Automatic Pet Feeder: Dinner is Served!

Automatic Pet Feeder: Dinner is Served!

Automatic pet feeders are the ideal way to feed your pet when you can’t be there to do it yourself. We all have busy schedules these days, and as important as our dogs are to us, we can’t always be depended upon to be home at exactly the same time every night – in time to feed the dog.

Since dogs, like people, are healthiest when they’re fed at the same time every day, something does need to be done to make certain that your beloved pooch gets his or her vittles on time every day. The solution? That’s right, the automatic pet feeder.

Many of today’s automatic pet feeders have programmable systems which will control how much your pet eats, and when s/he is served. So whether you’re a little bit late in the evening sometimes, or you know that your dog enjoys a light lunch while you’re away every day, an automatic dog feeder is exactly what you need.

Make certain that the automatic pet feeder has a chew proof cord and food storage compartment, and be sure that the food is kept in a place where it will stay fresh. After all, even if s/he’s fed on time, it won’t do too much good if it’s coming from a dangerous device, or one that lets the food go stale.

Automatic pet feeders usually come in different sizes, depending on the type of pet you have, and the size of the individual animal. For example, a kitten and a Great Dane certainly wouldn’t need the same amount of food for each meal. Neither would a Great Dane and a Beagle. Therefore, you need to be sure that the automatic pet feeder you buy is either the right size, or it allows you to select the amount of food that will be given to your dog each time.

Benefits of a quality automatic pet feeder include:

  • Programmable timer
  • Bowl and food container that are easy to clean
  • Chew-proof cord
  • Container or dispenser for the right amount of food for your dog
  • Extra storage, so that if you “forget” one day, your dog won’t starve
  • Built-in backup battery in case of power failure

Another nice feature that you may want to look for, is an automatic pet feeder that also dispenses water, to make certain that your dog will have fresh water all day long. And if you really want to go all the way, look for one that has a built-in water filter, to make sure that water’s pure.

A few of the automatic dog feeders that are out now also have a “feeding time” noise that sounds so that your dog will know when dinner is served. In some, this consists of a simple beeping sound, while others allow you to record your own voice, so that you can call your pet to his or her meal, even when you’re not home.
