Practical everyday helpers - automatic feeders for dogs
Automatic feeders supply your dog with food if you cannot be at home, or make your daily feeding easier. At the same time, they keep the food fresh and can prevent your dog from gulping down his food too quickly.
How does an automatic feeder for dogs work?
There are automatic feeders for dogs with a chip that you can program and variants that dispense the food via a motion sensor. The latter open entirely by themselves as soon as the animal approaches. Which automatic feeder is suitable for your dog depends on the intended purpose and your pet.
Your dog can either get its food at the times you want or use it by himself. However, the self-service feeding machines are not recommended for overweight and animals that like to eat too much. After all, these dogs will hardly space their meals, but rather eat everything at once. For weight control, an automated feeder is therefore recommended which allows you to select the individual portions and ensure that your four-legged friend is supplied with the appropriate quantity at the appropriate times.
A movement-controlled feed dispenser for the dog can be suitable for training. Fill the dispenser with treats and use it to reward your dog.
Dry or wet feed: which type of food is suitable?
You can fill most automatic dog feeders with both wet feed and dry food. Some models are only suitable for one type of food; you should take the manufacturer’s information into account for this. If you prefer to feed with wet food, make sure that the machine is equipped with a cooling function. This keeps the food fresh.
How is the automatic feeder for dogs filled?
Put the dog food in the appliance in the morning and then set the time at which the dog should be fed. At the programmed time, the automatic dog feeder becomes active and opens its flap. With a motion-controlled machine it is sufficient to fill the machine with food. The rest is handled by the device.
How much food does a feeding machine hold?
You can regulate the amount of food you feed individually. However, the size of the food container varies from model to model. Usually enough food for one to two meals can be filled in the individual chambers. Most machines are battery-operated and easy to clean. Whether for the big or small dogs, you will find suitable automatic feeders and drinking fountains in our online shop.
