Introducing PetWeighter – the ingenious dog bowl that sits and stays
Available now at Amazon.com, PetWeighter has been uniquely designed to prevent the spills and mess that can often result from an 'ever-moving' bowl. It also ensures a constant supply of water, whatever the season*.
Engineered by a resourceful dog owner for his Schnauzer, Charlie, who was diagnosed with diabetes, this clever product was originally created to stop him knocking over the bowl and therefore provide his canine pal with access to plenty of water throughout the day.
Strong and sturdy, the two-part PetWeighter comprises a removable bowl on top of a base that can be filled with sand, water or a combination of the two. This means that the high-strength, food-grade plastic bowl will not move when a dog nudges it – and stops the container and contents from travelling across the kitchen or yard. It will also stay put if a clumsy human kicks it by accident or a mischievous child knocks into it while playing on the floor.
Simply unscrew the cap, fill and then secure again, replacing the bowl on the top, for a robust receptacle that will always 'sit' and 'stay'! When completely full, the PetWeighter can tip the scales at a mighty 28 pounds (13kg) – enough to prevent food and water spills by even the biggest hungry hounds.
The PetWeighter bowl is detachable for washing or filling with food and can be placed on a dishwasher top rack for a thorough, hygienic clean. The top is then easily aligned to the base and locked straight back into place with a simple click.
The rounded corners of the PetWeighter make it conveniently chew-resistant, while the bowl itself has no dirt-attracting cracks or crevices. As well as providing ongoing access to water, the PetWeighter is great news for arthritic dogs** at meal times as its elevated height (8¼ inches / 21cm) removes the need to stoop down, which can put stress on joints, necks and shoulders, particularly in older animals.
Designed by award-winning British small business, Peak Pet Products Ltd, PetWeighter has a suggested retail price of $29.99 and is available on Amazon.com (https://www.amazon.com/
