New Olly Bottles

Two years ago I blogged about an awesome product from OllyDog called the Olly Bottle.

Click HERE to read my review.

Well, our first Olly Bottle bit the dust a few months back when I accidentally slammed it in the car door (whoopsie) so we upgraded to a couple of new ones the other day.

Yep, I said a couple because OllyDog now has two sizes in their Olly Bottle.

Olly Bottle 1

We replaced our 1 liter bottle with this fantastic light blue and grey combination and added a little nugget to our Olly Bottle family with the lime green 600 ml bottle.

I love these bottles because they’re perfect for a quick swig of water when I need it and even more perfect for Teton when he’s thirsty and we’re out on a walk, hike, or snowshoe trek.

Plus, they’re a great value. The 1 liter bottle is $13 and the 600 ml bottle is $10.

Just because…here are a few photos of Teton’s excursions this week.

Olly Olly (Oxen Free?)

This isn’t a blog about oxen.  Though I think they are lovely animals, I don’t know much about them.  So, I’ll stick to dogs.  😀

Check out this sweet new water bottle from Olly Dog.

Teton photobomb!

It’s called the OllyBottle and it’s part water bottle (for you) and part removable bowl (for your dog).

The easily removable bowl fits snugly and securely on the side of the water bottle, not compromising any of its 32 oz capacity.

After taking a swig of water yourself, simply remove the bowl from the side of the bottle and pour some water in it for your pooch.

Teton isn’t usually good about drinking water on a hike or run.  He’s either not thirsty or too distracted (I think the latter is the case 90% of the time).  I had a feeling that the typical travel bowls I was using on our hikes may have been affecting him, too.  In general, it seems like he has to put his face down too far into the bowl to get a quick drink.  The OllyBottle is fairly shallow which made it easier for Teton to access water.  He drank much more willingly and frequently from the OllyBottle than he has from typical travel bowls that I’ve used in the past.

This is the Ruff Wear Bivy Bowl.  Don’t get me wrong – it’s great and I’ve used it on many a camping trip.  For a run or quick outing, though, it’s just a touch too deep and cumbersome.

The Little Blogger and I have used the OllyBottle twice now.  Once on a short trail run and once at the dog park.  When I say short trail run, I mean real short because technically, it was my first ever trail run.  All that rough terrain makes running a lot harder.  I got pretty winded by the end.

Hence the resting pose.

OK, poses.

Ahem, poses, Teton.

I really shouldn’t scowl like that.  I hear those wrinkles might stick.

After a couple of crazy dogs, Teton was definitely ready for some water from the OllyBottle.

I’m happy to say that the OllyBottle delivers.  It’s easy to use, well made, and non-cumbersome for both casual and high-energy activities.

Did I mention that it’s only $13?  That’s cheaper than most regular (non-dog-friendly) water bottles!

It’s also dishwasher safe.  Be still my heart.

Before we go, here are a few photos of Teton enjoying a doggie latte from Starby’s.

If only I could get away with eating an entire cup of Starby’s whipped cream…
