I've got Koda drinking from a water bottle. However, I've heard that glass bottles are best, especially for eye stain prevention. The one I'm using is Lixit's plastic bottle. Is this fine? Or should I be buying a glass one? If so, do you all know of a great glass water bottle? I know Lixit has one out there, however, in order for it not to drip, you must fill the bottle up to the top. (This is quite wasteful, as I change the water out daily and I only use Desani water.) I also heard that the glass one with the black rubber stopper leaks a bunch.

What's your thoughts on this?

I use a regular water bottle (like Ozarka or Aquafina) which screws
into a nozzle that is really well made. It never drips.
I know someone posted the link to it on this board but I've misplaced it.
I improvised a hanger on my cupboard door
to attach the bottle. It will work on most cupboards.
It's meant to attach to a cage or crate. I just pulled the body of the
hanger down straight and attached it to that. Voila.
My dogs don't have eye stain from the bottles. I don't know about
the Lixit plastic. I've used glass in the past.

I use this water bottle. It sounds like the same one that Brit uses. It is great! It never leaks! We have found that smart water sports bottle work nicely. I know that other on the forum use this water bottle and recommend it as well.

I do have one of these as it was on my breeders web site store. However, I've noticed that Koda tends to cry at times and then starts biting the nozzle. When I walk up to it, it's been stuck and doesn't allow for an easy water flow. I always have to touch it a few times to get it flowing once again. I don't want to be gone and have the poor lil' guy begging for water. So I've switched to the lixit bottle and yet I wonder if the plastic is ok.
Hummmm...............

You mean the blue one gets stuck? I haven't had that happen. I do
wash the nozzle in soapy water every few days as they can get crumbs
or saliva built up on the nozzle. Maybe that's what causes the sticking?

That's the one I have and I don't seem to be able to find a bottle to fit it now. It also started leaking. Would love to get it working again.

I'd say glass one is probably better because most of the plastic water bottle is not made to be reused (especially those we use for convenience). I think most of the adapter is standardized, so both plastic/glass should fit just fine. About tear stain... I wish I can say glass will work the magic. I used glass bottle the day I got my pup... I don't see any difference regarding tear stain. Ugh! They eat the same food; drink the same water. One has tear stain and one doesn't.
