Rated 4 out of 5 by ChewyCustomer Good for large collie
I purchased this feeder mostly to lift the bowls from the floor for my collie's comfort while eating. The "neater" part was secondary, but is nice. My dog is still messy when he drinks his water, but I knew that would happen. The feeder does help by catching his dribbles as he's drinking, but of course, when he turns his head, he still manages to get some water on the floor. That isn't the feeder's fault, of course, and as I wrote, my main purpose in buying it was for my dog's comfort. The "neater" part is a bonus.
This is a costly item, which is okay, but since I had to purchase additional legs to make it the correct height for my large dog, that added to the cost. I would prefer if the legs were either included if desired, or offered for a lower price since the cost of this set is somewhat high.
I am very glad I purchased this set. Once my dog got over his initial reluctance about trying something new (and with a few treats to tempt him), he is happily using his new feeder set.

Made well, stays put, space saver. Took couple of feedings for our 68 lb dog to feel comfortable with it.

I wish I would have found this when I got my first boxer, several years ago! We have wood floors, and they are ruined even though we always had a mat down. This dog bowl, though, is amazing and catches all the splashing and slobber from my boxer babes. If I would have had this all along, my floors would be in excellent condition! This is great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by joemoejane Keeps food off the floor
This feeder is very good at keeping food and water off the floor. I have a Boxer dog that, before this feeder, spilled more food on the floor than he ate! Now the feeder catches it and I can put it back in his bowl. It also keeps the water from spilling all over the floor, but the only drawback is that, with my 4 dogs, I need to empty the bottom that catches the water at least once a day or more often in hot weather. I really like the deeper bowl that came with the feeder as it also helps keep in the food! Wish BOTH the bowls were the deeper ones!

This has been wonderful! There is still a little dribbling from the chins but the floor is so much drier. Worth the money.

I have a BIG 90# puppy. Sloppiest drinker I have ever had! I'd estimate at least half of the water in his bowl ends up on the wall and floor. I moved his old bowl away from the wall and there was mold on the wall behind it! I was having everything painted and I needed to address this damaging issue. I found the 'Neater Feeder' for dogs and it was on sale! This feeding/watering system is the best! I had used a raised bowl system that stored the food under the bowls for years. But the water slop problem made me search for a better design. I now have to have a separate container to store the dog food, but it is well worth it. My Dex drinks and splashes and drips like he always has, but now the water is contained and just runs into the base ready to be emptied as needed. Save so much mess and time...the water bowl is bigger so it holds a LOT so less frequent refills. Brilliant....all the way around. Well done!

I bought this for our German Shepherd. He loves to "drink & drip" all over the floor. The Neater Feeder does help a lot, although he still drips on the floor as he's walking away. This is no fault of the product, simply that we have a sloppy dog!! I will be keeping it as it does minimize the mess. It also keeps his kibbles inside and not on the floor.
