Having a designated dog food area has become a priority in my home. We tend to move the bowls all over the place to either keep my daughters from playing with them or get them out of our way. Lately I’ve been so tired of tripping and kicking them over that it was finally time for a solution. So I made him a Raised Dog food Feeder!
My poor dog has had his food scattered across the floor; I don’t know how many times! I’ve felt so bad that I wanted to treat him to his own special place with his favorite food, Purina® Pro Plan® brand DOG FOOD.
Treating my dog to his favorite things means the world to me. He brings so much joy and happiness to us that he deserves it in return. Making sure he feels his best is always important. I’m just glad I have a dog food company that feels the same way. Purina® Pro Plan® brand DOG FOOD is Nutrition that Performs®! No wonder why they are the preferred food to keep all the Westminster Dog show champions on their game!
By purchasing the Purina® Pro Plan® at any Petco, you can enter in a chance to win a trip to next year’s Westminster Dog Show. Get all the rest of the details here:
I couldn’t agree with this video more, my dogs nutrition comes first. Since as we all know without good nutrition you won’t get that happy, healthy, and energetic dog. My little guy needs it more than ever since he now has 2 little girls to keep up with. So if you want to treat your 4 legged friend to something special then learn how I built this raised dog food stand.
The feeder was fairly easy to make, but please take in to account the height of your dog. My dog is small so the overall stand is only 8″ off the floor.
- 7 1/4″ x 18 1/2″ wood/poplar board (top)
- 1 1/2″ x 1/4″ poplar board cut into (2) 19″ and (2) 7 1/4″ pieces (sides)
- 1 1/2″ x 3/4″ wood strips cut into (4) 5 3/4″ and (4) 7 1/2″ pieces (legs)
- Hammer & nails or Nail gun & Compressor
- Sander or Sanding block
- Wood Glue
- Wood Putty
- Wood Stain
- Drill gun & 1/2″ drill bit
- Skill saw
- 2 dog food bowls with a lip edge
Step 1: Take the top board and trace around the bowls.
Step 2: Use your 1/2″ drill bit and drill a starter hole. For a faster approach you can drill several holes all around the circle then cut with your saw.
Step 3: Start cutting out the holes with your saw.
Step 4: It doesn’t need to be perfect since the bowl will cover it. But once cut, test your bowl to make sure it fits.
Step 5: With glue and and nail gun, add the sides to the top of the board. This will frame it out, and make it look more finished.
Step 6: Add the legs with glue and nails as well. The 5 3/4″ piece will be attached to the top and the 7 1/2″ pieces will extend.
Step 7: Finish the legs on both sides with the bottom connecting piece (5 3/4″).
Step 8: Putty all the holes and any exposed seams.
Step 9: Sand everything.
Step 10: Finish with stain or paint, then add your bowls. I also painted the exterior of my bowls to give them an extra pop of color!
I setup his new food station in our kitchen. It was the perfect place as it sits against a wall and out of any major walking paths. No more tripping over his bowls!
He already loves it, and it’s the perfect custom height for him. Of course I love it too, since it sits with the rest of my decor.
So next time your at Petco make sure to pick up a bag of the Purina® Pro Plan® dog food. It comes in several varies that will suit your dogs needs. My little guy is pretty small so we prefer the Purina® Pro Plan® Focus in the Adult small breed formula. The #1 ingredient is real chicken and has natural probiotic fiber, sourced from wheat bran, that helps promote digestive health.
You can find it in the dog food section, located by brand.
Have you ever been to the Westminster Dog show? Was it incredible? I can only imagine how much fun it would be, that’s why you need to make sure to enter for next year!!!
