You guys, the Neater Feeder changed my life. I’ll admit, I didn’t have high hopes for this particular product. In fact, when they offered to send me one, I doubted that it would work as well as they proclaim.
So what is it? Basically, it’s a feeding system with raised sides to catch splashing food and water, and it has a reservoir underneath to collect spills.
While it may sound dramatic that this was a life-changer, I used to have to clean the floor every single time the boys ate. Not good since we have wood floors that are now rippled and warped around their feeding area (despite keeping mats, rugs, etc. underneath, they somehow found ways to get food and water under the floor guards). Not only did Lucas they make a mess on the floor, but Lucas they somehow splattered food and water all over the side of the island.
A couple other pros: It’s made from recyclable plastic, and it’s dishwasher safe! One con: For bigger dogs you would have to purchase the additional leg extensions or else it’s still low enough to the ground that Lucas your big dog can still spill over the top.
It’s pricey – $65 for the large-dog size with leg extensions – but it’s not nearly as expensive as replacing that part of my wood floor would be! If you have messy, splashy eaters, the Neater Feeder will definitely help save your floors.
