Best Automatic Dog Feeder for Large Breeds.

There are plenty of automatic dog feeders available on the market, but not all ate suitable for larger breeds of dogs.

This can be due to the amount of food the feeder dispenses( not enough for larger dogs) or the feeder itself is unable to stand up to the dogs size. A good example would be a feeder that is easily knocked over due to the dogs size.

Feeding larger dogs is mainly done outside, so for the purpose of this post I am going to look at solutions for feeding larger breed dogs while you are not around.

Bigger dogs need more food and water than smaller breed dogs, so we need a solution that will feed your dogs enough food in a safe manner.

Little Giant Galvanized Steel Chow Hound Dog Feeder.

Looking at options for large breed dogs was no easy task, most automatic pet feeders are designed for smaller/medium size dogs or cats. Most of these are designed to used in doors and do not dispense enough food for bigger dogs.

One solution you may wish to consider is the automated dog feeder from Little Giant. Designed to feed larger dogs breeds, this pet feeder will dispense food as and when your dogs wants it.

What Customers are Saying.

The overall reviews on Amazon for the Little Giant Galvanized Steel Chow Hound Dog Feeder are positive. There are currently at the time of writing this post 623 customer reviews on Amazon for the product. It has an average review score of 4.5 stars out of a possible 5, which is very good.

Some customers have said they have had to train their dogs to use the dog feeder, “They didn’t get how it worked at first, but only took me showing them for 5 minutes and putting some treats in the bottom (while showing them this) before the smallest caught on and figured it out”

I do not think training your dog or dogs for 5 minutes is too much to ask? Most dog owners will be happy to do this if it solves their problem

Other customers on Amazon said, “This product constitutes a simple but effective idea,” and, “I have no idea if there is a down-side, but this thing is sturdy and everything seems to work great, I mean at least the dog hasn’t complained.”
