If your not strategic about this you could end up with a huge mess from food pieces everywhere or wet floor you could slip on. We have always placed the dishes near the crates and had a food bowl stand to try and help with the messes when it comes to feeding for the dogs. However, this just doesn't eliminate the issue; My cat tosses food all over and the dogs drool/splash water everywhere.
Then I discovered the Neater Pet Brand (maker of the Neater Feeder). Made in the USA, this is a dog/cat feeding stand that has an actual solution. Not only is it available in several sizes from small and low for your cat to large sized designed for dogs even over 100 pounds. There are adjustable leg extensions as an optional feature for each feeder which will allows the Neater Feeders to extend to up to 11" tall (depending on size).
There is a nice built up wall along the back of the feeder to prevent splashing or food from being knocked behind and lost. They've also thought about those of us who never fail to kick the bowl in spill water all over the floor. There is a nice grated area at the bottom for the water to drain underneath to prevent the mess all over the floor. This helps keep the water in one place when my dogs are splashing as they drink too.
Recommendation: So does this work? Yes not only does it keep the food water neat wherever you choose but it is a hard plastic so it should last for a long time even with my crazy dogs. I love the look and design and think it it perfect for any home!
