Heated Water Bowls ??????

8 posts in this topic

I have gone through 2 $40 electricly heated water bowls in 2 weeks. The boy just won't stop chewing on them. He has cow hoofs, pig ears and plenty of toys to chew on. He just likes destroying his food dishes and I haven't been able to stop him for a month now.

Is there a metal heated dish out there that a guy can buy?

I was at gander and about 4 different petshop and Nada, just the plastic ones.

Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks

check out the Canine Canteen available at Lion Country Supply and other places. I've had one for probably 8 years and will be getting another as the smaller plastic one I tried to get away with in kennel #2 this year was all froze up this morning already...

Where is this lion country and supply you speak of?

can I order it online?

Has anyone ever heard of a heater core? I guess it looks like a power stick (one of them things that accepts 5 different 3 pronged outlets) that you just put in the water and it keeps it from freezing?

Mudman,

I have a little female lab that would probably take care of a plastic water dish in about 2 hours. I bought a stainless steel bowl with the metal wire-wrapped cord at Mill's Fleet. It was $32.00 and it seems very well built. That is one of the cheapest prices that I have seen for stainless. I checked it this morning and it was full of water and not one speck of ice. Not too bad for -2 actual temp. Too cold for my dog outside, but not for her water dish.

I gave up on using electric heaters for my dogs. One shorted out for no apparent reason. Glad it was on a GFCI. Now, when I feed my dogs twice a day, I bait there water and they drink it all. Just soak a little dry kibble in some warm water and they should drink it. I think my dogs stay more hydrated in the winter than in the summer when they have ready access to water. Some people use canned salmon or canned cat food to flavor their dogs water.

Go stainless/metal.

Buy quality once, have it for a lifetime.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
