Now this is something that I definitely needed and didn’t even think of making myself! When I saw this tutorial, I was all over it! Well, I actually got my husband to help! I’d wanted one of these for some time and now I have one!
I got so tired of my dog dropping food all over the floor, around his mat. I was always stepping on it when I walked in the kitchen and it was so aggravating! This remedied that problem. He actually keeps the food in the bowl now! Yay! It’s been awhile since I shared a project I made for our sweet dog, Charlie. He’s our super spoiled pup that pretty much runs the house.
A few months ago, I read that it’s important for dogs to eat from a raised dog food bowl. Placing a dog bowl at the proper height for a dog allows him to maintain proper standing posture and allows food to travel more efficiently down the digestive tract. I really had no idea about this but it totally makes sense. After reading that I realized we needed a raised dog food station for Charlie, and then I ran across this brilliant tutorial! We were in luck! I also wanted a way to hide his dog food so my husband and I built a dog food station with storage! This has been so convenient and Charlie just loves it! I think it made him feel extra special!
The dog food station was designed around a 20 quart storage bin (measurements: 17 x 11.5 x 6.25) I purchased. I highly recommend that you start with buying your storage bin to make things easier on yourself. The back of the dog food station is kept open so you can easily slide it back and forth when it’s time to feed your pup.
