Elevated Feeders for Dogs FAQs
What are elevated feeders for dogs, and what are their benefits?
Elevated feeders for dogs are raised off the ground, typically at a height that is more comfortable for your dog to eat and drink from. They can help prevent strain on your dog's neck and back, improve digestion, and reduce the risk of bloating or choking.
What types of elevated feeders are available, and which should I choose?
There are many types of elevated feeders available, including plastic, ceramic, stainless steel, and wooden designs. The type of feeder you choose will depend on your dog's size, breed, and feeding habits. A larger dog may need a larger, heavier feeder to prevent tipping, while a dog with a sensitive stomach may benefit from a ceramic or stainless steel feeder that is easier to clean and disinfect.
Are there any safety concerns when using elevated feeders, and how can I prevent them?
Yes, there are some safety concerns to consider when using elevated feeders, such as the risk of choking, ingestion, or bacterial contamination. To prevent these issues, choose a feeder that is an appropriate size for your dog, clean it regularly, and replace it if it becomes worn or damaged.
Can elevated feeders help prevent joint issues in dogs?
Yes, elevated feeders can help prevent joint issues in dogs by reducing the strain on their neck and back when eating and drinking. However, it's important to choose the right height for your dog's size and breed to ensure optimal comfort and support.
Are there any special considerations for using elevated feeders in Canada?
If you live in Canada, it's important to choose an elevated feeder that is made with safe, non-toxic materials. Consider using a feeder with adjustable height settings to accommodate your dog's changing needs as they age or grow. Be sure to clean the feeder regularly to prevent the growth of bacteria or mold.
How can I train my dog to use an elevated feeder?
If your dog is not accustomed to using an elevated feeder, it may take some time for them to adjust. Start by introducing the feeder gradually, placing it at a low height and gradually increasing the height over time. Encourage your dog to approach the feeder and reward them with treats or praise when they do. Always be patient and consistent in your training efforts, and consult with a professional trainer if necessary.

Elevated or raised dog bowls help your dog eat more comfortably! They come with a stand that lifts the bowls up off the ground, making it easier for your dogs to reach their dog food and avoid gulping too much air as they lap up their dry kibble or wet food.
Giving your dog’s bowls a little lift can help relieve any strain on the neck or back, improve posture and help digestion. They’re especially helpful for dogs that suffer from arthritis or joint pain.
The Dogit Stainless Steel Set is a great option to keep your dog’s eating space tidy and reduce messy feeding habits. The stainless steel bowls are resistant to bacteria, which is especially helpful when feeding raw dog food.
Another popular choice is Messy Mutts Elevated Silicone & Wood Feeder. Designed with three different height options, this feeder can grow with dogs from their puppy to senior years. It comes with wooden legs that can be easily switched out to adjust the feeder according to your dog’s size.
