Selecting a dog feeder is not a light decision. Here are some things to consider before choosing your elevated dog feeder.
A: Elevated pet bowls comprise raised platforms with cut-outs for feeding bowls, engineered to ease the mobility issues and joint pains that older dogs may suffer. They may mitigate any spinal or joint problems that may develop in younger dogs. When bowing their necks or even lying down to eat or drink food on the ground, your dog may develop indigestion, which causes painful and sometimes fatal gastrointestinal problems. Elevated dogs bowls allow your dog to eat and drink in a comfortable position. It is also beneficial to you as a pet parent because these raised feeders prevent a lot of mess. When dogs are excited, they can sometimes spill food or water by moving or climbing into dishes. Elevated feeders diminish their ability to do this, so mealtime is a much cleaner experience for all involved.
A: Getting a puppy is exciting, but remember that it is a living organism, and you must provide them with the best care possible. A good start is a training crate, so they can master potty training and get accustomed to the enclosure. Place a dog bed or blanket inside for them for added warmth and comfort. Your pup will need a feeding bowl, water bowl and suitable food for your GSD (German Shepherd Dog). You will also need a leash and a collar which you can personalise with your dog’s name or address. If you don’t want to put this information on their collar, there are also tracking chips that your vet can insert. Be sure to keep a good supply of cleaning products, treats, toys, grooming products and medication handy. Pups eventually become full-grown adults. GSDs are not small dogs, so consider items your puppy can use as they grow.
