Dogs from childhood should eat without leaning to the floor. This is especially true of heavy, large breeds. This will allow your pet to avoid many problems, because when eating from a low level, the load on the forelimbs increases many times, swallowing and passage of food is difficult, the forearm is bent, etc. The bowl should stand on a stand, being at the level of the muzzle.
But the puppy is growing, so the bowl needs to be raised higher. Commercially available floor coasters are not very convenient, the roads, and occupy a place on the floor. I offer you a universal option, which, moreover, will allow you to change the height of the bowl as the puppy grows.
The design of the feeder is very simple – a metal rim with a bowl is mounted on a vertical board bolted to the wall.
First you need to bend a thin metal bar in a circle around the diameter of the dog bowl. I used a bar with a diameter of 6 mm. In order not to damage the bowl, I used an old-sized pan suitable in size.
1. BENDING A BAR
I bend the tips of the bar perpendicular to the circle at an angle of 45 degrees so that there is a gap of about 5 to 8 cm between them. Their length should be equal to the thickness of the board. I cut off the excess with a hacksaw and cut the ends with a file to remove burrs.

2. FOLD THE TIPS
3. CUT OFF MORE
4. FILL OUT
On the board I mark and drill two holes for fastening to the wall. Several pair of holes, which will be inserted into the legs of the rim, drilled at an angle. This is necessary in order to securely hold the rim in a wooden rack. Drill need to take a slightly smaller diameter than the rod.
5. BORED AT ANGLE
I insert the legs into the bottom pair of board holes and carefully hammer in with a hammer.
Now you need to note on the wall, at what level is the puppy’s face. I drill holes in the wall and screw the feeder. When the dog grows up, it will be possible to raise the bowl to a new level.
