Pet Drinking Buckets

sketch of finished water bucketSome pets live outdoors so they need a water supply. The idea I came up with is a reasonable idea and takes less labour to keep water good. We bought a 5 gallon bucket made of plastic, with a lid to keep on at all times. We cut a house shaped hole in the side, this is access of the pet to drink. If you do this you will lessen objects falling in the water and less green forming in the bucket. The size is determined according to the pet you have. We have a large dog in a pen.


Total Time: One hour I cut slow

Source: Nono



  1. With the drill you make the first hole to start cutting from.
  2. With the felt pen you draw the line to follow around.
  3. With the knife you cut along the line to make an opening.
  4. Rinse all things away and fill to needed amount of liquid.

I think this is a really good idea, and not just for dogs. I'm not sure how well it would work for our home, because our dog's head is just too large to fit into the size hole you are indicating (scale of the drawing).

I think this is a great idea. I'm hoping that your dog still gets lots of love and attention living outside. There's a dog down the street who's alone all day and all night and no one pays attention to him.


But I figure if you're making sure his drinking water is clean you're probably taking care of him or her well. I will try this in the summer when the dogs drink a lot outside.
