BENEFITS OF A RAISED DOG FOOD BOWL
There are several benefits for dogs when their food and water bowls are raised. Placing a dog bowl at a suitable height for a dog allows him or her to maintain the correct standing posture. When the head is kept above the stomach, food travels more efficiently down the digestive tract. Also, when bowls are at the correct height for dogs, there is less strain on their leg joints and neck.
WHAT SIZE FEEDER IS RIGHT FOR YOUR DOG
The height of your elevated feeder is important. Most experts say to start by measuring the height of your dog from the floor to the top of the shoulder. From that measurement subtract 3 to 6 inches. The taller your dog the more you subtract. Below is a guideline for table height;
Medium dogs measuring between 15 and 18 inches would require a table height of 7 to 10 inches.
Tall dogs measuring between 19 and 22 inches would require a table height of 10 to 18 inches.
Extra tall dogs measuring over 23 inches would require a table height of 18 inches.
