Revolutionary designs pop up in the market, claiming to lift a burden off the shoulders of most pet owners by helping their animals get fed in a proper manner.
Seriously, how hard can it be to feed one's animal? Assuming one has acquired a healthy stock of dog food, each promising to deliver the recommended daily allowance of nutrition.
Despite the best foods, the mode of presentation plays an equally important role in ensuring the pet gets fed properly without incurring further work for the owner.
Cutting to the chase, how many owners have had to contend with overly enthusiastic animals which attack their food bowls thus upsetting the containers with most of the contents ending up on the floor? If hands are raised, it is time to relook its design and perhaps shop around for a more suitable vessel.
Many a pet supply shop carries dog bowls which promise to never tip over regardless of how voracious the animal may be during feeding time.
By making them heavyweight as well as from heavy duty materials, these containers should be able to last quite some time.
To avoid a bowl moving halfway across the floor, lining its base with a non-slip rubber sheet certainly helps.
There is no need to run out and get a specialized bowl as this should be easily done by the owner.
It is also best to get one made of stainless steel to avoid rust and unnecessary health issues.
Although ceramic versions sound attractive, they may only be suitable for animals with gentler tendencies.
For added convenience, travel bowls make ideal options to save carrier space.
Normally made of pliable yet heavy duty material to withstand liquids as well as dry foods, they are easily cleaned and then folded when not in use.
It certainly makes life a lot easier than carting around a metal feeder.
By combining dog bowls into a single feeding station, homes with multiple dogs can feed their animals at one go.
Alternatively, the single dog may have his food and drink served as though in a restaurant.
