Leaving fido outside on a hot summer’s day is bad enough, but leaving him (or her) without enough water is tantamount to Abu Ghraib torture. Do you and your dog a favor and get the Waterdog-Automatic Pet Fountain. Okay, so a large bowl of water might suffice on those long, hot summer days, but nothing will beat this gadget. It attaches to your outdoor faucet and uses a 3 foot proximity sensor to turn on and dispense a stream of cold, flowing water to your pooch’s wavering tongue. Just make sure you replace the 4 C batteries once a year.
Frontgate has it for $80.
