Poochables to Go Review – Portable dog food and water bowl

Poochables to Go is a brand new product so we feel special we got to test it out so early. Like I said, it’s perfect for trips to the dog park or dog beach, the lake, boating or agility class.

I drive my dog Remy to local running trails several times per week, and Poochables to Go is perfect for storing his water for when we get back to the car. The product works well for my two large dogs (60 and 65 pounds).

Here’s a video from The Pooch Company showing how the product works:

As you can see in the video, Poochables to Go is easy to use.

The bottom piece is a small food bowl that holds 9.5 fl ounces. To open, you just squeeze the bowl and rotate counter clockwise. It’s designed to lock in place, so when you reattach the food bowl you should hear a click sound.

This is a good place to store a few treats if you’re taking the product on a walk or to a dog training class. If you’re traveling with your dog for the day, it’s a good place to store a meal for your pup.

The water bottle piece comes with a removable washer inside the bottle’s nozzle. This is removable for proper cleaning so bacteria doesn’t accumulate inside the nozzle area.

To give your dog a drink from the bottle, just flip the bottle up and squeeze it to let out as much water as needed. My dogs did not hesitate to drink from the Poochables to Go bowl.

Cost of Poochables to Go

A Poochables to Go food and water system is $19.99 on its website.

More info about Poochables to Go

Gina Lucia Brucato is the founder and CEO of The Pooch Company, which launched in 2017. She said she launched the company with the mission to provide premium pet products that unite functionality and modern designs that pet parents are proud to own.

Poochables to Go is the company’s first product, and it was originally created to make outings with Gina’s rescue dog Huxley less stressful.

“I bring him with me everywhere,” she said. “Hiking, walks, restaurants, picnics, road trips, camping as well to the dog park and beach.”

Before Poochables to Go, Gina said she would pack Huxley’s food in plastic containers, his treats in plastic bags and bring water bottles and bowls.

Poochables to Go definitely makes these types of outings less stressful!

A few unique points about the product:


  • Holds food (or treats) and water
  • BPA free
  • Water bottle holds up to 15 fl oz
  • Handle for easy grip
  • Large drinking bowl
  • Can stand upright for storage
  • Lays flat when dog is drinking
  • 3 stylish colors choices
  • Food bowl designed to lock when not in use
  • Removable washer helps prevent leaks

I really like Poochables for outdoor activities like Remy’s obedience class (held outside in a field). The bottle stores just enough water for these types of shorter outings, and it’s not too heavy to lug around.

It’s perfect for agility class or trips to the dog park or dog beach. We will definitely also use this on road trips. Much easier than pouring water into a bowl while in the car!

  • I wish the product was slightly sturdier for my big dogs.
  • The food bowl clicks to lock in place, but I’d like it to be a bit stronger

Poochables to Go is a brand new product and I expect the company will continue to make improvements with it.

This food and water bowl was not a good choice while out running on the trails with Remy. It’s too big to carry for running. However, we typically drive to the trails so this is perfect to have in the car for Remy immediately after our runs.

  1. I would use this when taking my dog on outings for the day….like when she is going to the groomer or another dog friendly place.

    I have 2 similar style dog bowls but they have both broken in different ways – so I am interested in finding out how durable this is long term. (One will no longer release water into the tray…and the other started leaking.)

    1. I have two Yorkies, Cody and Roxy that travel with me ever. Parks , hikes, long rod trips and the poochables would make our trips easier!

  2. Terri A. Abbett

    I could use one of these when I take my dogs to our farm. No bugs in the water bowl or spilling water all over.

  3. I take my rescue to the dog park as much as I can. I really like that you can take it apart and clean it! The kind I have is worthless- already trashed it

  4. That is ingenious. I have a portable water bottle already, but this one is even better as it has the food bowl attached. Love it.

  5. I would take this portable water bottle on my hikes with my mutts. It looks easy to carry and it even holds food or treats. I think my dogs would love it.

  6. I love the compact size and convenience. As a dog walker in Florida, I always give the dogs a water break even during a short walk. The Poochables To Go food compartment would be perfect for treats as well.

  7. Love this idea for taking Clementine on a hike, or even a long walk in the hot summer. She loves exercise!

  8. I would love this for Spirit. When we go to the park on the weekends this would be perfect and truly convenient.

  9. Mary Alice Kropp

    I would use this when I take Lambeau to play and run in the big field here at our development. It looks perfect for carrying treats to work on some training, and the water bottle/dish combination looks great. No carrying a bottle AND a water bowl! I think we would use this in the car, too, when we take him with us. It would be a handy way to give him a drink or treat easily.

  10. Oh, how perfect for car trips for my girls, if we win we would like pink>> and they are little ladies that will be happy to share

  11. This looks AWESOME!
    My husband and I do a lot of traveling and our Duke (Boxer) always goes with us! We carry plastic bowls in the car with us for him and this would work out so much better! Also, my son just rescued a dog and plans on taking him on climbing and hiking trips, one of these will be great for my Grand-dog too!!!

  12. This would so handy for my GSD, Krypto, when I take him hiking. My pockets STILL smell like his treats from the last time we went out on the trail and we usually have to leave his water bottle in the car for when we get back

  13. I’d like to try this when I take them out to run in the timbers. It’s private property belongs to my cousin and the only off leash fun Otis has cause of his stranger danger issues. Right now I carry a knock off dollar store version of the snack ease which does the trick but is a little uncomfortable to carry.

  14. My dog — Phil — short for Philippides — the first person to ever run a marathon — would love to rehydrate with one of these after our early morning runs!

  15. Sandy Weinstein

    this one sounds better than the others i have seen. i normally take bottled water and a foldable cup with me. the one that i had years ago, leaked, so i never used it. it was also heavy when it was filled with water. i like having a cup attached to the water though, very convenient.

  16. This would be great for Sadie to use on car trips when we visit family and go to the beach. I really like how convenient and easy this looks to use.

  17. I take my dog to the park and on hikes, and I’d love to have an easy solution for dog food and water on long road trips. Once a year we go from Austin Texas to Billings Montana, and we bring our little black mutt with us all the way up. It’s always kind of a hassle to dig up her bowl and water, etc. Manageable, but this would definitely make things easier.

  18. @liam_the_coonhound

    I go hiking with my 4 dogs all the time. Bringing a water bowl is bulky so having one of these would be ideal.

  19. Love The Mutt. Very helpful and informative. Thank u keep up the great work. My three boys love watching me have control more and more.

  20. I’d love to win for my running/hiking/adventure partner Dream. Hydrating and fueling on the go looks like it would be a breaze.

  21. I have never even tried to understand dogs. So with these new lessons, I am learning quite a bit. I wish that I knew all this stuff from my last dog. I’ve only had two dogs. (I’m more of a cat person). My dog was given to me to help with the cattle; however, my husband has surgery when Dawg was just a pup and I never got him trained. So, with all of this help, I’m training him myself.
