Believe it or not, dog bowls matter.
I mean, how could you spend your hard-earned cash creating a modern kitchen or dining room and then continue to feed your furry family member from a matching set of old Cool Whip containers?
Ask Dalilah, my design associate. If you’re going to carry something around in your mouth when it’s empty, it better look and feel right as well as hold food and water. Take a look at some of her favorites from our friends at Doca Pet and Obelisk Home.
Note the different heights. I’ve been told you can help prevent bloat by selecting a dog bowl at the proper height for your pooch. When Fido’s head is kept above his stomach, food travels more efficiently down the digestive tract, or so the story goes. (Please remember I have a design degree, not a DVM, so if in doubt, ask your vet.)
They’re like little pieces of modern art and may put your human dishes to shame (decorative accents help complete a room, but they’re often overlooked in terms of its overall design – don’t let it happen to you).
The next time you get ready to sit down for the family meal, set a place for your dog with one of these beauties – better he eats out of his own bowl than from your child’s hand underneath the dining table.
