Instead waiting until your pup comes begging at the leg of your chair for a refill of its water dish, take a look at the Doggie Fountain. The fountain is a simple piece of tech for you dog: Connect it to your garden hose using a Y-splitter shutoff valve, adjust the height of the water stream using a valve built into the fountain, and you're done. Then all you have to do hope and pray your dog uses it.
You can cop the Doggie Fountain from Amazon for $40.
