Collapsible Dog Food Bowls Make It Easier To Travel With Fido

If you are hiking or camping or simply going on a road trip with man's best friend then you should consider gettign one of these top rated travel dog food and water bowls.

The bowl featured to the left is made of a waterproof fabric making it perfect for water or for food and when your dog is done eating it collapses in on itself flat taking up no more room than a shirt. I've featured a few other excellent travel dog bowls lower on this page as well.

My Favorite Collapsible Travel Dog Food Bowl

Everyone has different tastes so you my disagree with me on this but I love the fabric travel bows for dogs because they are the easiest to pack away. They tend to be waterproof which makes them great for water or for wet food and then they can be squished into any suitcase with little thought. As noted above the Jardin Fabric Travel Dog Bowl is my favorite. Check it out below.

This collapsible bowl is super small when folded up and it is very light. It should however be perfect for most dogs including the largest breeds.


Personally I think the good quality fabric dog food bowls are the best for travel, hiking camping, etc. They are much more versatile than plastic bowls in my opinion and they are easier to pack. below I've featured a number of the best selling fabric travel dog bowls on the market. These are top rated products and they are very affordable and handy.
