The Doggie Fountain, or Koolinater, connects to a standard water hose
When a dog steps on the paddle it sprays a jet of water into the pet's face
how's this for a brain wave: an Illinois-based design company has created a paw-activated water fountain for dogs.
The Doggie Fountain, dubbed Koolinator, attaches to a standard garden hose and provides thirsty pets with a supply of fresh running water to help them keep cool in hot weather.
It can also be used in place of a water bowl to make sure your pets are not left without a drink when you're at work. An Illinois-based design company has created a paw-activated water fountain for dogs.
Once a dog learns to press the Doggie Fountain paddle with their paw, the gadget can be used as a replacement to the water bowl for when owners are at work or out of the house and can't keep the bowl topped up
'Owners can just simply attach the innovative dog water dispenser to the end of their garden hose.
'When your dog steps on the paw switch, a stream of fresh drinking water is released.
'As a bonus you get to teach your pet a new trick and once it gets a hang of it you will be free of the task of filling its water bowl.
'The dog will finally able to enjoy a cool, refreshing drink of water whenever it feels like it.'
