DIY raised dog food bowls

DIY raised dog food bowls

We’ve got two dogs, Hammer and Sydney. They’re lab mixes and are siblings from the same litter. They’ve been with us for about 11 years and my wife was there when they were born, so needless to say, they’re a big part of our family.

Our kids have the job of feeding the dogs everyday, and every time, they have to slide the individual dog bowls back into place on the floor before filling them.

After talking about it for a long time, I finally decided to help contain the food bowls so they wouldn’t move around and at the same time, raise the bowls up a little so the dogs didn’t have to reach down so far to eat. One note on raised bowls.. some dogs don’t handle this well because it’s easier to eat quickly, sometimes too quickly. If you try this with your dogs, you might want to test how they work with raised bowls before building a whole thing for it.

Luckily, our dogs are old enough that they’re not in that much of a hurry and are doing great with the raised bowls!
