The Torus Dog Water Bowl - Innovative Drinking Solution
Bailey testing the Torus
The Torus Dog Water Bowl has a few new innovations over your standard water bowl. The Torus (Latin for ‘hollow circular ring’) stores water inside the walls of the water bowl and holds up to 2 liters of water. We had Bailey, the boxer, from our Dogsized Product Tester Team, try out the Torus.
The bowl has knob which lifts off so you can insert the water filter before you add water. Water stored inside the walls ensures an ample supply of water, protected from dust and contaminants. The low profile also means no spills.
The knob can be set to 3 positions:
Tap: First insert the water filter. Then you can use tap water to fill up the Torus with water (note water will not flow into the drinking well during filling).
Lock: The Torus bowl is in the locked no-spill setting and can be carried to your dog’s usual drink station at home or be loaded into your car for traveling without spillage.
Drinking: To release water for drinking align the cap arrow with the dog symbol. Water will flow into the drinking well until the water outlet slot closes. As your dog drinks, water in the drinking well will be automatically replenished.
Torus Water Dog Bowl review from Bailey the Boxer and her parents:
We think the Torus water dish has a creative design to allow your dog to have fresh and filtered water, both at home and on the go. The design allows you to store your pups water within the walls of the water dish, and release it into the bowl when ready. This is quite convenient for traveling and monitoring your dogs water intake.
For a NYC dog, some of the downsides are that the Torus is large, bulky and quite heavy when filled. While traveling, it's certainly a nice feature to be able to store the water in the bowl, but we're not sure the convenience replaces the ease and versatility that a collapsible rubber bowl and bottle of water provide when traveling. If you live in the burbs and have a large car, this might be less of an issue.
At home, the Torus is convenient and its bulk is less of an issue. We used the bowl to regulate the water intake of out 4yr old Boxer, who drinks any amount of water in the bowl, no matter now much or little.
A turn of the knob allows you to refresh your pet's water supply, while keeping track of total water consumed through the day, or you can leave it open so fresh water continues to enter the drinking area when the water level drops. If you need to monitor or limit your dogs water intake, you can turn the knob to lock the automatic refill. Also remember that once water goes from the storage area to the drinking area, you cannot automatically put it back into the storage area.
It's definitely a creative solution for the dog owner that monitors their dog's water intake.
The Torus comes in a 1 and 2 liter size (note 1 liter not yet available in U.S. - coming soon),
as well as, a variety of colors.

There is something special about medium breeds that most people cannot ignore. After all, when comparing dog sizes, they are usually more physically active than small pooches. They are also more portable than big dogs. In this respect, we have some popular suggestions for you if you are open to adopting one!
Dogs that stay small are adorable, easy to carry and don’t eat much. This means they are easier to take care of, even on a budget! The thing about them is that they don’t always have a good reputation, primarily due to certain misinformed stereotypes. Chances are, you may also be having some of these misgivings.
Crate training is crucial because it ensures that your dog ends up with a good sense of security and comfort when you bring home one of these crates. They have to feel comfortable enough to enter the crate without feeling scared or forced.
Small dogs are adorable, cuddly, and they suit any home or apartment. They make the best companions for kids too! So, if you find yourself trying to decide which dog to adopt, we’ve got a few ideas on which ones should be at the top of your list.
