Aqua Pure Breed started following me on Twitter, introducing me to another entry in the bottled water for dogs category. This product offers innovative user-friendly packaging; it comes in a wide-mouthed plastic bottle that serves as a bowl. In addition to plain spring water, Aqua Pure Breed comes in two enhanced varieties, one for joint support and one claiming to support healthy skin and coat. The only package size now available is 8 ounces, and the plain variety comes with either a pink or blue top.
The company website has a retailer finder which wouldn’t function for me, but their Facebook page has announcements of new retailers, most of which are in the company’s home state of California. Home delivery of 48 bottle cases of Aqua Pure Breed is available for $59.95.
The company website notes product launch in spring 2008, but other materials note that the product became available at retail in the summer of 2009. Their Twitter and Facebook streams mention high-profile dog events, like the AKC Invitational shows taking place this weekend in Long Beach. The company has also publishes the Active Dog Guide which identifies dog-friendly places in several US locations and it actively encourages people to includes their dogs in more activities and businesses to become more dog friendly toward both their employees and guests.
What I like about this product is the packaging, which eliminates the need to take a separate bowl when traveling with your dog. I might argue that 8 ounces may not be adequate for every dog, so I would hope to see larger bottles offered in the future. Aqua Pure Breed promotes the bottles as disposable; they are recyclable as well. No mention was made as to whether the products are approved for human consumption.
