What size food bowl/water bowl?

I went to walmart and they have a nice stainless steel one that has a rubber seal on the bottom and snapped well to prevent tipping over. They have 3 sizes. Small med and large. I will say the large one is bigger then the ones you find at petco or pet smart. Do I need one that big when my pup grows up? And what about a water bowl? Same size?

What do you have?

If you want one to last a long time, get one for a full grown size GSD, a pup can still eat out of it.

We use a water dish that has two bowls attached to each other, so its like two large bowls in one!.. So i fill it up 2-3 times a day for all the dogs, also my dog has a tendency to drag it across the floor when its almost empty, (even if there is a little water, she is quite picky) so if i had anything bigger than this, i think i would need more than a towel to clean it up, otherwise i might have gone with something bigger so i only have to refresh water once a day..

Food dish size, 2 quart i would say is about average size. That would probably work just fine!

I would get the large size bowls simply to save cash in the furture, IMO they dont care what they eat out of as long as they are eating lol

Definitely the large.... My girl outgrew hers SO fast! Just make sure it is low enough that your pup can eat and drink comfortably.

Try and get a weighted or a heavy ceramic water bowl, one that can't be tipped or pulled over.


if your GSD is eating and eating and eating and losing weight - please consider testing for EPI.
