That's the problem with plastic bottles.

There's a "shield" for water bottles.
Personally I'm looking for a bottle in glass.

Superpet makes a glass water bottle with a metal cap so it is completely chew proof. I don't know where you live, but Petsmart sells them in the stores and online. They work great for my boys who chewed through a plastic one once as well.

Be sure to start the water flowing after you fill the superpet bottle. Often water does not come out when the chin tries to drink unless you do. Lixit also makes a glass water bottle with a ball type drinking spout.
