When it comes to pet water fountains or drinking bowls, I always recommend stainless steel or ceramic over plastic. Dirt, gunk, and germs tend to seep into the porous material of plastic drinking bowls and cannot be easily washed off or disinfected. Plastic drinking bowls may possibly contaminate your dog’s drinking water as well, especially if you get a cheap plastic dog drinking bowl with toxic chemicals in the paint or material.
The Drinkwell 360 Pet Fountain comes in both plastic and stainless steel versions, and is the most popular Drinkwell pet fountain model for good reason.

My dogs loved the Drinkwell 360 Pet Fountain! They are very comfortable drinking next to each other from the same bowl, and the option of drinking from the stream or the bowl suits their various preferences.
It’s been 2 weeks now and the filter does an excellent job of picking up food particles and other sediment.
An annoying issue encountered when using the Drinkwell 360 Pet Fountain is that the rubber feet on the fountain are not strong enough to prevent it from sliding around, especially when water splashes out and the floor gets wet. Many fellow users recommended purchasing the Drinkwell Pet Fountain Mat to go with the fountain.
If you have a big dog at home, the Drinkwell 360 Pet Fountain isn’t the best choice. While it’s large enough for a few pets to drink at one go, it’s designed with the spout in the middle – effectively reducing drinking space – and is of a low height. Instead, you should read my review of the Drinkwell Big-Dog Pet Fountain, which is a wonderful drinking fountain for large dogs.
Here are the most frequently raised points in Amazon customer reviews of the Drinkwell Big-Dog Pet Fountain:
- Adjustable flow control is really useful
- Easy to dismantle, assemble, and clean
- Sound of water is soothing and not too noisy
- Heavier particles/sediments settle at the bottom and don’t get filtered
The Drinkwell 360 Pet Fountain is an excellent choice if you have multiple pets at home. Sharing the same pet water fountain means they all get fresh, clean drinking water while maintenance on your part is reduced. No wonder pet owners love Drinkwell pet fountains!
