We all love our dogs but sometimes we have to leave them alone. It can be difficult for both of you to be away from your dog, whether you need to work late or your dog walker is sick. There is one thing we can do for our dogs to make their lives easier: get them on a regular food schedule.
It is not only healthier for your dog to eat at the same time each day, but it can also help you live a more comfortable life. Dogs that eat on a regular schedule are more likely to have accidents. A regular diet can help you detect if your dog is sick. Often, a lack in appetite is the first sign your dog is sick.
Consider these things before you buy an auto dog feeder
Consider your current routine and feeding habits. Do you rush home to feed your dog? Are they more likely to eat smaller meals or one large meal a day? Do you prefer digital systems or automatic timers that release the food? Do you think it is important to have a manual option? It all depends on you and your pet’s preference.
It is worth considering bonus features! You can get a dog feeder with many other perks that make it easier to be apart, such as video cameras, phone status updates, and fun food games to keep your dog happy.
