    I need a solution

    Advertisements
    I am about ready to lose my mind. My dog has one big quirk, and I cannot handle it anymore. It started before DH got back from deployment but after we got him.

    He has two separate dishes, one for food and one for water. The water one is a little short cup because we tried a bigger dish and is scared him, yes my dog was scared of his freaking water dish. Well the quirk is that now he flips his water dish even WHEN THERE IS STILL WATER IN IT!

    He spent all last night up and down and out bed scratching at his dishes and then flipping his fucking water dish. My carpet is soaked. DH and I didn't get any sleep last night. We have tried to put it inside his empty food dish and he flips it out, we have tried it beside and he flips it over. After he flips it he pathetically licks the water off the carpet and then whines until we refill his dish. And then he fucking does it again. He won't get super close to it when he drinks either no matter where it is placed, like he is super timid about it.

    I am out of ideas. Help!

    i have one of these for in the car. you can actually hold it upside down and the water won't come out.

    Thanks for posting that link, both of my cats do this. Flynn more plays in it like a pool though.

    He had this one for his food dish and the jerk can flip it too. And the sound of his nails on it is horrible. Horrible. Like nails on a chalkboard. His water dish though is literally a little cup.

    I wonder if he could fit his head in there with the ring. I will give both another look.


    Velcro isn't a bad idea either. Hmm.
