While Roadie may not be as tall as most dogs, we still wanted to raise his bowls up just a bit to make eating and drinking a bit more comfortable. Enter, the Plywood Pattern Dog Bowl Stand.
Designed to lift the bowls off the ground to give dogs a better eating and drinking position, dog bowl stands also help hold the bowls in place so your pup doesn’t chase them around while they’re scarfing down their food. Plus, they add a nice decorative element to something that otherwise looks a bit messy.
We designed this one to coordinate with the Dog Butt Leash Organizer we made when we first adopted this energetic ball of hair.
However, rather than going with the herringbone plywood pattern again, we decided to switch it up slightly and go with a chevron plywood pattern.
It’s similar enough to coordinate but not be matchy matchy.
