My dogs are very neat eaters, but when it comes to drinking water they make a big watery mess. This tray with a raised edge helps keep the water mess from getting on our wood floors. I found that the stickers on it were easy to remove, contrary to what some have reported. The stickers just need to be removed before first use of the tray.
This is a great food mat for both of our Goldens to keep to their own food bowls. Laughing as there are many reviews on the frustration of the stickers. Easiest fix in the world and it only requires a hairdryer. Let the hairdryer blow warm air over the entire sticker (keep about 5" away). It shouldn't take more than 10-15 seconds. Lift up the edge of the sticker, warm up a few more seconds and it lifts off without any sticky residue!
I like that this has a lip on the back to prevent splash but that’s the only good thing about it. The feet on the bottom fall off and move around, the plastic is warped so it doesn’t sit flat it, the stickers don’t come off, and it’s hard to clean. Ended up in the trash
So cute and works really well. The stickers came off really easily. Much better than the flatter plastic tray we used to use. This seems to contain the mess better. Price was very reasonable.
I ordered this pet food tray for my cat because we've had ants in her food 3 times in the last 6 months. I didn't care if the stickers didn't come off, as ao many reviewers complained about, I just needed ant protection. However, the stickers just peeled right off. What I have had to work around is that we have an automatic feeder and not 2 bowls. It has to sit sideways due to its length so the raised areas, bowl circles and decorative paw prints, made it hard to have the feeder sit properly and not be wobbley. I found a solution that suits us. So far, no ants but time will tell.
Nice product but I put aside others comments about the stickers, but trust me its true! The big stickers are right on front where the bowls go & they are HORRIBLE to get off. Almost impossible! When you do get them off, the very sticky glue remains. The only way my husband finally got the glue off was with brake cleaner fluid. Then I had to wash it several times to make sure THAT came off too!
I bought two of these, one for the dog (Pom) and one for my 3 Angora cats. The trays are a little big for small animals but they do contain the food well. Since there was only two colors I decided to paint mine. They came out beautiful.
This is the second one I’ve purchased. It doesn’t take too much space, but is large enough to hold a large water bowl and an 8-cup dog dish, and catches water dribbles from my large dog. Doesn’t slide. The other one I use for the cats, and it fits three smaller bowls and catches the kibble that they seem to toss around sometimes.
I absolutely love this! I had a place mat that I got a long time ago that was Garfield and made great. I have not been able to find another one made as good. I saw this and I absolutely love it. I thought it was big at first but it is great!I love the paw prints on it and the water thing around the inside of the dish to protect the food and water from ants. The plastic or material it is made out of is sturdy. So worth the money 2 items in one -placemat and bowl holder. no more washing mess around the food. Just wash the tray. Also skid controls on the bottom. I was sad to get rid of the Garfield mat I had for at least 30 years, because of mold building on it, but I really love these!!!
It came in the mail warped and not flat so I can not put any dog bowls on it because of that. It should be flat on the ground and not bent in the middle. Oh well I just will not order anything else that has been sitting in the Wearhouse for so long.
