We are very pleased with the Dogness Mini Programmable Automatic Dog & Cat Feeder! We purchased three of them to feed our three cats while we were away for a few days. They were easy to program and fill and worked perfectly. There are many options for setting different meal sizes and times. They were not cheap, but with all the money we've spent over the years on other automatic feeders, we feel these were worth the price.
Great product unless you have a sneaky cat
This product works exactly like it is supposed to. It is easy to program and dispenses very accurately. HOWEVER, my cat figured out how to trip the mechanism by sticking her paw up the dispensing chute, and emptied out 3 days worth of food at one time.
Exactly as advertised
So far so good. I found it quite simple to program. There's 4 feeding times. I had recorded my voice, but that got annoying quickly so I deleted it. The sound of the food hitting the bowl is enough to make my fat girl come running. I am pleased with this purchase.
First Chewy was excellent fast shipping, great customer service and I will continue to be a loyal customer. However I personally did not like this feeder. The digital screen is so small you have to squint to see it, Along with pressing the buttons to try and program it. Just awful. I got it to work one time and then the food would not dispense. I recommend finding something cheaper with a larger screen. Only plus is that they are nice looking feeders, but do we really need that?
I like the size of this feeder. It is small enough to fit comfortably on top of the cat tree/condo but holds enough kibble for about three weeks. My cat alternates wet and dry food meals so she has 2 kibble meals a day of two turns each, which is about 1 1/2 tablespoons. The feeder was easy to set up. I did not have a problem with the buttons. The power cord is pretty long. I love that the bowl is stainless steel. It removes easily for cleaning. I have not programmed a voice alert. The sound of the kibble hitting the bowl gets my cat’s attention. I’m happy with this feeder.
The instructions are easy to understand and easy to set up! It's really cute and fits perfectly in the corner. My kitten has not tried to knock it over or mess with it. My only complaint is the meal size option. There is no exact measurement to how much is being dispensed. Once it dispensed, I just measured it to make sure she was getting enough food. But other than that, I highly recommend!
Cute and functional
I purchased the mint green color. Adorable. The feeding options are customizable down to the portion. Has a battery back up in case for when the power goes out. Let's you record your voice for feeding time. Life saver for when I need to leave town for a day or two. Worth every penny and my cat loves his new friend that feeds him.
Happy fed kitty
This was pretty easy to set up. I wanted a feeder that plugged into the wall as I was tired of constantly changing batteries in my other feeder. The recording feature is fun but I decided not to use it as it creeped me out when I heard my voice when it went off in the early morning. I love that the bowl is easy to clean and that my cat can't break into this one as easy.
Worth while purchase to get more sleep
The older our cat gets the earlier he seems to want his first meal of the day. Purchased this feeder to give him his morning and afternoon servings of kibble. It does take some getting used to. The only dispense option is by number of turns so during set up we had to hit 'manual' and count the number of turns until we had our cats usual amount of food (8 turns is approx 1/2 cup we've found). It is only military time which is nice to never worry about AM and PM. We do wish this exact feeder came two or three sizes bigger, we fill it about every 5th day. The mechanism is quiet, the loudest part is the food dropping into the steel bowl but it's more than tolerable. Battery back up is great for piece of mind if you have to be gone for a day or two. We didn't have batteries when it arrived so we only used wall power, when we unplugged it to add batteries the meal times were saved so we only had to reset the current time. Overall this is an excellent product if you have a small animal that eats at fairly regular intervals.
Works great! For 1 1/2 days.
The feeder stopped working on the second day of use. Setup was easy, it worked exactly as expected for a few meals, then the gear that turns to dispense portions of food stopped working halfway through dispensing a meal. It was programmed to dispense 6 portions, it dispensed maybe 3 or 4, then apparently broke, permanently. It no longer dispenses food during programmed meals, I can no longer even dispense food manually with the manual feeding button. The rest of the interface works. I cleaned the hopper, checked that nothing was stuck in the gears, unplugged and plugged it back in...nothing. There's lots of good reviews here, so maybe I just got a defective model, but buyer beware.
