Elevated dog feeders are very popular with pet owners who have medium to large sized dogs; when compared to regular dog bowls, elevate dog feeders have several notable benefits. The primary benefit to the pet owner is that elevated feeders create less mess—and opportunity for mess—than regular bowls which sit on the floor. The primary benefit for the dog itself is that elevated feeders are less strenuous on the dog’s back, and allow them to eat food closer to their shoulder level.
There are many different types of elevated dog feeders, both in design and material. Wooden dog feeders are particularly popular because of their look and sturdiness. Some wooden elevated feeders even has storage in the bottom. The following are 5 elevated wooden dog feeders which are a great option for many homes.
