Product review: Petmate Travel Bowl Duo is lightweight, small, easily cleaned

You would think that I’d have enough travel pet bowls by now — but I cannot resist gear of any kind, and pet stores load the area around the cash register with tempting products, and…well, you can imagine the rest. My latest purchase is the Petmate Travel Bowl Duo (size Small), and it’s a useful addition to the collection.

Left bowl collapsed; right bowl popped up, and half removed, so you can see the felt bottom (and the Velcro pad  … Read more

New favorite traveling pet water bowl: Cycle Dog’s Trail Buddy Bowl

I keep a collapsible water bowl in my purse, and in our cars, and for years my choice was Canine Hardware’s Hydro Bowl — as I said back in 2009, “it’s small enough to fit in my purse or a pocket. Unfolded, it’s sturdy enough to stay reliably upright, it’s shallow, and its opening is wide and holds its shape pretty well. (Chloe gets spooked when her bowls close their jaws shut on her muzzle.) It’s also definitely waterproof.” After  … Read more

Packs flat when crate is collapsed: Thumbs up for Dexas Popware water bowl

As you know by now, we travel with Chloe’s Midwest metal wire crate, so she has a cozy and secure lair to curl up in when we need to go somewhere without her (I realize that doesn’t work for every dog owner — we are lucky to have a dog who likes her crate, falls asleep in it, and doesn’t make a fuss when we’re absent).

The wire sides of the crate are ideal not only because they discourage scraping (the  … Read more

Sleepypod’s Yummy bowls: Well-made food & water bowl set

When I learned a little while ago that Sleepypod was about to release a new product, I paid attention. The company makes well-designed, quality stuff — in the past I’ve praised both the Sleepypod Air carrier and the original Sleepypod carrier — and I was interested to learn how they’d handle their new project, a set of travel food and water bowls. I wrote to the company and asked for a set to review.

This is, therefore, a product that I  … Read more

Another collapsible dog bowl, inspired by origami

I’m always on the lookout for collapsible travel bowls, because they’re easy to pack and carry — but they have to be small, because Chloe’s a small dog. Too often, the collapsible bowls you find are jumbo-sized. I recently came across instructions on CraftStylish for a collapsible pet bowl made of oilcloth. I’m looking forward to giving this one a try, and I’m looking forward to the results — the design is clever, and you can  … Read more

Another collapsible dog bowl, Martha-style

In an earlier post, I reviewed a number of collapsible bowls and recommended ones that work well for small dogs. If you’d like to make one instead, Martha Stewart has directions and templates for you. In fact, she also provides a two-part video showing you how it’s done, starring Martha and actress Kate Walsh (click on the first two “Video” links, located just under the picture of the completed bowl).

A two-part video is necessary, it turns out, because the bowl  … Read more
