Looking for the best dog feeders? These are today’s best-selling and top-rated dog feeders that Chewy pet parents, like you, love. We update this list every day, so you can be sure you’re getting the timeliest product recommendations available.
Clean automatic dog feeders according to the product instructions. Some automatic dog feeders will have dishwasher-safe components, while others can only be hand washed. Many automatic feeders for dogs also include electronic or mechanical components which cannot come in contact with water. Be sure to read all directions on your dog's automatic feeder for proper use and care.
Any dog food will work with certain automatic dog feeders, but most are made for dry food only. The majority of timed automatic dog feeders do not have a way to keep wet food at a safe temperature, so they can only be used with dry dog food. Other feeders may include freezable packs designed for keeping wet food cold, but these may not be suitable or large enough for use with dry food. Read the instructions on the individual dog feeder you are considering to find out what kind of dog food it can safely dispense.
The best place to feed your dog is in a quiet place that's out of the way of foot traffic and family noise and activity. Choose a place with easy to clean surfaces, since many dogs are messy eaters. In homes with multiple pets, provide separate spots for eating, if possible, to avoid conflict and competition.
