While it's definitely key to keep pets hydrated in warmer months, dropping temps don't mean you should drop this practice! There are several drink-up options on the go from sharing your bottle, packing disposable paper options, or even using a cloth, folding version instead. While I've admittedly done all three, this product is my best idea yet.

Sharing your bottle. While sports caps make it easy to offer a taste of your water to a dog, if you're already trying to break this practice and go greener, there's a good chance you're not buying a bottle on the road.
- Toting (and tossing) disposable paper options. Using paper (human) flatware that can later be tossed is another alternative but still not the most eco-tastic idea.
- Bringing reusable cloth bowls. I've featured a few of these fashionable items in the past, but there's one big problem — cleaning them out afterward. I worry that the bowls don't ever get totally clean, especially during my giardia paranoia days.
On the other hand, this Aqua-fur bowl ($15) is reusable and eco-friendly — no garbage, check! — plus can be washed with mild detergent in the sink or tossed in the dishwasher. It's made of FDA-approved food-grade silicone so there are no dangerous BPEs either. Are you sold yet?
