    Default Raised Bowls

    I have looked at previous threads and seen some of the beautiful ceramic bowls for the Cavaliers. Ceramic doesn't seem to work in our house, Graham has this habit of dropping them Now we are raw feeding, I purchased some normal stainless steel bowls, these are not really working as the food is still getting in their ears.
    I have found various sites, one is a Spaniel Bowl specifically made to keep ears out but I feel they are too large http://www.shopwiki.co.uk/Spaniel-Bowl-%3A-Dog-Dishes

    Plus I would like to raise the food dishes for Molly and Dougall and have found these sites. Does anybody have any experience of raised dishes and the holders as their is a large choice of different materials available. At the moment we just raise their dishes by standing them on something.

    I would like something a bit more attractive but practical. (I don't mean a new Graham )

    Not very decorative but I use the Ferplast party 14, 0.5 litre Spaniel bowls - they have a non slip ring underneath too.

    They hold the Classic stainless steel dishes, 5" size - which are perfect for Cavaliers.

    Margaret C on the board suggested it to me - thank you Margaret - works brilliantly

    Ive only ever used raised feeders for large dogs - we use them a lot at work for both water & food for anything labrador size & bigger (or really greedy dogs!!).

    I too feed raw & I have stainless steel bowls, very much like the spaniel bowls but not as tall & they have a rubber non slip edging - I also use a snood for Sparky as he gets everything in his ears! Lucy has much shorter ears so we havent had to resort to the snood for her yet.

    Thanks, I feel I cannot use a snood for either dogs as I am trying to avoid anythng touching their necks. I will probably have to trim their ears so they are a bit shorter. I had a sprinkler going in a flower bed last night, Dougall thought it would be a good idea to roll in the damp mud , so thinking about it the problem is more than just food getting in their ears.

    No I have never used snoods on dogs with SM - too much pressure.

    The hair scrunchies for humans are quite good though - you can gently pull their ears behind their heads and fasten them together there - keeps the ears out of the food but doesn't seem to cause them problems as long as you don't do them too tight.


    The main problem we have is that the wee darlings like to run off with the scrunchies when they've finished

    Default Spaniel Bowls

    Tania,

    http://www.spanielbowls.com/

    I am not sure if they have something like this in the UK but for those of us in the states.

    Ella has raised dog bowls for her SM and this is nice because you can put the food underneath.

    Hmmm good idea but I have one who would assume it is a food dispensing toy and manage to get the food out
