First of all, you will want to know what type of dish works best for your best friend. Does he have long floppy ears that tend to get in the way when hr tries to eat? A bowl with a smaller diameter can solve this problem. Now his ears will fall along side his dish, rather than into it.
Does your dog’s dish mysteriously slide around the house? Are you always searching for it? Or hearing the constant and probably quite annoying dragging sound? Get a dish with rubber feet, and this problem will be solved. Fido will have to find a new game.
There are many styles and designs of pet dishes available. Today you can find a feeder with a lot of style to match any decor. These dishes are available in stoneware which is dishwasher and microwave safe, for those who like to warm their pet’s food. They also come in dishwasher safe stainless steel which is recommended by most veterinarians. Stainless steel is also the most sanitary choice, as it hold less bacteria.
How much does your dog eat, and how frequent are his feedings? This is a question you need an answer to when asking what size Dog Bowl you should get. Obviously for smaller dogs you would want a smaller bowl, and for larger dogs you will want a larger bowl. This will save you time, and keep your best friend happy.
“I have to be at work during the day” you may say, “but my dog needs to be fed, so I just leave extra food in his dish”. This could become a problem, simply because so many dogs will eat every bit of this food as soon as you walk out the door. Now he has an overfull belly and nothing for lunch.
There is a solution. Automatic feeders are programmable, and can be set to dispense food up to three times a day. Many come with digital display readers, so that you will know how much food your dog gets and how much is left before you must refill it. Some hold up to twenty pounds of food.
Fresh water is essential to your dog’s health. Automatic waterers are perfect for use while you are work, or even while you are at home. Just like the auto feeders, water is programmed to be dispensed at different intervals throughout the day. They also include a pump and charcoal filter. This ensures that your dog’s water is always fresh and safe for drinking.
Many dogs as they age suffer with hip and back problems. Bending down to get food and water can be difficult. For some, even impossible. The Double Dog Bowl is perfect for this situation. They come in a variety of heights to accommodate that of your dog. This eliminates any bending, and you dog may get food and water comfortably. They also come in lots of styles and colors, so you match them to just about anything.
If you travel a lot with “Fido”, there is even a collapsible, nylon, travel bowl available. Just fold it up, and go.
When buying new dog feeders for your pet, remember, you have many choices. One of the healthier choices in feeders is the elevated dog bowl available from any quality dog accessories retailer.
