For Dogs: Subtract 6″ from the top of their back. With your dog standing, measure up to the shoulder and subtract 6 inches.

Because stainless steel is stain-proof, rust-resistant and dishwasher-safe, stainless steel dog bowls are a durable and low-maintenance choice. The easiest type of bowl to keep clean – and also the safest bowl for your dog to eat and drink from – is stainless steel. This material will not leach potentially dangerous chemicals into your dog's food and water, like some plastics, aluminum, poorly glazed pottery, or old ceramic dishes.
Powder coating color onto our stainless steel metal bowls is a nontoxic, environmentally friendly finish that is applied and then baked to cure the coating. Our powder coated bowls are resistant to stains, chips and dents but should be hand washed to insure the finish. This applies to our color bowls as well as our gold powder coated bowls. All of the powders used in powder coating processes are non-toxic, non-volatile, and completely safe.
No, in fact, our Clear Double Dog Bowl Feeder with Glass Bowls uses impact and chip resistant laboratory Duralex bowls. Our glass bowls are dishwasher and microwave safe, ideal for everyday use. What better way to add clear and modern to your home?
Elevated dog bowls allow dogs to dine in a more upright position, that helps the dog swallow more easily and takes some strain off their neck and back. When a dog has a case of canine arthritis, joint pain, or immobility issues, eating with a head-down posture can cause excess strain and pain. By raising your dog's food bowl, your pet no longer has to experience those pains and strains because they do not have to lean down as far to eat.
