It leaks but is better than carrying a bowl and bottle individually
on 2 July 2012
I brought this because it's RAC branded and I wrongly assumed it would be a quality product.
The problems for me are:
1) It's a bad lid and the bottle leaks unless you're holding it upright.
2) The opening is tiny and you have to put the tap on a trickle if you want to fill it without water splashing all round the bottle
3) Did I mention that the opening is tiny - it takes forever to rinse the soap out when washing the bottle
4) It's a screw top but it takes a lot of turns to unscrew the bottle from the bowl. It's just what you DON'T need when you've got the dog lead in one hand with a frisky, powerful dog pulling and a bag and it's a windy day and you have to hold the bottle upright and untwist it using the orange bowl.
It's a terrible design - obviously not designed by someone with a dog. But all the others look the same too.
As well as all the above fixed, I'd like a cross-body strap so it can be carried hands-free.
It does really put me off buying RAC endorsed products now if they are willing to endorse this.
