Yes, yet another raised dog feeder. This one is for Saturn, a female GSD (little one in the last picture-in the front) who also happens to be Drago’s girlfriend. Her owner saw the one I built for Drago and wanted one too. This one is Drago’s HERE

Similiar design but stained to match their kitchen cabinets. Made out of pine with pocket-hole joinery and dowels. Hope you all like it.

I trust that this is a purely platonic relationship…?

Well geez, now I have to make one! This looks very easy to make but still attractive (please consider that a compliment).

I like the design elements here and how you raised the dish holder level to float above the legs.

I just might have to put this a bit higher on my “to build” list. All we’ll need to do is find some dishes that sit down in like those, as the one’s we’ve got now are wider at the bottom, rather than at the lip. Thanks for posting!

Nice design. Raised feeders are nice for the dogs. Did you do anything special to keep the dishes from rattling around? On the ones I have made I used a piece of weather stripping. Helps keep the bowls in place when Apollo is licking it clean.

Tom,

That’s a great idea to keep the bowls in-place. I’ll have to remember that. Thanks.

lovinmrv – they’re both fixed. Saturn throws herself at him. It’s actually quite funny to see. She won’t let any other bitches close to him.

Jonathan – They are basically mixing bowls (with upper lip) and 1/3 of the cost of the ones you find at a pet store. I think I found mine for about $5 each.

Tom – that’s a good tip and it should help prevent the water from getting into the cut end-grain. I don’t have any issues with the bowls rattling around as I get the hole cut as close to the diameter of the bowl as possible.
