This was our first time leaving our dog, Pepper, unattended all day. We prepped for the event by setting up and using the 5-Meal Automatic Feeder for 2 days prior to our absence. The setup was simple and it worked as advertised. It worked so well during the trial and the day of the trip that we now use it all the time. Pepper can hear the food cycling into place and runs from where ever she is to get her meal and/or treats. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has to leave their little fur babies alone for an extended period.
Not raccoon proof
on Nov 12, 2018
We bought this to feed the outdoor cat when we were gone a few days. We thought because only a small amount was exposed per day we wouldn’t attract raccoons. WRONG! The feeder was in pieces was obviously scratched and teeth marks. The raccoons even took the batteries out and chewed on them. This was in screened in porch with a small cat door. So if you plan to use outside while away, I would not recommend.
Takes one step out of our day, and quiets our kitty down!

We have an incredibly vocal cat, and feeding him ourselves only exacerbated the problem. We'd heard automatic feeders can help with this (they don't meow at things that don't respond), and it definitely did! Cut his meowing by at least 50%. The rest we've been able to control via a remote-controlled vibrator collar. We've only had this for a week, but so far it's worked great.

We have two feeders for two cats. I decided to put different colored stickers at top back edge of each bowl.The feeder bowl colors were synchronised So if one feeder does not open and all the food gets eaten from the opened bowl I can see that one feeder did not open because the sticker colors are different and they should be the same. This just happened and my husband could tell right away. We put in new batteries.
Worked for one weekend
on Oct 8, 2018
I bought this because I knew I'd be out of town on and off for a couple months. The first weekend I used it and it worked just as intended. The next two weekends I had it set up, it began to malfunction and didn't complete the rotation so the tray didn't align with the hole. After that it stopped working altogether. Luckily, I have roommates and they were able to rotate the tray manually, otherwise my baby would've gone hungry :(
So far, so good!

While I have someone who comes to feed my outdoor cat while I am away, it is only once a day. I was looking for a way to keep his food relatively fresh and safe from the birds (who eat it all the time). So far it works perfectly, and the cat seems to appreciate access to fresh food all day long, even when I am not on vacation.
Happy with Purchase!

Benny is an eat-til-he-drops feline with the body to show for it! Hence, why he has been on a portion-controlled diet for the past two years. The previous feeder we tried worked, but it had a clear food bin that dropped the kibble into a dish. He could see the food & started knocking it against the wall to force pieces to drop, which gave us headaches and made him even more food obsessed! This feeder is working better for him, so far (fingers & paws crossed!!). It’s much quieter than the other one since food is already in bowl (no dropping into a dish) and it’s more accurate, as I think the other gave varying amounts at times. He’s less anxious than before and camps himself at this feeder Benny is an eat-til-he-drops feline with the body to show for it!

I placed a piece of velcro stripping on bottom so it stays in one place on floor to ensure he doesn’t move it around since he’s a large cat. Good price so no regrets thus far!… more
A life saver -LOVE THIS!

I have a lab pup I have to keep contained while I work all day (gone 9 hrs). It's nice to have multiple feeders so I can put food in one, small treats in another for mid morning, food in another for lunch and then because towards the end of the day she gets anxiety being penned up I give her a calming chew in yet another compartment which gets her through until I get home. Then the last compartment feeds her dinner. She's even gotten rough with it a couple times and it held up. It was on sale for $39 but would have been worth the $50
We Love This Feeder For Our Allergic Frenchie Boy!
on Aug 30, 2018Top 250 Contributor
Our frenchie boy has allergies and needs a midnight snack of his prescribed kibble...we loathed waking up at 3 am for our babies mid night snacks... but if we didn't, he would throw up that stomach acid foam from hunger. We didn't want that!
This feeder is easy to program, we fill it with his food, set it for 3 am and leave it. It's AMAZING! No more alarms on our phones or wondering if the baby got fed his snacks while we were out of town!
Chewy has the best prices, great customer service and lighting fast shipping! We love Chewy, thank you!
5 STARS ACROSS THE BOARD!!
Great for small dogs, not so much for big dogs
on Sep 20, 2018
I really like the idea of this, and it works great. But for my german shepherds, they require 2 spots for one meal, so this '5 meal feeder' only feeds 2.5 meals for them. and it's also just thin plastic, so if you have a medium/large dog who likes to chew, this will likely get destroyed. I've taught my dogs to leave it alone while I'm home, but I wouldn't trust them left alone with it lol
