The 10 Most Convenient Collapsible Pet Travel Bowls

The 10 Most Convenient Collapsible Pet Travel Bowls


Traveling with pets requires special items to bring along that make the trip doable. The right pet bowls are necessary for any pet you take with you on vacation, on the plane, to the beach, or anywhere else you’ll be for a long period of time. To stay as mess-free as possible while enjoying your travels is important. And possible!

Collapsible travel pet bowls work if you buy the right ones. Whether it’s a kitty cat, dog, or any other loving pet you’re bringing alone, they’ll need something clean and practical to eat and drink out of. Make it easy on them (and you) and always carry a good collapsible travel bowl. Here is our list of the most convenient ones you can find online right now!

Alfie Pet by Petoga Couture

Alfie Pet by Petoga Couture sells convenient collapsible pet bowls for only $12.99 on Amazon. These travel bowls are great for long trips or short walks. They’re ideal for food and water as well. In the photos below, you can see how they look when they collapse.

Look how flat they get! The non-porous material ensures cleanliness and you can throw them in the dishwasher for a good wash.

2Good2Go Take Out Collapsible Pet Travel Bowl

This next bowl is actually pretty awesome. It’s made out of fabric but you can use them as water bowls. This is because they’re made with “strong-sided fabric.”


The fabric is easy to wipe clean, and they’re listed at the unbelievable price of $2.59. Still, it doesn’t hurt to check out coupon sites like Knoji to see if you can find any Petco promo codes to make the price even cheaper.

3Pet Life Collapsible Travel Water and Food Pet Bowl

No more getting the bowls confused, this handy bowl set comes with a food bowl and separate water bowl. They’re both collapsible and made with waterproof nylon, so nothing is spilling out of these.


Made specifically for dogs, the Pet Life food and water bowls make it easy to take a trip with your pup. The bowls come in a pouch with a strap and clip that you can easily attach to your backpack or purse.

Northern Outback Travel Pet Bowl Set

Here’s one for the kitties! This next bowl set is ideal if you’re traveling with small pets. Though the Northern Outback Travel set works for any sized pet, not all bowls work for all pets.

Since it seems like travel bowls are always made for dogs, this is a good one to keep in mind if you’re a pet owner who travels with cats. The description said this set is also good for rabbits and other small pets. The set comes with a pouch that you can attach to anything you’re traveling with. It doesn’t take up much space and the color goes with anything.


This one is also dishwasher safe!

Collapsible Pet Silicone Bowl

If you love colorful pet accessories, check out the silicone pet bowl set from Walmart.

These simple pet bowls have a cute dog design as well as a heart cut-out on the handle. These are for the true dog lover! Take these everywhere you guys go together.

Tall Collapsible Pet Bowl/Carrier

Most bowls come in single serving size, but you can also get a larger sized collapsible pet bowl that doubles as a carrier for large amounts of food.

The tall collapsible pet bowl is a useful travel bowl set that comes with a pouch to carry it in.

You can find good coupons at aforementioned Knoji and also RetailMeNot for MiniInTheBox!

Beco Bowl

Beco has the cutest branding when it comes to pet stuff. They sell rope toys, toy balls, dog toys, and lots more with that cute little bear on the packaging. Now they offer a collapsible pet bowl perfect for any occasion.

It’s made from silicone which means it’s non-toxic. Beco is big on environmental health, so they believe in creating products that are biodegradable, BPA & phylaphate-free, and made with natural materials.

Ruffwear Quencher

Hydration is so important for our pets. This is why Ruffwear made a convenient collapsible water bowl. This product is made specifically to keep your dog hydrated.

Sold are REI, this collapsible bowl is a quality product made for quenching any dog’s thirst. It’s stable bottom design means it can be used anywhere, including in a vehicle. The materials used are environmentally conscious recycled polyester. This thing is waterproof so it won’t be spilling from the seams. Unlike the other dishwasher safe collapsible bowls on the list, this one is machine washable.

REI is awesome but since they sell such high quality stuff, it can be expensive. So, before you shop check out Groupon since they’re always offering pretty good deals on REI items.

Foldable Pet Bowl

Taking up the smallest space is probably the foldable pet bowl from iHeartDogs.

This waterproof bowl is useful for on-the-go and it folds up in the most small and discreet way. This smaller water bowl is travel sized for those that are going on short trips or don’t mind multiple water breaks along the way.

Stand Up Collapsible Bowl

Here’s one that’s pretty nice. If your dog loves stand up food and water bowls, this collapsible stand up bowl might be the choice for you. It stands up for a stable eating and drinking session and then collapses to a flattened version that can easily fit in your backpack or larger sized purse. This is great for hotels where you can just pull it out and leave it out as long as your stay. It could also be the permanent water and food bowl you use at home that you take with you when you travel. It comes in a few different fun colors, to choose the one that matches your home or the one that catches your eye. There’s many options with this one!


Collapsible pet bowls is just where it’s at. No more cleaning up spilled water or trying to put kibble on napkins you had in your purse. Collapsible bowls are a stress-reliever when it comes to pet care. It’s time to enjoy your time with your loved companion and stop worrying about messes and pet accessories that take up space. Now go out and have fun with Rover or Fluffy!

    I have never had pets. They would be difficult to have them while traveling and just as difficult leaving them behind. But any if these things, I imagine, would surely help!

    It’s sadly been a while since I’ve needed one of these, but things have definitely improved since I had to wrap up the normal bowl in a bin bag to take it one the road. Great to see there’s so much choice, and something I will definitely remember when we have the pleasure of a bounding hazard on four paws again.

    Very interesting, I’ve never travelled with any of the dogs, they’re a nightmare just at the park, I think it would a bad move taking them overseas!
