Raised Dog Dish Using Rubbermaid Container

My dog needed a raised food dish. I just couldn't part with the big bucks to buy one, so I made one instead. I took a good sized Rubbermaid container and flipped it over. Then traced the bottoms of two bowls and cut out the holes with an X-acto knife. Now I have a nice sturdy raised feeder.

The best part is that it didn't cost us anything, since we had this stuff laying around. It could easily be adapted to larger dogs using bigger containers or smaller dogs. I also have lids for the bowls since I limit my dog's water intake after dinnertime.

What a good idea! I've been wanting to raise the feeding surface since I have a large dog, but can't spend a fortune on those expensive feeding stations. I will try this out.

Brilliant! I love this idea. Those raised feeders cost a ton in the pet stores. Thank you for sharing.

This is probably the best Pet Tip I've ever seen and will remember it when I get my next large breed in a few years.

What a great idea! I also use plastic flower pots that the bowl fits snuggly in the top of when we take the pups in the RV which has confined space but they still have a raised feeder. Thanks for sharing your great idea I will keep this tip!
