We have an eight year old Great Dane, Samson, that we have had since he was 8 weeks old. He is our third kid and is about as sweet as they come.Large dogs must eat/drink from an elevated dog bowls. Since we are DIY kind of people, we made our own version when he was little and have been using the same method ever since.These are cheap side tables from Target (I think we got them 5 years ago for $10 each). Steve used a jigsaw to cut a circle to inlay the dog bowls. The stainless steel bowls are from a pet store and we have had them for as long as we have had Samson. These are the perfect height and the bowls can easily be lifted in and out.
Before cutting, make sure to measure the bowl below the “lip” of your dog bowl so the bowl doesn’t fall through the hole! I clean mine with soap and water and they have held up remarkably well. This is our second set of DIY elevated tables in 8 years (which includes 4 moves with him).We purchased the first set of tables at IKEA, and this set is from Target. This project is quick and inexpensive if you are in need of elevated dog bowls for your pooch!
IKEA still sells these LACK side tables for $9.99.
I couldn’t have a “dog'” post without mentioning our second Great Dane, Hillary, who passed away a year ago in March. If you are a dog lover, you can read about her here.
