If your best friend happens to have four legs and a waggling tail, chances are one of the many available dog feeders would help to make your life easier. These convenient pet accessories allow pet owners to worry less about their furry loved ones receiving the proper amount of food on a daily basis.
By filling their automatic pet feeder with quality pet food, many dog owners find that they need only refill it and clean it once a week – this of course depends on the size and quantity of pets in the household as well as the size and style of dog feeders. What could be easier than filling once and not having to worry about feeding your dog again for days?
How many times have you hit the “snooze button” on your alarm clock only to open your eyes and realize you’ve left yourself with only 15 minutes to dress, brush your teeth, walk your dog and leave the house? Well, you’re not alone! Dog feeders take the pressure off of dog owners who are pressed for time in the mornings. As long as you check them at night to be sure they’re full and clean and ready to go, then when you wake up in the morning, you’ll be ready to go as well!
As mentioned, dog feeders come in many shapes and sizes and are made from various materials such as plastic, ceramic and stainless steel. They wide variety of designs also means a wide price range as well. The style that best suits your needs will first depend on the size and amount of dogs in your home. There are some dog feeders that are quite large and have a capacity to hold a good amount of dry dog food. For smaller dogs there are of course smaller dog feeders which are designed to hold less quantities of
food. One basic element that all dog feeders have in common is convenience. They allow pet owners to get home late from work or wake up late in the morning without worrying that Rover is home starving. Of course, they can’t walk him for you but at least you’ll know he’s been well fed until you can get to him.
One important note regarding dog feeders is that they do need to be kept clean at all times so that bacteria or small bugs and insects aren’t given the ability to infest your pet’s food supply. Also, having a dog feeder won’t provide fresh water that your pet needs on a daily basis. If you can’t provide fresh water at least every morning, then consider purchasing a pet fountain as well. These fountains will give you some freedom but like any other pet feeding and watering accessory, need to be kept clean at all times.
