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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ldllds My Dog Has A Drinking Problem!
My King Charles has a drinking problem! The water and food on the floor problem is now solved with this feeding station. I purchased several extra stainless steel 6" diameter dog bowls and now I have plenty. I don't have to immediately wash a bowl before the next meal time. This travels well since the top and bottom nest nicely. This was an excellent investment for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KatH Works Great!
This is a really cool set up. My dogs were very messy, especially when drinking. The Neater Feeder has been just the answer! No more water dribbles all over the floor. At first the dogs were hesitant to use it since it was new. After a few weeks they have adjusted well and it is working great! I would highly recommend this product.

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 Nick Excellent mess free food and water station
Excellent food and water station for your dog. Keeps the floor mess from water spills and food pieces. Kind of expensive for molded plastic and two bowls but definitely performs as designed and I would buy it again.
