Raw Feeders - What Bowl Do You Use?
 
I know that a lot of raw feeders forego the bowl and feed on the ground, a towel, a tray, in a crate, or any number of other things. Because of who I live with, cleaning up after my dog eats raw is a concern, and I happily comply. However, I'd like to start feeding from a large bowl to make the cleaning even easier on myself. (I currently feed on a boot tray and wipe it down afterwards.

I'm planning on a stainless steel bowl, but am curious about what you all think about size(volume), whether to have the non-skid rubber on the bottom, even the height of the bowl lip. (and any other advice you might like to share) :)

Thanks in advance!

Stainless bowls with rounded bottoms. My dogs would prefer to eat off a flat surface. Most of the time they take the food out of the bowl, drop it on the floor or ground before rebite.

I love these.

I do not even remove the rubber ring before washing, and they do just fine in the dishwasher.

I use these in the 32oz size:

They have weighted bottoms, come in different colors, are dishwasher safe, are non skid, and the wife thinks they are cute.

I use a big stainless steel bowl... problem is all my dogs pull their food out of the bowl onto the floor anyways lol. Anyway you can feed in a crate then wipe down the bottom after to make the other person comfortable? I use 50/50 vinegar water mix to clean up after raw but warm soapy water works too.

Stainless bowl....but when I give her a chicken quarter or other larger "chunk" of raw...I put down a towel and let her consume the item off the towel...she does stay on the towel with the food...that took minimal training.

my dog eats in the crate, it's open though, I don't crate him. and I use the buckets that hang on the wall. he takes the food out and eats on the bed inside the crate. I don't clean anything. once in a blue I will wipe the bed. he sleeps in my bed. I guess I'm a pig.

My dog eats off of a old dinner plate on a raised platform I built.

It sounds like 2-3 quarts is the way to go, and having some rubber isn't a problem. Thank you all!

I use a pyrex glass dish.
