it is not working, so then if it starts working, the water is in a odd position, I have only had it happen twice, but that is twice in a 3 week period, but for the most part it is great, it did not cure me having to provide a fresh bowl of water each day.

It only took 1 use for my dog to learn how to use it, so that was nice.

We have a large dog and have had our first and only Water Dog in operation since 2005.

We had to install a newer style exterior faucet on the house so it could seat properly initially, and we pull it in the house every time the temperature goes below 35 degrees. Needless to say, it is in most of the winter. However, we've had the same one in operation for 6 years, changing the batteries every Summer, and reinstalling it every Spring.

Our dog loves it and so do we. He's taught other dogs to use it as well. He figured out how to avoid the hot water in the pipes on hot days, by going up to it and letting it run for a minute before he takes a drink. Before we got the Water Dog, he would tip his bowl over, or it would get full of dirt and mud. This removes the bowl from being a play toy, and assures him of fresh, cool, available water everytime he wants it. He gets excited every Spring when it goes back up. It is starting to give us problems this year, by not always sensing his presence, but we believe if we pull the sensor screens and clean them, it might solve the problem. If not, we will definitely buy another one.

This unit is great when it works, but it stops woking so easily and so soon. First, you need to have the right water pressure to have this device work properly(I had to install an water pressure regulator in between), and when the weather gets hot in the summer, the valve often stops working(I had to drain the water each time). And the most of all, the unit starts malfunctioning in less than 6 months on average. Beacuse my dogs love to drink out of faucet, I had been replacing the waterdog several times even though the unit did not last long. At this point, I am giving up on this not-so-reliable device.

Verified Purchase
This is a customer service review, the product speaks for itself with the noted continued purchases even after failure. I wanted to thank Contech in some meaningful way for the pleasant experience and for standing behind their product.

We have (as noted by many) purchased several of these units over the years as no matter what I have tried, this system works and works consistently for every sized dog in our lives. This is the first time I contacted customer service for help when it failed with a leak in the battery cover, resulting in corrosion of the contact plate.

The unit was 2 years old + 1 month but finances are tight and not finding parts on-line, I found their website and emailed them at 9:30 PM EDT using the provided address, requesting purchase of just the cover. They responded in less than 1 hour with a personable note, directing me to call customer support. My request was forwarded to the customer service group and when I called during business hours they had the email, were exceptionally pleasant and are not only sending me the part but warrantied it, knowing it was slightly out of date.

We bought ours from Pet Smart. It is a really great idea and worked well for the first 3 weeks, then water began leaking through the battery compartment. Luckily, our dog did not get sick from the rusty overflow of water! I will wait until the design has been improved to buy another one.
