How to choose your dog bowl

Dog bowls come in all sorts and kinds, but which one is the best for your dog? Find the answer in this blog post.

Dog bowls from stone

Our dog bowls marble and granite are made from natural stone. These materials have a lot of advantages. The dog bowls are heavier, so your dog is not able to push the bowl all around the house. These bowls can be used outside too, as they are resistant to different kinds of weather. Natural stone bowls also have the advantage to keep the water about 4 degrees cooler, so your dog is always provided with fresh and cool water. Cleaning these bowls is quite easy too, you simply put them in the dishwasher, and they will come out as new.

Dog bowls from bamboo

Bamboo is an extremely resistant and durable material, yet it is very light weight. Bamboo bowls are free of chemical additives or petroleum and therefore 100% safe for your dog. Unlike plastic bowls, where bacteria built up, bamboo bowls are anti-bacterial. On top of that is the material dishwasher safe.

If you’re looking for an eco-friendly and colorful bamboo bowl, our terrazzo dog bowl is the perfect match! The dog bowl also features a silicone base to avoid slipping.

Elevated dog bowls

Raised dog bowls ensure a better body posture during mealtime. It is easier for your dog to swallow the food and especially helps dogs with arthritis or joint problems as there’s less pressure on the neck and joints.

An elevated dog bowl is particularly recommended for senior dogs with health issues. If your dog suffers from gassiness or bloat, an elevated dog bowl is not recommended. If you’re thinking about changing to a raised bowl, consult your vet to check if your dog will benefit from this type of bowl.

If you want to buy an elevated dog bowl for your dog, it’s very important to buy the right size of bowl. To measure this, measure your dog from the ground to the start of his chest. The raised bowl should have the same height as your dog’s lower chest.
