Dog Drinking Fountains

The Pawcet Provides an Easy Way for Pooches to Gain Backyard Hydration

— December 30, 2015 — Lifestyle
A puppy that likes to play in the garden for hours needs the kind of access to water that this dog drinking fountain can provide. Tony Lytle designed this product that he calls the Pawcet: a faucet that can be operated by the push of a canine paw.

This dog drinking fountain comprises a red plastic container that's molded into the shape of a thick, flat tile. It accommodates the hookup of the common 5/8 inch garden hose, which is used to regularly fill it up. Despite being at capacity, the Pawcet remains sealed until a thirsty animal comes along and steps on it. When a foot is placed in the center of the reservoir, a hole in the top opens up and begins spouting due to the pressure. This alternative dog bowl is a way to enable the independence of your pet.
