Dog Product Feature: DentaDish – “The Only Teeth Cleaning, Slow Feeding Dog Bowl” (Give-Away)

FROM DAKOTA’S DEN: I didn’t begin to test the bowl until a week before it was time to write this review. I received a DentaDish in exchange for my honest review, but noticed that I received a LARGE BOWL which  is recommended for dogs OVER 40 lbs. Dakota should have received a small.  (Dakota is under 30 lbs). He eats a much smaller quantity of food at each meal than a large dog would, so, I decided to share this bowl with you as a PRODUCT FEATURE as opposed to a PRODUCT REVIEW. (Receiving the wrong sized bowl is my fault and not the fault of DentaDish, I should have immediately looked at the size upon receipt, but I did not.) Because I didn’t have the right sized bowl to give a valid review, I did not want to mislead anyone by saying that this bowl works, when in fact with the wrong sized bowl, I cannot definitively say that it would without having tested it properly. I always want to be honest and upfront with all of you. I think the bowl looks fabulous and we will always share products that we HAVE USED AND LIKED, OR WOULD CONSIDER USING, OR THOSE THAT WE THINK WOULD INTEREST OUR READERS, EVEN IF WE HAVE NOT USED THE ITEM.

Let me tell you I am NOT a fan of going to the dentist! (This is the HUMAN talking!) I was just there a few days ago and spent a grueling 4 hours there! NOT fun! That being said, taking care of our teeth is extremely important, some dentist visits can’t be avoided, things happen, but some things CAN be avoided or managed with the proper care. The same is true for our pets.

I have always been an advocate of regular dental exams for my pets, starting with my first cat, who was genetically predisposed to having gum issues. My first cat had his teeth cleaned yearly.

Dakota had his first teeth cleaning at the Vet approx. two years ago, and a few months ago he had his second cleaning. I admit that when it comes to brushing his teeth, I am not as good as I should be. I am NOT alone.

From DentaDish:Oral hygiene for pets has often been looked at as a chore and is sometimes forgotten about completely. Many people don’t know that eight out of ten dogs show signs of oral disease by the age of three, and untreated dental disease can actually spread to a pup’s vital organs creating serious medical issues.

DentaDish is the easy to use, slow feeder bowl that actually cleans teeth while dogs eat. It helps prevent doggy dental and gum disease, which is the leading cause of many health problems including bad breath. Though typically dog breath isn’t taken as a serious problem, it is actually the most common sign of oral disease in dogs. DentaDish is the only dog bowl that is clinically proven to reduce the formation of plaque, tartar and gingivitis. Soft bristles on the inside of the bowl gently yet effectively clean teeth, slow down eating and help keep food in the bowl.

Slowing down a pet’s eating helps to reduce excess air intake and prevents bloating. Food bloat, or twisted stomach, occurs when a dog eats too quickly and gulps down a lot of air. The air turns into gas and causes the abdomen to swell, putting pressure on the heart, lungs, and other organs. Dogs who gulp down their food might also not feel satisfied which can cause over eating and begging. DentaDish’s soft bristles break up the bowls surface area, preventing dogs from being able to inhale their food. DentaDish can make mealtime last up to ten times longer compared to regular bowls.

DentaDish is made with food-safe materials and is both BPA and Phthalate free. The non-skid rubber bottom keeps the bowl in place, prevents spills and creates a firm grip on slippery surfaces. The durable, food-safe materials and co-molded construction make DentaDish safe for dishwashers. DentaDish comes in two convenient sizes and includes measurement lines (cups and grams) on the inside of the bowl to make sure the appropriate amount of food is served. The small size fits up to two cups of food and is recommended for dogs under 40lbs, while the larger bowl can fit up to four cups of food and is recommended for dogs over 40lbs.

DentaDish is the easiest most efficient way ever to feed dogs while helping to maintain good oral health and hygiene.

Pet Products: Help Support The Kinn Kleanbowl On Indiegogo

Disclosure:I was NOT compensated monetarily  for sharing this information. I was sent a Kinn  Kleanbowl  in exchange for  promoting their campaign.

The average pet bowl has more than 1,000,000 dangerous germs that can harm pets, and take years off their life. In addition, when pets drink water from the average pet bowl, bacteria forms a biofilm around the bowl that cannot simply be washed away, water fountain carbon filters and paper food trays spread germs around rather than eliminate them, and dishwashers do not get hot enough to kill all germs. What’s more, these germs create odors that deter pets from eating or drinking from their bowl, and can make pets sick. Pets smell and taste the Kleanbowl germ-free health advantages, and prefer to drink and eat from a Kleanbowl vs. their ordinary pet bowl and water fountain, as you can see at the Kleanbowl Challenge,

Meet Kleanbowl The Healthier Pet Bowl

“Experience Healthier, Guilt-Free Convenience”

The Kleanbowl features a germ-resistant stainless steel rim with an anti-skid rubber ring on the bottom to prevent moving and spilling, and secures the biodegradable Nourish-Pet Refill in place. The Nourish-Pet Refills are made from sugar cane fiber, so after each use, pet parents can recycle the biodegradable and soak-proof refill, and replace with a new one to ensure pets are drinking clean water for more effective hydration, as well as enjoy healthier meals.

The Kinn Kleanbowl has many germ-free health advantages including healthier hydration, nutrition and quality of life. Also, independent third-party research from Sterling Consulting and the Pet Sustainability Coalition show that using the Kleanbowl can help reduce consumers’ carbon footprint by reducing the use of electricity by 32%, reducing the use of water by 21% and reducing Greenhouse gases by 43% vs. washing ordinary pet bowls.

Fabulous Friday Find- “Neater Feeder”

Hi everyone!  It’s   Dakota and  am I ever excited to tell you about my latest find!!

As many of you know, doggies can be messy eaters,  for  that matter, kitties can be as well, but since this is a DOG BLOG we aren’t going to worry about THEIR mess today! It wasn’t so much that I was particularly messy with MY food, the problem in our house was the WATER!

You see, Shelties are pretty smart. If my Mom and Dad were remiss slow on the uptake about   filling my water bowl enough, I had an excellent way of reminding them. I used to knock my water bowl over on to the floor! It was sooo much fun! Occasionally there would be some water left in the bowl and it would make the prettiest patterns on my Mom’s Pergo floor!

Also, Mom does laundry in the same area that my bowl is in and she was notorious for knocking it over and spilling water everywhere! It was sooo much fun to watch! The same thing would happen when either Mom or Dad would fill my water bowl, they are  too lazy to pick up the bowl, so they often lean over the baby gate, (we should have called it “Watergate” but I digress), to fill it and yep, you got it! They would overfill my bowl and I would have fun listening to them bark curse and blame each other for HOURS!

Sadly the water show is over.

Back in May Mom was reading a favorite blog of hers called:

Click on the photo to visit them! They are always featuring the BEST give-aways! You could win something great too!

and she read about a give-away that was being held by a  site called Sweep Tight  and the give-way was for a fabulous product called

NEATER FEEDER

AND GUESS WHAT?

MOM WON!!!

WHAT A  “LUCKY DOG”!!!

This is what it looks like

Click photo to visit their website!

From the Neater Feeder website:

“The Neater Feeder is designed with protective walls to contain splashes and spills from an inadvertent kick or an excited pet. This revolutionary system holds spilled food in an upper reservoir while spilled water flows down a gentle slope through a patent-pending filtering system.

The spilled water drains into a lower reservoir that can safely contain more than an entire bowl of spilled water, keeping it off the floor until you are ready to dispose of it. Keeping the spilled food in the upper reservoir, off the floor, not only saves you work, but also keeps it clean for reuse.”

My Neater Feeder

Isn’t this great? Even the color is fabulous! There is NEVER water on the floor anymore!

Check out this video that shows how the Neater Feeder works (there is no music or sound so feel free to bark amongst yourselves!)


When Mom won the Neater Feeder there was NOTHING obligating her to have me tell you about this great product!  Mom and I love it so much that we wanted  YOU to know about it! We also wanted to share the great sites that enabled Mom to win this fabulous product that ACTUALLY DOES WHAT IT IS DESIGNED TO DO!!!

You may take a walk on over to Neater Feeder right here

While you are doing that, I am going to try to think of a NEW way to make a mess!!!! Wish me luck!!

Barks and licks and love, Dakota
