Product Summary:

Drinkwell® Big Dog Pet Fountain

Ideal for large breed dogs, the Drinkwell® Big Dog Pet Fountain uses the same innovative watering system as the Original Pet Fountain, featuring the patented free-falling stream of water that consumers have come to rely on for cats and small dogs for the past decade. A large charcoal filter removes bad tastes and odors leaving your pet with fresh tasting filtered water. Designed by a veterinarian specifically for large dogs, the Drinkwell® Big Dog holds well over two gallons of water, making it the largest capacity pet fountain on the market (288 oz.) It's the most convenient way to provide man's best friend with fresh filtered water for days at a time.

Proven to benefit your pet's health, Drinkwell® Pet Fountains are a great way to show your pets just how much you care. Research shows that one of the best ways to improve your pet's health is to get them to drink more water. By using a 5-inch falling stream of water, the Drinkwell® Pet Fountain continually aerates your pet's water with healthful oxygen. A charcoal filter removes bad tastes and odors, giving your pet the best possible and most appealing way to stay hydrated.

Why Animals Love Running Water
In nature, moving water is much fresher than stagnant water. The movement constantly breaks the surface tension of the water and draws oxygen from the air into the water. This process is called aeration and it makes water more appealing to drink. Pets may be drawn by instinct to moving water for this reason.
The Drinkwell® Pet Fountain filters and aerates continuously moving water to keep it much fresher than a standing bowl of water. It satisfies the urge for running water and so helps eliminate jumping on counters in search of dripping faucets.

Big Dog Drinkwell
We have utilized two units for about 8 years now and the dogs enjoy the the running water. We like them for the qtty of water held as it gets both dogs through the day, especially here in hot Texas and we don't have to constantly check on a static bowl of water which would run out. My only suggestion would be a slightly thicker/sturdier bottom rim b/c if full when the unit needs cleaning and I pick it up wrong, I have cracked the thin plastic. Other than that, we and the dogs love it!

this product is a big disappointment
product looked great when I received it , set up was easy and looked like a good deal. One week later the pump stopped working and now I have a fifty five dollar or so piece of junk dog water dish.

What type of filter does this use?
Kellee F on Aug 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Drinkwellpremium replacement charcoal filter . I often order an extra pack of three when ordering from or if I'm at the pet store , I'll pick one up if I need some.
Does this shut off if it goes dry?
Linda N on Aug 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These fountains run on AC power and do not feature an automatic shut-off switch. Since the pumps are submersible, it is required that the fountain has adequate water supply at all times to prevent damaging the pump.
Is it an electrical plug in?
A shopper on Jan 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It has an electric cord that I wrap around the inside bottom of the fountain so it doesn't show as much and just expose what I need to reach the plug.
