Refresh your Dog Guide with Products from Heininger Automotive

As a dog guide user, I'm always on the lookout for items that will make our lives easier, especially while traveling for long periods of time. I like the following products, sold by SmartHome, made by Heininger Automotive.

The first item is the Heininger Automotive PortablePET WaterBoy, a travel water bowl for dogs, which holds up to 3 quarts of water and will not splash. This WaterBoy container offers both comfort and function, designed to help pets during travel and is highly dependable.

Item two is the Heininger Automotive PortablePET PortaBottle. It holds up to 20oz of water and has a flip down bowl for drinking.

Now that your guide has water, we need to provide some food. The PortablePet FoodTote is the perfect food and drink container for day-tripping dogs. Just pop off the handle and the food and water bowls slide off the ends of the food container. Unscrew the top of the food container to remove the water canteen. Compact and lightweight, the Food Tote is made of food-grade high-impact materials. FoodTote includes a 1-8 cup food container with two bowls and one water canteen.
