Rated 1 out of 5 by shamrock73 too small
product description does not give dimensions so went with the "placemat" as an estimate for size. It is about the size of half a placemat. While the product would be fine for a SMALL dish (like a cat dish or a side by side dish for water and food for a very small dog ) in no way is it suitable for a reasonable dog dish for a medium dog. If you have a very small pet with an x-small bowl maybe this will work for you. Otherwise, keep scrolling. its a shame because I liked the construction of the item. Not worth sending back so its being used as a paw cushion in front of my dogs bowls.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Emgeedee Just what I needed!
This was exactly what I was looking for! I needed something to go under my cat's water/food bowls to make sure they don't leave rings on the hardwood floor, as well as to help the sliding issue. This is perfect! Small enough to tuck into a corner of a room, but large enough to fit a cat-sized water bowl and food bowl. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is the horrible rubber smell that it has. (I think it's decreased, but it was pretty bad when I first opened the box.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeanette77 Did the trick
We have a kitty who needed a place to eat his food and drink his water, and this placemat, with its small profile, helps define his space, keeps his dishes from sliding around, and is very easy to clean!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Marleyelliot Good idea but...
OK mat but much too small. Plus, my feline guys can still push the bowls off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TeeKay1213 I wouldn't buy this again.
I just got a new, big, dog. I bought a large stainless steel water bowl that is super nice because it has a rubber backing. I didn't realize it had this backing when I bought it. At the same time I bought a smaller food dish that is also stainless steel. After getting home and watching my dog push his food bowl all over the floor, I wondered why it didn't stay put like the water bowl. Of course! I discovered it didn't have a rubber backing. So then I look on chewy.com to see what is available to neaten up the food/water area and also keep the food bowl from sliding around. I saw the ORE Pet Black Skinny Recycled Rubber Rectangle Placemat, and love that it was made from recycled materials, so I bought it. The food bowl still slides right off and it's too small to really contain the water splashes from the water bowl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Candice Great product!
I love this placemat! My dogs used to scoot their bowls around while eating and drinking and just made a mess all around the house. Now that I have this placemat their bowls stay exactly where they're supposed to be!
It's pretty small, 7.5" x 16.5"

Rated 4 out of 5 by DJC16 Placemat is small
This placemat is 17" x 7.75" so it is very small. It works great for small spaces.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kittykat Simple and sleek
Doesn't take up much room and works great to hold bowl in place for my not so messy eater. Have to really bear down to get it clean, but I love it
