The PetWeighter pet bowl might be the answer to your prayers if your dog dances around the floor with either his water bowl or food dish…

Now that the bowls are out – guess who’s looking for food?

A moving bowl full of water (or food) can be frustrating – but with the PetWeighter – your “weight is over!” #punintended

For years the Boys have been dining from elevated dishes which don’t really move much. I prefer elevated dishes, for many reasons, but usually the ones I like come in “sets” making it impossible to move one without the other.  

For instance – I like to have a water dish on the porch for them when we take a break to “people watch”

Nothing like a lil’ people watching when the weather’s warm!

On those occasions – I have two choices –

  • Take the entire trio w/stand out there or,
  • Take only the stainless steel bowl with me

Of course I opt for the latter and that’s when the water sloshes all over the place, and/or with a little help from Jaxson – it starts sliding right through the rod iron railing – landing upside down in the azalea bush #truestories


The PetWeighter pet bowl has several features that I like. 

It’s –

Sturdy and secure – when it locks onto the base it’s easy to remove. If you fill the base with either water or sand it can weigh up to 13kg (about 28 lbs). The opening is wide enough to add ice if you’d like to keep the water in the bowl chilled…

I don’t have sand lying around the house – but I do have water!

Slowly – is how your dog will eat because the anti-gulp feature encourages reduction in speed when eating…

Jax will pose for liver treats all day long!

Elevated Feeding Position – may help improve digestion as well as making it easier on their joints. 

Hygienic – because it was designed by healthcare engineers with hygiene in mind, the bowls have no cracks or crevices that will attract dirt. The bowls are made from food grade, high-strength plastic. The base is made from crack resistant plastic and both pieces are dishwasher safe!


Available online – these bowls are competitively priced. $29.99 each on Amazon for the large bowl –

  • Height – 21 cm 
  • Depth – 65mm
  • Capacity – 2 Litres

I received two sets in exchange for an honest review – so honest I shall be. Once I realized how dry my porch floor remained using the PetWeighter – I decided to switch one from water in the base to sand.  

I had a tough time getting ALL the water out of the base. I shook as much as I could. But to get it bone dry, I would have had to leave it open and let the water evaporate. Fortunately for me – I had another plan.

Since I intend to use three bowls in the house with sand in the base. The fourth one I will use for drinking water on the porch, so I will continue with water – only because I can add ice during the warmer months to keep the water a little colder than usual.

In my opinion this is certainly NOT a deal breaker – but I would suggest going with straight sand in the base and be done with it. So enter the give-away and enjoy pet bowls that don’t move!

Tomorrow – try to be the person your dog thinks you are ❤️

    Looks like a great idea for those who move their bowls around. I am a dainty eater, so I never move my bowl. Bailie only moves her food bowl when it is empty. It certainly is a great idea.

    What a genius idea, I’m surprised this concept hasn’t been developed sooner. This type of bowl would also be ideal for a dog in a cone, ahem, Baxter, as he wouldn’t be liable to tipping it over or moving it as he drinks with his lampshade on. 😉

    I leave a water bowl down but they eat twice a day, I can’t free feed them, Baxter would eat me out of a house and home, and he’d be 75 lbs. LOL

    Well that’s pretty cool and has me asking (once again)…why didn’t I think of that?!

    What a great idea! I like prettier looking bowls – we have a red ceramic slow feeder dish in a wooden stand that I just love for Luke (plus it has his name on it). But I would definitely use one of these for water outside, I love that you can put ice in it for the summer.
    Do you think they’d be insulted if I used one for our chickens? It would work well for them too, and they actually push their bowls around more than dogs do! LOL

    I like anything that can keep the bowl off the floor so there is less spillage of the water.

    Putting this on the porch with ice water in it is a great idea…even when travelling.

      I know, I haven’t tried it on the porch yet – need to get porch furniture first LOL oh the perils of renovations ….

    i like the raised bowls (wooden feeder), so they girls do not have to reach down on the floor to get their food, i also need a bowl for my oldest that slows her eating. i do like these bowls because they are weighted and she can not move it all around on the floor.

    Thes look awesome! I love how they are weighted. Currently Jaxon likes to carry… his bowls around when they are empty is as if he says refill please! Lol or believes they are hockey pucks. Would deffintly use mostly for indoors but outdoors too durning the summer months.

      So far they are holding up nicely. I took one to work so that the boys could have an elevated water bowl. All the pet therapy pups like it 🙂
