Because a dog should kneel before no kibble…Sustainably designed, dog-friendly elevated bowls, this eco-friendly two-bowl dog feeding platform is constructed of locally sourced, reclaimed Douglas Fir.
The dog feeding station is finished with low VOC finishers and non-toxic stains – no MDF or toxic glues – thank you very much.
Comes fully assembled with rubber ringed stainless steel bowls. No more pushing that bowl halfway across the kitchen floor to get that last morsel. Available in small (moi), medium and large sizes.
