Pet Product Review – Ruff Bowl – Portable water dish & poop-bag carrier

Ruff Bowl on Kickstarter

This is a new invention that’s trying to make it to the market and we think it’s ingenious!

The brainchild of Nicole and Sammy Lopez, Ruff Bowl is a plastic water bowl that clips on to most retractable leashes and provides a spot to insert the top of your dog’s used poop bag so you don’t have to carry it around. How handy would that be for walks, hikes or trips to the dog park?! You could even stash your keys, coins or training treats in it! A great idea put into action by 2 regular ol’ dog lovers who saw a need and came up with a solution!

Because the cost of manufacturing is so high, Sammy and Nicole have joined Kickstarter, “…the largest funding platform for creative projects in the world,” in hopes of raising the funds needed to put the Ruff Bowl into production by March 19, 2011.

You can help bring Ruff Bowl to the public by pledging a little “kickstart” cash at Kickstarter.com and/or by spreading the word with a post on your blog. Ruff Bowl Kickstart pledges start as low as $5 and also serve as a pre-order for your very own Ruff Bowl.

The Secret Shopper Team wishes Nicole and Sammy the very best of luck and can’t wait to do a review on the Ruff Bowl once it’s available for purchase!
