Road Refresher Non-Spill Pet Bowl Colours

How It Works - Road Refresher has a floating plate inside which feeds enough water through for your dog to drink at all times, yet immediately restricts the flow whenever there is a surge of water from cornering, braking, kicking and so on.

Road Refresher has a Velcro base so fixes to carpets and has additional safe fixing pads for attaching the water bowl to most other surfaces.

Made from heat-resistant, toughened polypropylene, the Road Refresher is easily taken apart for cleaning and then clicks back together again. The bowls are offered in a choice of two sizes and various colours.

Read Natalie's story

Natalie’s story has all the great ingredients. Hardship, struggle against the odds, the underdog, a tall mountain to conquer and succeed in the end. From a struggling single mother on benefits, Natalie built a successful business only to lose it all to a T.I.A (stroke) but it wasn’t the end for Natalie, it was just the beginning.

Natalie’s sheer determination and insight won her three awards, to include innovator and ‘Inventor of the year 2008’, and ‘Best product development’. As the award ceremony was filmed by the BBC, Natalie appeared on the news and was soon whisked off to appear on BBC’s Dragons Den. With Natalie’s eyes set on conquering America, she saw this as the ideal opportunity to fast track her to where she wanted to be.

In front of the Dragons, Natalie’s dreams were shattered as she was told by Theo Pathetis, ‘if she even thought about going to America she would be eaten alive’ and by James Khan, ‘America is the graveyard of British businesses’. Natalie left the Den distraught and in tears after she was made to divulge details, and revisit the pain, of how she had suffered a stroke in earlier years and had lost everything in the process. Anyone else would have given up and heeded the words of the Dragons. Not Natalie. Amazingly, she brushed herself down, still believing they were wrong, packed a suitcase and headed for America, alone, still looking to fulfil her dreams, pushing aside all the negative comments the world had thrown at her, Natalie began the lonely and menial task of knocking on doors.

Ten months later, Natalie has set up her own warehouse and distribution centre in Chicago USA, her Road Refresher bowl has become the fastest-selling dog bowl on, she has streams of distributors and agents selling the now famous Road Refresher bowl across America and 26 countries around the globe. The Road Refresher has not only won the most prestigious award in its sector in the USA, Editors Choice Award 2009, making it the ‘Best pet product of the year 2009’ It has also won a seat of presidency in theWhite House as the Road Refresher bowl is now used by Bo, Obama’s new dog.

Natalie is often featured on television and in the press around the world and is a true success story. A successful businesswoman, inventor, an innovator but most of all ... an inspiration!
