The right material (plastic or stainless steel)
In Stainless Steel or Stainless Steel Bowls
Stainless steel bowls are light and do not alter the taste of food or water. They are easy to clean on a daily basis. The bottom can be fitted with a non-slip coating to avoid the dog to move its Bowl during his meal. Stainless steel doesn’t offer large varieties of colours but has a good resistance in time. It also has the advantage of being hypoallergenic.
The Bowls And Bowls Plastic
These bowls and plastic bowls attract more eye of the owner, as they are often very colorful or decorated with fanciful patterns. Attention to this material, because many dogs can develop an allergy to the contact of the plastic.

The size of the Bowl must be adapted to the size of your dog. Do not take a small bowl if your dog has to weigh more than 30 pounds. A smaller Bowl can be used until he grows up. If you have a medium size dog, his bowl of puppy may be the same for all his life. Some bowls can be adapted on a tripod or adjustable support to allow your dog to eat in a comfortable position.
