Independent-faced dogs rejoice — there’s now a bowl made just for you! A simple twist on the traditional design, The Loving Bowl introduces a new take on mango bowls.
How can you improve the design of the average dog bowl? “You can’t,” you reply. “It’s a pot – how are you going to improve it? Add on lasers?” Well, I have to admit, the laser beam upgrade is pretty awesome, and I’m willing to pay for it. I think more along the lines of how to make food more accessible to your dog, while cutting down on mess and chance of bloat. It helps that The Loving Bowl thought of a way to make all of this happen, because honestly, I still stick with the laser beam idea (PEW! PEW!).

With its generously sized feeding area, The Loving Bowl’s design offers a ramp that’s always exposed and pets instinctively know how to use it (Oscar snapped it up in a few tries—some dogs may take a little longer than others). Pets can maneuver them off from the bottom of the bowl onto the ramp, where they can scoop their food with ease. 45 degrees allows the pet to separate his food in the bowl, while enjoying a comfortable feeding position.
That means no more trash on the floor — seriously, like finding the kibble path to Oscar’s hiding spots with the old bowl. Now, he eats his food where it’s meant…in his bowl! It also comes with a dip in the front of the bowl, which allows the pet to reach its food effortlessly without augmenting its neck and gravitational pull. Other bonuses: Love Loving can help with digestion issues; Reduce gas and bloating. slows down the process of eating; And keep your pet’s face clean.
