Learn More About Dog Bowls

While some of the best dog bowls are elevated, you don’t necessarily need an elevated dog bowl. They can be a good option for certain conditions and eating styles. Dogs with joint and bone problems may find elevated bowls more comfortable, and those who like to play with their food and water or push their bowl around may be less tempted to do so. If you’re considering an elevated dog bowl, you may want to talk to your veterinarian to ensure you size it properly—generally, the recommended height is as tall as your dog’s lower chest.

Many dogs do just fine with basic, stainless-steel or ceramic bowls that you simply place on the ground. These bowls can be great for pet parents too, as they’re durable and easy to clean. Older, arthritic pups or those who like to make a mess may do better with an elevated dog bowl. And if your dog likes to eat too quickly, a slow-feeder bowl may be the right choice. If you go with a plastic bowl, make sure it’s made from high-quality, food-grade and BPA-free materials, and replace it when it begins to look worn. Check out all of our dog bowls and feeding supplies to see all the options.

Yes—stainless-steel is an excellent material and stainless-steel dog bowls feature often on our list of best-selling dog bowls. It’s highly durable, can stand up to dogs who like to chew their bowls and won’t break—even if you drop it from the counter. It’s easy to clean and is dishwasher safe. Stainless-steel is an inert material, meaning it’s typically not processed or treated with chemicals. But remember—you still need to deep-clean stainless-steel dog bowls at least once a week.
