Heavy-duty 4-quart stainless steel buckets are flat sided so they take up less room in the kennel and keep animals from getting behind the pail to flip the bucket over! With the hooks, we can attach the hooks to the kennel wire and for extra security use a brass snap to secure the handle. Dishwasher safe....however, we recommend you do not use a cleaner with
lemon or citrus. Citrus is acidic and is known to dull stainless steel
items, including utensils. The pail is easy to clean and keeps water cooler during hot summer days.
