The Maze Pets Auto Pet Dish Pet Feeder with Automatic Lid Sensor is a clever product that takes some of the mess and smell out of feeding your dog and makes his eating area a neater, fresher, cleaner place.
How it works: It’s quite simple really, just install the batteries and fill the food area and turn the unit on. Once on, a sensor at the front of the Maze Auto Pet Feeder Dish is activated when ever your dog stands within one foot of the front of the bowl. This sensor, once triggered, causes the lid to open — now mind you, the lid doesn’t open silently. Your dog will hear it and if he’s not used to it and if you don’t make it a fun and exciting thing by first teaching him all about his new bowl, it just might scare him away! So be sure to train him with treats until he’s well aware that once the lid is open, it’s meal time!
About three to five seconds after your dog has eaten from the Maze Pets Automatic Pet Feeder and has left the area, the sensor will then close the lid. The sensor is adjustable and the best feature of all is that the inner “food bow” is made of stainless steel which means it’s easy to clean and more sanitary than any plastic pet feeder. Furthermore, the Maze Pet Feeder Auto Sensor Dish can be used for water instead of food as well.
So why do you need a pet dish with an automatic lid? Well, covered food tends to stay more moist and fresh than food that sits out — this is especially true for canned food an kibble that’s had moisture added to it in the form of broth or water. It also helps keep that “dog food smell” contained to just the dog food rather than the entire area.
While cats are able to use the Maze Automatic Pet Feeder with Sensor Lid, the noise it makes upon opening may scare the cat away and if this happens, by the time he realizes the food is exposed and returns to the bowl, the lid may be closed or closing. It’s much more suited for dogs who are easier to train and to “celebrate” the lid opening by eating everything inside! The Maze Pet Feeder features a sleek, contemporary, tasteful, white design and will look terrific with any décor.
