I figured I would see if anyone had any water bowl advice for me b/c I'm having issues as well. The problem is...well, there are a few that all converge into being a big problem. Problem #1 - I have 2 St. Bernards so they drink a LOT of water. Problem #2 - Maggie insists on splashing in the water bowl as soon as I put it down effectively spilling it all. Problem #3 - I live in the South and it is hot as *!?#. Problem #4 - Can't buy any automatic waterers or leave hoses out or anything of that nature due to the fact that my dogs are extraordinarily destructive. Problem #5 - During the day, I am going to have to be at work so during the hottest time of the day, no one is there for approx 9 hours. Anyways, how I have it now is I have two 5 gallon buckets that I have padlocked to the fence that I fill up with water at least twice a day (when I leave for work and when I get home). But, like i said, Maggie splashes it all out. I have had 2 people now complain to me that I'm not giving them enough water and saying they were going to call animal control which I feel horrible about b/c they are very well cared for dogs - but we have this water problem. With Maggie, even if I put out 50 water bowls, she'd splash them all out. I can't leave the hose running in them b/c they will rip up the hose. :roll: I'm just running out of ideas. Any advice???
