This elevated food/water stand is great for big dogs. We have an olive green one from 8 years ago for our older pooch, and now this black and grey one for the new puppy. Removable stainless bowls are nice for cleaning purposes, and we never had the old stand tip over when the "teenage" dog stood on it (and that's with the legs empty of water or sand). All in all a great design and quality build that will stand up to big dogs for the life of the dog.
I purchased this feeder for our 72lb Black Lab mix and the height is perfect for him. The feeder is sturdy when the legs are filled and doesn't wobble when our dog eats or drinks. I do have a problem with the stainless steel food dish though - it spins and moves around in the holder when my dog eats. This makes him uncomfortable enough to stop eating and getting more than half way through his dinner without the dish banging around in the plastic holder is proving to be an issue. (My dog is a rescue and tends to get freaked at strange things!) I tried a damp towel between the bowl & holder but is was too bulky. I'll look into putting a rubber washer or something on/under the dish to resolve the problem. Needs to be something that still allows for the bowl to be removed for daily cleaning. The water dish doesn't have this problem as the water weighs it down enough and he laps at it with no problem. I was hoping the food bowl issue wouldn't bother him after a few days and he would enjoy the benefits of eating at a comfortable level. He hasn't adjusted yet and needs a lot of encouragement to eat. Overall the holder is a great design, but for me the food dish need a stabilizer to hold it in place.
I am very happy with our purchase of this feeder. It is very tall and great for large TALL dogs. We have a large black lab and he loves it. At first he was a bit hesitant to eat out of it because I think he thought it was a table and he is not allowed to take food from the table. But I lead him to it and showed him the food and that it was OK. He doesn't hesitate any longer. Be careful when picking size because it can very easily be too tall for some dogs.
