At the time I came up with the idea of Puddles B Gone, we had four large dogs. A Doberman, two golden retrievers, a golden retriever mix, and two cats. We always seemed to fight water everywhere! It felt like a never-ending battle to keep the floors dry. You sure couldn’t wear socks, at least not for long. Not to mention the added risk of slipping and falling.
We tried everything trays, mats, bath towels, mopping, elevating and lowering the waterer, etc… I purchased between 10-15 different waterers, and they all had the same problem (water everywhere). The only ones I found that kind of worked didn’t hold enough water to last all day. We finally decided it was a problem we would have to live with and so we just mopped and complained.
I ended up falling off a roof and injuring my shoulder and had to have surgery. I was off work for over 6 months to recover. I had to sleep sitting up, so I slept in the recliner in the living room where the waterer was located. Wow, I got tired of changing my wet socks real fast!
