I bought this adjustable dog bowl set with the 5 quart bowls because we have two large dogs. I chose this style because we also have a jack russell and I figured we could fit his bowls underneath. That part works great for space saving. The rack is sturdy enough, but I've found when you fill the bowl with water, it leans over because obviously, water is heavier than kibble. I even tighten the knobs as tight as I possibly can but it still lists to the left. Also, one of the bowls came with a huge dent in it, but that didn't really bother me. The stand has two separate knobs: one to hold the rings that the bowls go in, and one you put on top of the bowls to keep them in place. THAT part is a little inconvenient because you have to unscrew the knob just to get the bowls out. But I completely understand the purpose of it, so that's cool - just trying to give a thorough review. All in all, I am happy to have purchased a product that elevates the food for our large dogs, and happy that it is not a bulky stool type stand, so would recommend this to others. I bet the bowl wouldn't teeter if it wasn't the 5 qt size (which is the largest.)
The set up was problematic. You need to remove the height adjustment screws every time you want to remove the bowls and it's a pain. We finally just took them off completely. The weight of the water made that bowl tilt so we had to put in a shim. Now the other bowl is tilting as well. We have a very tall greyhound and he needs to have his food/water raised and this looked like the perfect solution. Alas, with tweaking it is working although we now have to add a second shim on the other side. I can't imagine what the people who came up with this design were thinking!
Very flimsy, bolt threads that attach vertical beam to base were machined incorrectly causing the threads to strip as I attempted to connect the pieces. Bowls lean and metal loops bend very easily. I own 14in (withers) American Bullys. Weighing 35-50lbs
This is the very best raised stand and bowls I have ever owned. It can raise to any height which makes my Labradoodle very happy. Very easy assembly. Very good quality and lasts for many years. I now have 2 and keep one in the trunk of my car to use on trips.
This has been really helpful for our aging German Shepherd; he no longer has to bend to the floor to reach his food and water. Assembly was easy but I would advise adding a lock washer or two when putting it all together as the bolts sometimes come loose causing movement which then equates to noise metal clanging with the bowls and the rack. When they're tight, it's quiet and it's a perfect product.
We have a very large Irish Setter who, before we purchased this product, would lay down while eating. I have since learned that a dog digests food much better if it can eat while standing up. I highly recommend this product. It worked for our dog.
Perfect for our older dog. He had a hard time bending over as he's getting older. He was losing weight because it was difficult for him to eat. Thought we'd give this a try and I'm glad we did. It makes it so much easier for hima nd he's gained his weight back and seems a lot happier....and so are we!
