Half Scale Toilet

Self cleaning doggy water bowl

Gotcher self a couple of big grubby mutts? Cleaning and refilling the water bowls several times a day becomes a real chore. Sooo why not make a 'flushable' water bowl that could be cleaned and refilled with the push of a lever? Plus the toilet 'motif' would appeal to Fido, ha ha. Plumbing would be required but hey, it's a small sacrifice for the time saved.

       Despite its locale, water in the toilet bowl is often fresher than water that has been sitting in the dog's bowl all day. (Because of relatively frequent flushing, depending on number of occupants of house.) The freshness of the water is what attracts Fido.   

       Perhaps the dog's water bowl needs a re-design. A fountain-type design would aerate the water, and refreshen it, for example.

       A pressure plate on the floor around the bowl would flush it whenever Rover came for a drink.

       My kitty Frisco would love this as well. +

       [+] Most excellent idea! Of course it needs to look like a real toilet or they will snub it! haha

       Just have the bowl flush automatically every two hours if nobody else does it. Or when dog approaches.

       This being such an excellent idea, I tried implementing it for my own pet. It turns out that this is not a good idea for goldfish.
