I received the bowl in the mail it seemed kind of flimsy but like it would work. My dog walked over to eat out of it and as soon as he started eating the entire bowl and the bar around it fell off. I'm not sure if others have had this problem and I understand it was a large dog but this should be made for dogs and should not be faulty due to the fact that a dog used it. I would not recommend this product to anyone, it also makes me wonder why chewy would let this product be sold from them as their product should represent them as a company .
Great outdoor water or feeder bowl
on Apr 24, 2019
Somewhere we bought one of these a few years ago to use as an outdoor water bowl. We hang it from the top board of our fence. Works great! Have tried other types but does not work as good as these. They do not rust or break after a hard winter either! Could not find this bowl anywhere except through Chewy! Unexpected great price too. Needed a second one for the "unsalted" peanuts that we feed the squirrels to keep them away from our bird feeders. Bought the large one where I can put a little or a lot into it - less refills. Plan on buying one or two more in the future!
Much better size than what came with the cage
on May 8, 2019
I ordered the 10 oz. size for use with my parrot, and she and I both are quite happy with it. She is one of the smaller Amazon species, and the big cup that came in her cage has always seemed much too large for her. In addition this one hangs at an angle that enabled her to eat at a level that's comfortable for her. Really pleased with it!
Rabbits easily knock it off cage
on Apr 29, 2019
I bought this bowl because my rabbit kept tipping over her food bowl.Food was constantly being wasted because it would fall through to the urine/ feces tray under her cage. I tried buying heavier ceramic bowls but she still managed to tip and spill her food. So I finally purchased this one that hangs from the cage but she still knocks it over. I wish it would attach more securely.

Was very excited to get this for a momma cat that I was fostering with her babies. I thought it would be smarter and they would have more room to move in the kennel. Well there wasn’t a day I wasn’t cleaning up the mess. It’s a very small bowl and can’t hold much food or water. For an adult animal it tips easily and makes a mess. They should consider clips or something to have it sit more secure.
Love it for small breeds
on May 8, 2019
We love this product for our small breed dogs. It works well and holds the right amount of food. Easy to hang on kennels and chainlink turn outs. We wish their were a large breed option like a 60oz. Or bigger.
This keeps food off the ground ants and dirt are minimal. We love it.
Inexpensive, and sadly it shows.

This was okay for the price (I bought 3, for 3 separate crates) but I was disappointed that it would not hang so that the bowl was level. The wire hanger tilts upward severely so that if you fill the bowl with water near the brim at the rear (closest to hanger) the water level is an inch or more down at the front and thus it doesn't hold much. I tied the hanger bottom bar down with a couple of zip ties so that the dog wouldn't knock it off the crate, which worked (and in an attempt to pull it more level, which it didn't) so it's serviceable, but it definitely could be better designed. Fortunately, it cost very little or I'd be more disappointed and probably return them.

As others have noted, the bowl is lightweight and flimsy and might not stand up to being knocked around by a big dog. My mini-Aussies are pretty gentle on things, so that's not an issue for us - just the poor design. Still, we're using them so far, with modest success. Just SHOULD be better, you know? Why not do it right if you're doing it?… more

I was very excited to open the boxes and use these immediately! The first box I opened, I quickly rinsed it out and put food in it and I put it in my dogs pen and it fit well! I opened the second box, rinsed it, put water in it, put it in my dogs pen and water spilled everywhere! The hooks on the second bowl wasn't bent well. I had to get pliers to make it align with the other side, after that it has worked perfectly ! Great buy, other than the defect one of the items came with!!!

I will start off with saying: it is not for all crates so please do your research accordingly.
We foster MANY cats/kittens and these are a blessing to use. They’re so easy to disinfect in between foster groups.
We also use them during our adoption events. We have various crates; different sizes and brands.
I will say, if you have tiny tiny kittens I do not recommend using them bc the kittens will not able able to reach. Or they will knock it over in an attempt to reach it.
Definitely worth it

I found it difficult to find the kind of bowl that would attach easily to a wire crate and be as easily removable. This is a nice, light-weight bowl that will work for my puppy until she grows to a mid-size dog. Very good price, too.
