I’m always looking for new products to spoil my good boy with. New treats, new collars, anything I can get my hands on.
I love seeing companies experiment and create innovative products that solve problems I didn’t even realize I had. Today I’m going to tell you about one of these products, the BarxBuddy Silicone Dog Bowl.
This portable dog bowl is fantastic for people that like to travel with their furry friends. I highly recommend picking up one of these BarxBuddy dog bowls if you’re active with your pet.
In this review, I’m going to go over everything I love about this bowl, and why I think it’s a necessity for every dog owner.
First of all, the bowl is very portable. The BarxBuddy Silicone Dog Bowl was designed specifically to be portable and fit in backpacks and it does this extremely well.
The dual-bowl rolls up into a very tiny tube that you can easily fit in any backpack. It can be very difficult to find room for a single traditional dog bowl in a backpack before a hike or road trip, let alone two.
The BarxBuddy dog bowl gives you two bowls in a tiny, easily transportable package.
My main concern before buying the BarxBuddy dog bowl was that it would get worn down pretty fast. I figured if I rolled and unrolled it a lot, and jumbled it around in my backpack every day, then it would tear.
A tear in the bowl would lead to water leaks, and the bowls would become practically useless, except for food. Well, I am very delighted to say that I have not experienced any wear and tear with my BarxBuddy Silicone Dog Bowl.
It is made out of silicone and is extremely durable. After months of constant use, I have not experienced a single leak, and both bowls are in perfect condition.
I touched on this earlier, but I love that there are two 10 oz bowls for the space of one. I go hiking with friends very often, and one of my friends loves to bring their dog as well.
I always feel like a pro pet owner when I whip out the BarxBuddy bowl and fill both sides up with water so both of our boys can enjoy a refreshing drink. My friend used to just slowly pour water out of her bottle, and so much of it would end up on the ground.
I think she and her pup both appreciate me bringing the BarxBuddy dog bowl along. It is one of the best gears when hiking with a dog.
Easy to Clean
I’ll be completely honest, I hate doing dishes and that’s why I have a dishwasher. I was extremely excited to see that the BarxBuddy silicone dog bowl is completely dishwasher safe.
As soon as I got the bowl, I threw it in the dishwasher just to be safe, and to make sure that it could hold up to the wash. It came out perfectly fine.
Since then, I’ve probably washed the bowl once or twice a week, and have never had a single issue. So yes, it is very dishwasher safe.
BarxBuddy offers a 30-day money-back guarantee if you’re not satisfied with the bowl (but trust me, you will be). I’m pretty frugal, so this guarantee is what tipped me over the edge on my decision.
There was practically no risk if the dog bowl ripped or didn’t work as expected so I thought why not. I’m very satisfied with my purchase and look forward to using the BarxBuddy silicone dog bowl for years to come.
