Review retrieval timed out
I have read about elevated feeders being great for retrievers and finally decided to see what all the hoopla was about. (That and the fact that I broke my dog's ceramic bowl and needed to replace it.) My dog initially barked at the elevated bowls, most likely because he wasn't ready for a change after 9 years of bending to eat. Within a couple of days, he took right to the new bowls and now seems to eat more slowly, plus he actually wags his tail now when eating and drinking. The size of the bowls is great, especially the water bowl, since I don't have to keep filling that one up after my dog drinks. I also like the fact that even if I drop one of the bowls, it won't break.
All in all, a great purchase that I probably should have made a few years ago, but glad I finally did it. Worth the money.,Only had it a few weeks, but it appears to be well-constructed and it's certainly better looking than the many less-expensive, plastic alternatives out there. It's a good height for my almost-grown standard poodle. One design concern- the lip of each bowl rests on the edge of the wood cut-out, trapping water that's splashed out of the bowl - could lead to water damage over time.,Received the large elevated wooden feeder in a very timely manner. The dark cherry feeder blended well with the light/dark kitchen decore next to the dinette set. Set-up was easy and washed the containers before use. Water in one dish and a premium dog food in the other with ample container space. The height was just right since my Gordon Setter (Mac) went for it immediately and loves the water dish with cold fresh water. He can alternate very easily between eating and surping the water. Mac is three years old and loves to be out doors and also loves his personal kitchen table now! Quality of the set was excellent.,Although handsome and functional, the feeder came with a nick that was worked over with stain and varnish. I was not going to do anything about it since I figured eventually it would get scratched or nicked, but the next day the wood plank on top split on one side. I have reordered the item and asked that it be looked at before sent and returning this one.
