Feeding: your dog's favourite time

Mia-&-Charlie Step-4-happy-dog Alfie

If there’s one moment a day that dogs look forward to more than their walk, it’s feeding time. This can be a frantic rush to devour those tasty treats. Most dog owners will be familiar with the sight of their best friend pushing the dog bowl around the floor as they attempt to get every ounce of flavour from their tea.

Everyone feeds their dog to what suits them and their lifestyle, here at BIGPAWS.CO we are German Shepherd owners and over the years have picked up some tips along the way:

  • This maybe a rarity but it’s best not to leave food lying in a bowl for your dog to eat anytime they like. It pays to have set eating times which your dog will learn to expect. That’s better for the dog’s health and can stop them putting on weight by overeating or developing bad feeding habits.
  • Choose a dog food that is suitable for your pooch. You should also measure out the food for your pet so that it gets the same portion on each occasion.
  • If you have more than one dog, you have no doubt experienced one fast eater who then descends on the other’s bowl. You need to watch this and stop the dog from sneaking a few extra snacks.

Wall Mounted Dog Bowls

If you’re fed up with your dog shoving the bowl across the floor as it tries to eat, then the solution is to get a wall mounted dog bowl. These are easy to install and make a lot of sense. They ensure your dog gets used to the routine of eating in the same place each day and they’re great for keeping your kitchen tidy and don’t want to trip over the bowl when you’re heading down to raid the fridge in the middle of the night.

BIGPAWS.CO dog bowl holders are made from a lightweight but sturdy material which means they can easily hold a water bowl. It takes just a few minutes to screw the bracket to the wall and then slide the holder in place. When you need to clean it easily lifts out of the holder.

We are committed to produce a product that we know pet owners will love and appreciate for years to come. That's why our holders come with a lifetime swap-out warranty so you can rest assured that you're not only getting a good quality product with good quality recyclable packaging but it's all backed up with good quality customer service.
