Shoe Shelf For Dog Dishes

We just got a Great Dane pup. He is growing quite quickly, and we need to keep his food and water elevated to help with digestion. Those dog bowl holders are quite expensive. So I saw a sale on shoe shelves for $3.99, and thought that was perfect since you can add levels as dog grows. I hope this helps anyone with a large dog to feed.

I think that's a really good idea, a nice looking & inexpensive alternative to an expensive dog shelf, however, I think you are asking for trouble to have it so close to that outlet! Dogs are so messy when they drink water, it could short out the outlet and/or whatever is plugged into it, possibly hurting the dog. Or your pup might decide to nibble on the wires!

I agree, the shoe shelf idea is a very good one! Please, for safety's sake, relocate it away from the electrical outlet. Good luck to you and enjoy your "gentle giant"!

We have a 1/2 and 1/2 Great Dane/lab. We happened to have a small bucket that was just the right diameter and height. We turned it upside down (top was a little wider, flipping made it more stable) and my husband cut the bottom to fit the bowl.


Works great and we happened to have it on hand already.
