All of our dogs and puppies have access to a Lixit waterer for Dogs 24/7. This is a simple sanitary way to provide fresh drinking water to your puppy. They easily attach to any playpen or kennel and are always filled with filtered water. When indoors these work fantastic. I also add 1 packet of ProBalance Probiotic powder and one capful of Tropiclean fresh breath every time I fill it.
Meanwhile, when outdoors they all can have their big slurpy bowl of water. I don’t care if they bathe in it when outdoors, but I like the indoors to be neat and clean.
Some folks believe that the black nose on a dog can fade when continuously fed out of stainless steel. We do recommend ceramic if possible.
