Raised Dog Feeder | Size Guide

Posted by Paige Ayoade on 8th Jan 2019

This is a guide on how to buy the perfect sized raised feeder for your dog based on their size/breed.

To work out what size your dog will require, you will need to measure your dog from the floor to the top of their shoulder. You will then need to subtract a few inches based on whether they are a small, medium or large breed.

For small breeds (including toy breeds) such as french bulldogs, Pomeranians and chihuahua you will need to subtract 1 to 3 inches.

For medium breeds such as bull dogs and labradors you will need to subtract 3 to 6 inches

For large breeds such as great danes and german shepherds you will need to subtract 4 to 10 inches.

Don't be alarmed if you are unable to find the perfect size as any raised feeder is better than one thats on the floor. Raised feeders improve your dogs posture, reducing stain on their neck, hips, shoulders and joints when eating. This is especially important for older dogs and those with arthritis.* Digestion is also improved by using a raised pet feeder.
