Before collecting my puppy I did a lot of research about what to buy and one thing I was told was to get a non tip bowl so that the puppy didn't get water all over the floor. My local Pets at Home has this stainless steel bowl with rubber trim for approsimately £4.99 so I bought it ready for my puppy.
The bowl looks good, is easy to clean and the rubber on the edge stops it moving around the floor as the dog drinks/eats. It doesn't tip over which is great although my dog manages to get water on the floor anyway either by putting his paw in and splashing it everywhere or dribbling it out of his mouth after drinking a mouthful!!
So why am I so disappointed with the bowl? The probem is that the rubber around the bottom has perished. It started cracking and splitting and I don't know why. It now comes off the bowl and without it the bowl in not heavy enough to stay in one place so skids along the floor making a horrible metal on tile noise!! I have had to stop using this bowl completely and have now opted for a heavy ceramic bowl which is also non tip and doesn't move around. Not as easy to clean but will last (unless I drop it!)
A lot of potential purchasers of this product are probably looking at this and thinking of buying it for their pet dog. I didn't buy this pets at Home Stainless Steel Non-Tip Dog Bowl for my pet dog - mainly because I don't have a dog! I bought it as a replacement for my old ceramic bowl I used for my pet snake. The problems I have faced in the past with having a water bowl in my snakes home (vivarium) are that usually the bowl is tipped over easily. I also had to buy quite a shallow bowl to help my snake in its quest for a drink.
The first thing I noticed about this product is the thick band of jet black rubber around the base of the bowl. Once placed on a flat surface in the vivarium I knew it would be difficult for my corn snake to tip it over - something I believe it does on purpose! The bwol is made from stainless steel and finished to a very highly polished state. The outside of the bowl also has dog pawprints and bones which ensure it doesn't look too plain. My snake doesn't seem to mind what he drinks from, as long as he gets his water and I don't want him to be able to tip it over very easily either!
Priced at £3.99 the Pets at Home Stainless Steel Non-Tip Dog Bowl gets a big thumbs up from me. Its small size probably wouldn't be ideal for all sizes of dog, but for the purpose I use it for it is perfectly proprtioned. The stainless steel finish also means that it is easy to clean and that has to be a major plus for anybody! pets at Home wouldn't be the first place that pops into my mind when it comes to reasonably priced pet accessories but this dog bowl lives up to my peculiar expectations.
At this present moment, my cat is sitting on my desk complaining that I have spent far too much time writing about my dogs, and I haven't written any reviews about him. (I know he's not happy with me because he is digging his claws into my thigh!!) After all, he is (apparently) the boss of the house, and it didn't take long for the dogs to find out which end of him was the sharp end.
So I suppose you're wondering why I am writing about a cat in a review for a dog bowl? Well, a friend of ours had a spare one of these (the bowl, not the cat) that she didn't need, and it was about the same time that we were looking for a nice water bowl for the cat. My cat doesn't like to drink from the dog's water bowl - that is sooo beneath him. The problem we had with his previous bowl was that he would occasionally tip it over. Not sure how he would do it (probably some sort of cat protest because his food dish was empty!), but we would suddenly find the counter covered in a pool of water. So we were after a non-tip bowl and came into ownership of the small version of this.
From the functional side, I always like stainless steel bowls because they are non rusting, no matter how many knocks and scrapes you give it, and you can put them on a hot wash in the dishwasher to get them really clean, so this would be ideal. More importantly with this bowl, the base is wider than the top, making it non-tip - hence the name. No matter how hard the cat tries, he can't tip it over - although that probably doesn't stop him trying. It also has a nice rubber ring around the bottom which means it is more anchored to the counter to prevent slippage. No doubt my cat will probably try and push it off the counter if he could as another 'no food' protest - although he hasn't worked that one out yet (we'll keep that as our secret!!).
Interestingly, the rubber ring also seems to be very dishwasher proof where we have washed the bowl countless times to no ill effect. A slight point worth noting that I found with my non-slip dog bowls was that it is worthwhile giving the rubber ring a quick wipe over every now and then. Dust etc will build up underneath the ring and eventually the grippiness between it and the counter will diminish. So a quick wipe removes the dust and allows the grippiness to be maintained.
Looking around at Pets at home, these bowls come in 3 sizes - small which is 21 cm wide by 5 cm deep, medium at 22.8 cm by 5.5 cm and large at 29.6 cm by 5.8 cm, with prices at £3.99, £4.99 and £7.99 respectively. We obviously only have the small one for the cat which is more than adequate to provide my cat's water needs, although he would probably want the large one so that he could push it off the counter to give the dogs a good soaking with it.
So in summary, whilst it would also be a great bowl for food and water for a dog to use, it is also a very good water bowl for a cat, and my cat says that that is obviously the primary use for it because 'Katz rool and dogs drool'. So highly recommended from him.
When we went on holiday this year we left our dog Alfie at my dad's for two weeks. When he returned home my dad had bought him several new things, including two of these stainless steel dog bowls.
Previously, he had 2 relatively small bowls that he would constantly move around the kitchen leaving pools of water and slobbery dog biscuits. I had become used to the wet socks in the morning but my dad couldn't stand his kitchen being in such a state so that's why he went out and bought him two of these stainless steel non - tip dog bowls.
When we got home my dad was really singing there praises and telling me how great they were. Not one to believe things easily, I couldn't wait to get them home to try them out. To my belief they did actually work really well!
The bowls have a small black ring going around the base made out of rubber and this acts as a stopper. Against wooden and tiled floors the rubber stops them from sliding around easily. I don't exactly know how it works but it is something to do with the combination of both of the substances interacting with each other. I therefore don't think they would work as well on carpet but I couldn't be sure as I have never tried it.
The bowls are very plain and simple, but that's the way I like it. They are silver and round; I think that's the most I can say about the appearance, there is nothing else going on with them. We have silver appliances so they do go really well in our kitchen. They can come in two sizes ours being the large costing £7.99 each. I do think this is a very high price for dog's bowls as we bought our previous ones for £1.00 each from the pound shop. However we didn't pay for them but I really don't think I would have bothered for that price.
They are very good dogs bowls and save a lot of hassle! My dog has never had any problems using them but to be honest I don't think his is bothered as long as he has food and water he is happy! The non - tip part of the bowl has worked really well and he has not been able to push his bowls around the kitchen every time he eats and drinks.
I will give these a four out of five, as they are very durable and they are easy to maintain and clean, i would recommend them but that's only if you are willing to fork out the high price tag!
Personally, I think I just have rebellious animals as not only have my cats been known to tip their bowls, move them around the room or just come into the living room, stick a paw in to a glass of drink and tip it but my dog also started the same thing with his bowl - sticking one giant paw in it and tipping the whole bowl. He used to have the standard stainless steel bowls but I decided to change them as I was getting a little annoyed of clearing up a flood of water at least twice a day.
When ordering a few other bits from Pets At Home, I decided to order him a couple of non tip bowls in the hope that he would get out of his newly found bad habit. The bowls come in three sizes - small, medium and large. I chose the large as my dog is a German Shepherd and each bowl cost £7.99.
I was pleased with the bowls when they arrived. They were sparkling, brand new stainless steel with a black rubber band going all the way around the bottom of the bowl to grip the floor and prevent tipping. I was pleased to see that the bowl was deep enough to fill with plenty of food and water but not too deep that my dog would feel like he was burying his nose in it.
The test was putting it to use. I filled the bowl with water to the usual level and I put it down for my dog. I watched him swagger over to it and drink some. He then started pawing at it and sticking his paw in to try and tip it. To be honest, he did look really sweet doing it but I could do without a small flood each day! I continued watching as he tried to move the bowl but nothing was working. He managed to get it to move slightly but nowhere near enough. After 10 minutes of trying, he finally gave up! Result!
The bowls are nice and light weight - the key is the rubber gripping band around the base. It really does just stick hard to the floor - believe me, I had my doubts when I saw the bowls and thought there was no possible way they would hold but they really do. The bowls are also really easy to clean too - just a bit of soapy water and a good rinse brings them up sparkling again. I have had the bowls for a good few weeks now and my dog has still not managed to tip them and has pretty much given up trying now.
An absolutely great buy! Highly recommended for all tipping doggies!
When I had my gorgeous Border Collie I shopped for everything at Pets At Home as I knew it would always be good quality and not too expensive. One of the things I ended up having to buy him was a non slip dog bowl as he used to just play football with his bowls and the result was my kitchen floor covered in water!!! Bad times!
I went to the store and saw a range of the bowls available which came in different sizes starting at £2.99 for a small dog all the way up to £7.99 for a large dog. As my collie was a big one, I had to buy the big bowl - he used to drink water like he just couldn't get enough so my thinking was the biggest bowl would be best and wouldn't require endless filling up!
The bowls are made from very durable stainless steel and have a black rubber trim to keep the bowl in place. The rubber ring is great for making sure the bowl doesn't slip or move on the floor. Originally I had a plastic feeding mat down with the bowls on, but he soon realised that he could move the mat round to spread the water so I just put the bowls down on the laminate floor and it had a great effect. Of course with force he could still move the bowl but he soon lost interest when it wasn't easy to do. The dog bowls are extremely easy to clean and can be washed up with your normal dishes and they are also non rusting which is a good thing as I washed mine regularly. I am unsure whether they are dishwasher proof but I would imagine they would be fine with the only worry being that the trim may come off.
The dimensions and price of the bowls are as follows:
Small: 5 x 21 x 21cm £3.99
Medium: 5.5 x 22.8 x 22.8cm £5.99
Large: 5.8 x 29.6 x 29.6cm £7.99
Since I have sadly lost my dog, I gave the bowls to my mum for her dog to use and though he is a smaller dog (King Charles Cavalier) there hasn't been a problem for him in using a larger bowl than he was used to and she has found that there is no mess at all since using these!
While I think £7.99 may seem like a lot to pay for a dog bowl, I do think it was worth it as they have lasted for well over two years, which is much better than the plastic alternatives, still come up like new and save on a lot of cleaning up!!
I highly recommend these high quality dog bowls! I give the bowls five out of five dooyoo stars!!
Thank you for reading my review :)
My dog bobby the boxer loved nothing more than tipping his water bowl up over the floor much to my frustration. I have had a few non tip bowls in hope to stop his silly nonsense but none of them worked until i tried the extra large pets at home non tip bowls.
Pets at home non tip bowls cost from £2.99 and up the bigger the size the more it costs. They come in size small for small breeds medium, large and for my big boxer witch costs £7.99.
The bowls are nice and shiny made from stainless steal. The bowls have a rubber ring grip around the base of them to get the bowl grip the floor. Although the bowl is large it is very shallow in the middle that holds the water its the base of the bowl that is extra large.
When the bowl is full of water i have watched bobby flicking it with his nose and paw and the most he has been able to do was move it slightly that caused a small trickle of water to land on the floor so far so good he has not tipped the bowl over the floor. I have been using the bowl for around five months now.
The bowls are easy to clean, durable and not heavy in weight very light actually.
Put a stop to your doggy bowl tipping troubles and try the pets at home non tip bowls they are great and worked for me and bobby.
I loved the big shop my mum and I had in Pets at Home before we got Poppy and Coco. I had written a huge list of all of the essentials that we would need to buy and had a budget. Unfortunately for the bank balance, excitement for the new arrivals of our family took hold and we spent a lot more than the budget I had set. One of the essentials that we bought was Pets at Home Stainless Steel Non-Tip Dog Bowl.
Pets at Home Stainless Steel Non-Tip Dog Bowl is the easy to clean way to feed your dog.

This stainless steel non-tip dog bowl is available for the following prices:
I am more than happy to pay this price for this dog bowl as it is hardwearing and doesn't go flying when my dogs are tucking into their food at dinnertimes.
The packaging: The packaging for this bowl is minimal. It is packaged with just a piece of cardboard which explains what the product is attached by a small piece of plastic. This does the job effectively.
The Bowl: This is a stainless steel bowl which is finished with a rubber rim on the bottom which doesn't allow it to be tipped over by your dog. There aren't too many distinguishing features about this product but what I do quite like are the cute little embossed bones that can be seen around the outside of the bowl.
Is this bowl the easy to clean way to feed your dog? In my opinion it most definitely is. All you need to do it fill the bowl with your dogs food and place it on a flat surface. For us this is the kitchen floor. Then your dog can happily enjoy his food without tipping it out of the bowl. It may slide from side to side a little, but it most certainly does not tip over and spill everywhere.
Is this bowl easy to clean? Pets at Home Stainless Steel Non-Tip Dog Bowl is a product that is very easy to clean. You simply need to wash it up as though you would anything else. The stainless steel bowl with its rubber trim cause you no problems when it comes to cleaning. Simply wash away.
Does the non slip rubber trim keep the bowl in place? The rubber trim keeps the bowl from tipping over however it doesn't keep it in one place. My dogs are very passionate about their food... they are Labradors after all therefore the bowl does move from side to side a little. Thus far they have yet to tip it out.
Is it the perfect hardwearing classic down bowl for messy dogs? Yes! It is a classic stainless steel dog bowl that really is perfect for mucky mutts. It is solid with a great rubber trim.
Sizes: Pets at Home Stainless Steel Non-Tip Dog Bowl is available in a small, medium and large. The dimensions are as follows:

How Long Does It Usually Last? Pets at Home Small Stainless Steel Non-Tip Dog Bowl usually looks as good as new for months as it doesn't rust. If you clean it regularly I would say that it can last you a year easily.
*Would I Recommend This Product?*
Pets at Home Small Stainless Steel Non-Tip Dog Bowl is a superb product that fulfils its requirements entirely. At a reasonable price I see absolutely no reason why I would not recommend this to any dog owners out there that are looking for a bowl that doesn't tip over when their pooches are munching away at their breakfast or dinner.
Poppy and Coco have gone from having the small bowl when they were puppies, the medium bowl as they were growing to now having the large bowl. Each and every time I have been happy with the purchase hence why I have stuck with the same design. The bowl fulfils all objectives: doesn't tip over, easy to clean, refrains from mess being made, etc. Make this purchase for your furry friends and you won't be disappointed.
Recently we got a black lab and the shopping list was neverending, it was based on toys and pillows, but we also had to buy sensible things, we had to find out which was the right food for her and that is what brough us to this bowl.
We have had the puppy for about 3 to 4 months and the bowl still stays standing. We got the medium one for her food and the larger one for her water and no damages or any signs of deformation what so ever.
Allthough if you have a large dog I would recommend buying a stand for it as my puppy gets bigger she has to bend down quite a bit and this causes discofort for her so she eats a lot better with a stand.
It is quite plain which for me is a good thing so she shares no interest for it and hasn't tried to chew it once.
She is quite a messy eater so being not tip does help other wise the food would be everywhere apart from her bowl.
I didn't think I would ever be writing reviews for pet accessories, but here I am ....
Getting ready for a puppy was very much like preparing for the birth of our first child!! We were all excited about the new arrival and were desperate to purchase some items for our new addition. Excited, and with a list of essential puppy items, we headed for our nearest Pets at Home Store.
My brother, who already has a dog, has been our point of reference. He advised us that we would need a good food bowl that doesn't slip. When I saw the pets at Home Stainless Steel Non- Tip Dog Bowl, I decided that this was just what we were looking for. I bought two bowls. One for water and one for food.
The smaller bowl is suitable for water; both are made from durable stainless steel. They are easy to clean and the rubber non slip trim keeps the bowl in place while your dog is eating or drinking.
Because it is stainless steel it is non-rusting.
The bowl is available in three sizes although we have only purchased the small and medium sized bowls.
Small Bowl: 5 x 21 x 21cm
Medium Bowl: 5.5 x 22.8 x 22.8cm
Large: 5.8 x 29.6 x 29.6cm
Small Bowl : £3.99
Medium Bowl : £4.99
Large Bowl : £7.99
Well you can't test out a bowl with out a dog..... Maddy our Flatcoated Retriever came home with us when she was just 8 weeks old (3 weeks ago!). The first thing we gave her was water and a meal. The bowls are on the tiled floor of our utility room. Maddy is not the tidiest eater, but the bowls do not slip or tip in her enthusiasm. They clean easily and after almost four weeks they still look new.
As Maddy grows we will need to buy the large bowl to hold her food. I am really happy with this purchase and would reccommend it to other pet owners.
