We were excited to recently receive the H2O4K9 Stainless Steel Dog Bottle And Bowl in the mail for review. As many of you know we are guide dog puppy raisers and we are currently raising our third guide dog puppy in training, Dublin. As a guide dog puppy raiser we take our puppies just about everywhere and we are always in need of a good dog water bottle and dog travel bowl.
If you’ve been following our blog for a while then you probably remember some of our past dog water bottle and travel dog bowl reviews. As we mentioned earlier we were very excited for the H2O4K9 Dog Bottle and Bowl because this dog product is not a separate bottle and bowl, but instead the screw off cap acts as the dog bowl. As an added bonus we also received the H2O4K9 NEOSLING to help tote our brand new dog bowl and bottle around when out and about.
Here are some of the details on the product:
H2O4K9 Stainless Steel Dog Bottle And Bowl

My First Impression of the H2O4K9 Stainless Steel Dog Bottle And Bowl
Now that we have all the details out of the way let me tell you our first impressions of the H2O4K9 Stainless Steel Dog Bottle And Dog Bowl. We’re always excited when we receive a new dog product in the mail and the H2O4K9 package was no different. When we first pulled the bottle out of the box our first impression was that this was definitely a high quality bottle and bowl. We were pleasantly surprised to also find the red neoprene NEOSLING in our package as well.
We were happy to find that the bottle was made out of a high quality stainless steel and held in our hands felt very durable much more so than any of the other dog bowls or bottles we received in the past. We played around with the bottle for a little while, open.closed the lid, rinsed it out, added water, put it in the NEOSLING, threw it over our shoulder, and removed the caribiner.
A few things that we had mixed opinions on:
- We noticed the H2O4K9 water bottle came with a caribiner which we did not think we would ever use mainly because the water bottle, empty or full, would be annoying dangling from our backpack by a caribiner so we promptly removed it. However, we do plan on attaching the bottle by the caribiner to several objects including our backpack as a part of our review.
- A second thing we noticed was that even though we liked the NEOSLING we always carry a backpack around on our guide dog outings, backpacking, or hiking so although the NEOSLING was cool we probably would not use it regularly.
- Finally the bottle de-attachs into two parts, a bottle and a bowl. Our initial observation was this could be a positive and a negative. However, we’ll determine our final thoughts after we have a chance to test the dog bowl/bottle out in the field.
Overall our initial impression was that this was a high quality water bottle and dog bowl however, we still wanted to test our new toy in the field. As a guide dog puppy raiser we go on outings practically every weekend. For instance we recently worked on our guide dog puppy training at the Getty Museum. We have several other guide dog puppy training trips planned and we will definitely be using our new H2O4K9 Stainless Steel Dog Bottle And Dog Bowl during our outings.
We will take our H2O4K9 Bottle out on a few outings with our guide dog puppy in training, Dublin and in the coming week we will publish a midterm review of the H2O4K9 Dog Bottle and a final video review of the product.
