Most pet owners believe their dogs should be fine with getting food regularly, irrespective of the type of bowl they use. But the truth is, the dish you use to feed your dog is as important as the choice of dog food. You want to choose bowls with features that make your furry friend more comfortable while eating.
There are tons of dog food bowls out there, so you can never be short of options. However, sifting through the entire lot can be demanding. That is why we have outlined the bowls you should choose for feeding your canine companion below.
Dog Bowl Material Matters
Like human plates, feeding bowls for dogs come in different materials. We will focus on the three most popular: plastic, ceramic, and stainless steel.
Plastic Dog Bowls
Plastic Dog Bowls Plastic dog bowls are relatively affordable and offer more color options. But it also has a few downsides. For instance, you can’t use them for chewers—dogs that chew their bowls. These bowls are also lightweight, making it easier for your dog to carry or push them around while eating. Lastly, plastic dog bowls are breeding spaces for bacteria and may trigger allergic reactions in dogs allergic to plastic.
Ceramic Dog Bowls
Some dogs are fond of pushing their feeding bowls around when eating or drinking. Ceramic dog bowls would be a good choice for these dogs because they are sturdy and heavyweight. However, the surface of the ceramic bowl has tiny pores bacteria can get into, so it is recommended to clean the ceramic dog bowl daily. Another obvious downside of ceramic dog bowls is their fragility, and when they break, you must ensure to pack away the broken fragments before it hurts your dog.Some dogs are fond of pushing their feeding bowls around when eating or drinking.

Stainless Steel Dog Bowls
This is the best option on the list. Stainless-steel feeding bowls for dogs are durable and dishwasher-safe. They come with a non-skid rim on the bottom that ensures food and drink do not spill. Although you are not getting many designs or colors, they are durable, practical, and relatively affordable.
Dog Bowls Can Be Multi-Functional
Asides from the material, you should consider the functionality when choosing a feeding bowl for your dog. The PAWAii Magic Dog Bowls are multi-functional in design—they can conveniently meet your dog’s water and food needs simultaneously. Your dog can easily eat his food and drink water without moving or needing another bowl. It comes in handy for owners with multiple home pets.
Elevated Bowl Dogs that bend down to drink water and eat from their bowls every time are at risk of bad posture which can lead to back and gastrointestinal problems. This is one problem the PAWAii Magic Dog Bowls set out to resolve. You can easily stack up the two bowls to create an elevated dog bowl that allows your furry pal to eat at a comfortable angle. It also ensures they do not pressure or stress their neck joints while eating, making it suitable for older dogs or dogs dealing with joint and muscle issues.
PAWAii Magic Dog Bowls are equipped with a slow feeder that helps you slow down the eating pace of your dog. Therefore, you can extend your pet’s eating time to prevent overeating. This also protects your furry friend’s digestive system.
Warm or Cold Water
Using this food and water bowl, you can keep your dog’s water cold or warm. When it gets hot in the summer, you can throw a few ice cubes in a bowl at the base and fill the bowl above with drinking water, so that your dog can drink cool water. When it is freezing in the winter, you can pour some hot water into the bottom bowl and place the food in the bowl above, and the Magic Bowl can keep the food inside warm.
A dog’s feeding bowl is more than an ordinary bowl. It plays a vital role in your dog’s eating habits and overall well-being. If you can combine the right bowls or feeders with the correct food, your dog will be on a great path to healthy eating. If your dog struggles to eat despite getting a suitable feeding bowl, he may be dealing with other problems. This blog addresses reasons why your dog is not eating.
