The Best Heated Dog Bowls For Your Cold Weather Pooch
Just about every dog loves to frolic in the snow (at least for a few minutes). And, if you've got a cold weather dog like a husky or malamute, you know exactly how hard it can be to get them to come inside! One problem all cold-weather dog owners share, however, is how to keep their doggos hydrated in the winter months. Leaving a bowl of water outside is difficult as the temperature drops because icing over not only prevents your dog from drinking and could lead to dehydration, but it can crack or damage bowls as well.
Thankfully, there's a solution: heated dog bowls. Running off a simple wall socket, these bowls have internal coils that will keep your pupper's water warm enough to prevent freezing, without getting too warm, and allow her to comfortably lap up and stay hydrated. Remember to exercise caution when using electricity outdoors; it's best to keep these plugged in under a roof or in a garage or barn. Be sure to monitor the cord for any chewing or damage, and replace the bowls if the cord gets marred.
