    Happy With My Purchase

    By on

    I first ordered the Petnet Feeder this past November 2018 after trying a different automatic feeder I found on the Chewy website. I had ended up returning that one for jamming issues, and while I knew that reviews for this particular feeder were mixed, I liked the idea of app connectivity and decided to give it a try. Set up wasn’t too hard, but it did take two or three tries to connect the feeder to the Wifi and my phone. Make sure you have a strong signal from your router. If you have many smart devices on the same network, that can also affect things. The Petnet really works best with smaller dry kibbles, so if you think yours might be on the border of 5/8in, you might experience jamming I first ordered the Petnet Feeder this past November 2018 after trying a different automatic feeder I found on the Chewy website.

When it came to putting food in, I was ready. Prior to the Petnet arriving, I head read on the site that food under 5/8 inch would work, but larger would not. I’ve been feeding my dog Taste of the Wild Pine Forest, which was right on the border of that maximum size with its kibble, so I switched her to Taste of the Wild Appalachian Valley Small Breed. My dog’s NOT a small breed, but this smaller kibble size works perfectly with the feeder, and my vet was onboard with the switch. The Petnet really works best with smaller dry kibbles, so if you think yours might be on the border of 5/8 inches, you might experience jamming or clogging issues. I can honestly say that I have had zero issues with this feeder since initially setting it up and I would recommend it to people with cats or small to medium sized dogs that eat small dry kibbles. I do however wish that the feeder would alert me to refill when it became close to empty. … more

    Too glitchy to depend on

    By on

    I read the negative reviews and still was lured in by the feeder's sleek look and app. The Petnet was easy enough to connect, but it constantly did not feed my pet. (I'm pretty tech savvy, too.) When I was out of town, I tried to contact customer service, and it was awful; after one email asking me questions about my device and app (in which a rep provided incorrect information), he just never followed up. Multiple tweets and calls to customer service (since my email was being ignored) went unanswered. When I finally heard back from someone, I was told that Petnet is only supposed to supplement, say, one meal, and was mainly for ensuring my pet was fed the right amount, was not for my "jet-setting I read the negative reviews and still was lured in by the feeder's sleek look and app. The Petnet was easy enough to connect, but it constantly did not feed my pet.

OK, but what's the point of having a device that glitches every day? This doesn't happen with my home's other bluetooth/wireless devices. I would not recommend. … more

    Good Idea but a TERRIBLE product

    By on

    I left for Christmas yesterday. I planned the automatic feedings to feed my cat at certain times. This thing missed TWO whole feedings! When I try to manually feed, it doesn’t dispense. When I called “customer care” they said they couldn’t do nothing but have someone at my home IN ANOTHER STATE to reset it and feed my cat. I’m returning this piece of crap and getting one that doesn’t cost me $180 for nothing. DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOU ARE GOING OUT OF STATE AND CANT IMMEDIATELY TROUBLESHOOT.

    Good idea, but still needs a lot of work to be reliable

    By on

    I wanted to love this thing. I loved the idea that I set up automated feedings, but more importantly I loved that I could feed my dog manually if I was going to be home later, or if she was anxious and I wanted to give her a snack to take her mind off of our being gone. At first we loved it, but now approximately 2 months into having it, it seems to be causing more problems than its worth. It doesn't seem to have a mechanism built in to actually detect whether food is being released or not. When the feeder receives the message that it should release some food, you get a notification on your phone saying that your pet has successfully been fed. Well, for about three days our dog was acting I wanted to love this thing.

When the feeder receives the message that it should release some food, you get a notification on your phone saying that your pet has successfully been fed. Well, for about three days our dog was acting weird, HOUSING her dinner, and waking up early crying for her breakfast. Turns out, for those days the feeder hadn't been working, so she wasn't getting her middle of the day feeds! The only reason we found out because we happened to be home one day during the scheduled feeds, heard it trying to release food, nothing came out, and then we got the notification that our dog was successfully fed! Not cool. Our poor pup has many health issues and needs to be fed at specific times, so this was a big problem for her. The same issue seems to occur when the hopper is empty, there is no mechanism to detect that the hopper is empty, so it just spins, releasing no food, and tells us our dog has been fed when she hasn't. For such an expensive item you would think this would be a pretty standard feature. I paid nearly 200 dollars for this item, and I really don't trust it to release food at the appropriate times... Sadly, it is just outside the return window or this probably would have been sent back. … more

    Do NOT Buy!

    By on

    This product is absolutely not ready for consumer use. It fails to function at least once a week. You can not rely on it if you’re going to be at work or traveling. Do not buy it.

    Not all the bugs worked out!

    By on

    I am very dissatisfied with this product. It worked for 2 days than stopped feeding. I call support but was told it’s my router. They are aware there are multiple routers with issue but not giving any warning to public. Extremely frustrated. Don’t purchase this product unless you have a lot of patience and money to waste.

    Do Not Buy It !!!!!!!

    By on

    Well, if I could make a decision again, I would never buy it! This “Smart”feeder has two times of “Smart”feeder off line per month, and at least four times of manual feed disabled per month.

    Loved this for the first few months, my overweight cat ate much less and was on a schedule... then it stopped syncing despite every attempt.

    Perfect but LOUD

    By on

    I love this, I go out of town on the weekends a lot and my cat is VERY food motivated and wakes me up at dawn everyday for breakfast. Mornings have been so much better, no more screaming for hours. HOWEVER this thing is incredibly loud. We had it in our bedroom and it was horrifying and woke us up every time. We moved it to the kitchen (we live in a small 2 bedroom apartment) and it's better but I still hear it every morning, just less frightening and loud. My cat Mustard worships this as his new god, I am now of little importance. He's not figured out how to open it (yet) but I live in fear he'll somehow figure it out.

    Buyer beware: can’t be used with mesh router

    By on

    I really wanted to like this product because my cats were willing to eat from it (unlike a previous attempt at using an auto feeder); unfortunately, I found that it kept kicking offline and missing programmed feeds. A conversation with petnet customer service revealed that the unit is not compatible with mesh routers so there wasn’t a way to fix the problem and I had to return. I also found the app to only be ok — the petsafe app was much more intuitive, in my opinion (but my cats refused to use it because the overhang where the food dumped out of touched their ears once... ugh). That part might be personal preference, of course!
