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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BernerMom4 No more puddles!
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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by starnaito Good product, but uncomfortable for some dogs
This was the right size for my AmStaff, and just out of reach of the Corgis, which was my intention in buying it. But even though I gradually tried to warm my dog up to the idea of drinking/eating from it, she didn't want to put her head into the enclosed top. I ended up removing the top part and setting the bowls into the bottom tray. Not ideal, but she will eat and drink from the bowls now and it's still somewhat elevated. (But now the Corgis can also reach the bowls.) I may try adding the top part again later and see if she will adjust. Just keep in mind that if your dog is used to eating/drinking from floor level, it may be a challenge getting them to adjust to this feeder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandy777 Keeps everything tidy
I live in an apartment with a small kitchen. His old elevated feeder that legs that stuck out a bit so without fail, I would kick the feeder when passing by, sloshing water all over the place and getting my socks wet. I would encounter food on the wall due to his voracious eating. I make and/or mix his food (Honest Kitchen with Evangers and grass fed & pastured meat) so I was using a 8.25" ceramic bowl by Petrageous since I needed to heat things up in the microwave. Conveniently, the ceramic bowls fit into the Neater Feeder. I bought the leg extensions so it would be at the same level as his old feeder. I also ordered the freezable Polar bowl that will keep the water cold. I'm looking forward to using it in tandem with the Neater Feeder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dogX4 At last - my floor is dry!
I have the sloppiest drinkers - I literally have a lake to clean up after they drink every single day. I have tried a variety of bowls that supposedly address this issue. None worked. I bought the Neater Feeder, specifically for use with water (I fill both bowls with water as I have multiple dogs). After two weeks - NOT A DROP OF WATER ON THE FLOOR! I am so pleased with this product. Instead of cleaning the floor, I'm simply dumping the excess water from the Neater Feeder, wiping it off, and we're good to go. I recommend this to anyone with this problem. I love this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shane Just what I needed
Was mainly looking for a water bowl that would keep my dog from dripping water onto the floor. This worked perfect to contain all the water. I ordered the large which is bigger than I expected but is fine for my rottweiler

Rated 5 out of 5 by XenasMom Best Feeding System!
Love, love, love! Made my life easier because I no longer have to clean up the mess from my Xena's sloppy eating and drinking. She used to scatter her food but now it is contained. Some people say the water bowl is too small but I think it is just right. It lasts her all day and she gets fresh water more often. Would definitely buy again and recommend to anybody. I bought the leg extensions to make it the perfect height for my German Shepherd. Also, this arrived faster than expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hershey The last dog feeder you'll ever buy... It's that GREAT!
I bought this product for my male Chesapeake Bay Retriever. He is a extremely messy eater, his dog bowl is against one side of a French door, so there's remnants of his dog food plastered on the door. Hershey also loves to face dive in the water dish. So over the years, the floor in the kitchen has bowed slightly due to the water sitting on the floor without anyone noticing. I have been looking for a product such as this. I carefully read the reviews from different websites and came to the conclusion that this is a must have. I was undecided about the leg extensions. But then I read a few reviews about owners needing the extensions, I purchased them. If you have a breed of dog that is the size of a Beagle the large stands alone is probably your fit, if you have a dog the size of a Retriever get the large stand and leg extensions. I was also pleased with the price, I did some recon and found that Chewy.com was cheapest place. I was really delighted when the company followed up with a card and a little gift, that made me feel like a part of something vs just another customer.
