Traveling with dogs can be ruff, especially because your pup’s health and comfort is a top priority. But there’s no need to stress any longer. Whether you’re driving, camping, glamping, or just taking a fun day trip, these bowls are sure to keep your dog one happy (and full and hydrated) traveler:

1. Ruffwear’s Quencher Bowl, $14.95

This is a great option for the on-the-go pup. Its fabric material makes it packable and collapsible, and it fits nicely into knapsacks or pockets. These bowls comes in three colors and sizes, so you have lots of options to choose from.

Perfect for the pup who takes his/her hiking seriously, this Ruffwear bowl boasts the added feature of being closeable. Whaaaaat? Yes, that’s right — the drawstring feature helps keep goodies safe but still accessible.

And it fits quite nicely into your backpack OR your pooch’s. After all, it’s always nice when someone carries their weight.

3. BarkShop’s Nomad Travel Bowls, $25

We would never toot our own horn. (That’s why we have a strict anti-horn policy here.) But you guys, you guys, these bowls are pretty effing great. First of all, you’re getting two bowls for your buck — a food bowl and a water bowl — PLUS they come in a convenient one-size-fits-all pack.

The water bowl holds 1.1 liters of liquid and the other can handle up to 1.4 liters of solid food. They’re also stylish, leak-proof, stain-resistant, and long-lasting. The bowls even zip up together into one easy-to-carry lil’ disc.

Added bonus: This bowl carrier doubles as a throwback to your old CD case.

Most importantly, these bowls were put through BarkShop’s rigorous product test by experts like Ruby here.

4. Kurgo’s Collaps a Bowl, $10

Kurgo’s travel bowl has got some range. Although it holds up to 24 ounces and expands to 3.5 by 6 inches, it also collapses to just one inch thick, making it impressively portable.

It’s also dishwasher-safe and their slogan is really fun to say: “pack it, pop it, pour it.” I just keep saying it. My co-workers have asked me to stop. But I won’t.

5. Posh Puppy Boutique Good Travel Bowl, $22

This Good Travel Bowl is, well, good. It combines two things in one: the bottom part is an easily removable, BPA-free waterproof bowl for either food or H2O, while the top, with its drawstring fastener and carrying strap, serves as a storage space for food. And while it’s a little on the bigger side (measuring 7 by 7 by 12 inches), it can still squeeze into a larger bag.

6. Petnet SmartFeeder, $129

This “bowl” technically fits into your pocket because it’s a pet feeding service operated through your iPhone. It allows you to manage your pup’s feeding schedule and portion sizes via food delivery straight to your doorstep.

It’s on the pricier side for sure, but it’s a great product for a tech-savvy traveling pup parent (nonetheless, we should note that it’s recommended for dogs weighing fewer than 50 pounds).

Happy and safe travels to you and you pup!
