About Us

Stan_and_Ruth_GreenbergIt was a hot August night in 1998, and Stan and Ruth Greenberg were walking their adorable Schipperke, Black Bear, on a popular local walking path. As Black Bear was starting to droop in the heat, Ruth struggled to squirt some water from her drinking bottle into his mouth.

This was not the first time they encountered this problem, Stan realized. Looking around, he saw that many of the other dogs on the path were also showing signs of dehydration. There’s got to be an easy way to give dogs the water they need when you’re away from home, he thought. And that’s when the idea for the Water Rover™ portable pet water bowl was born. The rest, as they say, is history.
At G4 Ventures, we understand that your pet is a member of your family. We know how important it is to take good care of your much-loved companion – and we’re dedicated to bringing you products that will help you to do so.

water-rover-portable-pet-bowlG4 Ventures, Inc. is a privately-held company located in Orange County, California. Water Rover™, our first product, is available online as well as in hundreds of stores in the U.S. and Canada. We’re pleased that Stan’s invention, the Water Rover™, is helping hundreds of thousands of pet lovers to keep their pets hydrated and avoid the type of problem that Stan and Ruth had on that hot August night years ago.

Thank you for visiting!

  1. We’ve had our water rover for many years and it finally broke (closure tab strap). I excitedly found it on Amazon and it just came today. Since we bought our first one at the Fair directly from you guys, I was wondering if you still owned the company. So glad you do! And I was completely suprised at the story about walking your thirsty Black Bear – which I don’t remember you telling us at the time. Our Schipperke Izzy loves it too!!!

  2. I’m writing a review for the Santa Rosa Press Democrat (a good review), and would like to tell readers where they can buy the Water Rover in Sonoma County. Do stores in Santa Rosa carry it, for example? I will also point them to your website store, but for political reasons I’d like to tell them about local stores. Thanks.

  4. I first saw the water rover at a flea market in Fl. And of course thought it was the greatest !
    I live in Minnesota and have yet to see another one. I have mentioned it to a Chuck & Dons pet store where I shop, however, word apparently never traveled past the person I told at checkout.
    We take our dog on many car rides and trips we always have it on board. So easy to use even when traveling down the highway.
    Finally my plastic snapped from opening and closing. But still have been using by unscrewing the top and pouring into bowl. I have just placed an order for a new one.
    Love your product and so does Joe our now extremely spoiled rescue poodle.

  5. I Love my water Rover ~! I have had one for years~!
    Yes, I have had to replace them due to the strap closure breaking

    I have people comment on it all the time as they have never seen it before~!
    It is always with me and Isabelle~! If you fly just empty it out before you go thru the check bag.
