Mr. Peanut’s Collapsible Dog Bowls Review

We’ve been using the collapsible dog bowls from Mr. Peanut’s during our adventures like trips to the park, long walks and trail running. They are made of silicone and can be used for food or water. The bowls collapse flat to a disc shape and easily fit in a small bag or pack.

Mr. Peanut’s Collapsible Dog Bowls Review

My thoughts on the bowls:

I really love these bowls! They’re durable, sturdy and lightweight. I can easily stick them in my bag when we go to the park or on long walks. They are also nontoxic and dishwasher safe, according to the company.

I’ve started wearing a small backpack for carrying my own water on trail runs. My weimaraner Remy goes along when I run, and now I stick the regular-sized Mr. Peanut’s bowl for him in my pack.

You can see the two sizes (regular and XL) in the pic. I actually prefer the regular, smaller size since it takes up less space.

The bowls come in two sizes. The XL size is 7” wide at the top and holds 4 cups. The regular size is 5” wide at the top and holds 1.5 cups. They both pack flat and take up very little room. They also come with carabiner clips in case you want to clip the bowls to the outside of your pack.

Our dogs are going on a roadtrip with us over the Fourth of July and these will be their travel bowls. We also plan to take Remy camping. Again, these are the perfect bowls.

$8.95 for a set of three regular bowls. Click here.

What’s unique about the bowls?

The bowls collapse flat (like a frisbee). They are made of silicone which makes them very durable but lightweight and easy to clean. They’re also nontoxic and dishwasher safe.

Mr. Peanut’s donates a percentage of its gross profits to animal welfare organizations. I’m not sure what percentage but will update once I find out.

Pros of Mr. Peanut’s collapsible bowls:

  • Two sizes (one holds 4 cups and one holds 1.5 cups)
  • BPA free / nontoxic
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Lightweight and great for the park, camping, hiking or travel
  • Great price!
  • Easy to rinse/clean
  • Can clip to the outside of your pack


  • Some people might want a size in between the two existing sizes. There is quite a bit of difference between 1.5 cups and 4 cups.
  • You still have to pack the water (or food) in a separate container, obviously.

I would recommend the bowls for …

These bowls are great if you go on long walks or hikes with your dog in warm weather. Since they’re lightweight I plan to bring them on my trail runs with Remy. He needs water on these runs and I prefer the Mr. Peanut’s bowls over the Guply bottle I was using for him.

The Mr. Peanut’s collapsible bowls work well for the beach because sand rinses off easily. They’re also great for taking to the dog park, traveling or almost any adventure.

I really, really like these bowls and the price and highly recommend them to any dog owner.

The bowls are available on Amazon HERE.

Hey Lindsay I really liked your article. Me and my wife are in the market to buy a dog bowl and I found your article really informative. You just might convinced me to buy one, so thanks!

I really like that these particular bowls are dishwasher safe and made of non-toxic material! I might just give them a try ;-)

i have a small one, not this brand though, but i love it. i carry it with me when i go with the girls, great for water and for traveling. i got mine several yrs ago. they even make them for the kitchen. i cant believe how expensive they are. seems like the price is going up and not down since there is more competition.

I havent used these particular bowls but every dog owner should have a similar bowl and a couple of bottles of water stashed in their car now that its summer. Even a quick drive to pick up the kids can turn into a longer outing and its helpful to be able to easily give dogs water. I've always preferred the smaller size bowls for travel because its less wasteful to refill the bowl if needed then throw out a big bowl full. That means I have to carry less water.

While I really appreciate the sentiment behind communal water bowls in some of the woods where I walk, no way am I letting my dogs share unwashed bowls with who knows how many other dogs and wild critters.

Yes, all good points. These would be great to keep in the car. And I know what you mean about the communal bowls. I let my dogs drink from them sometimes but it makes me nervous.
