What You’ll Need


  1. Place your pet’s water bowl inside the flower pot- and that’s it! Pour fresh water and watch your pooch cool themselves on a warm summer day.
  2. Optional: In case the bowl is not a snug fit, and you don’t want to switch it with another, you can use silicone adhesive to glue it together. This might make it a bit difficult to clean though, as you can’t just take the water bowl and dump it in a dishwasher.
