Neater Feeder

Kelly doesn't have the neatest table manners. She scatters kibble with enthusiastic dining, and slobbers her water. So, when I was asked to review the Neater Feeder, I thought it was a product we could really, uhhh, sink our teeth into.

Neater Feeder is an award-winning pet feeding system for dogs and cats, designed to take the mess out of mealtime. It contains spills and splashes, and separates spilled food from spilled water. The water drains into a reservoir to keep floors nice and dry.

The Neater Feeder was easy to assemble. We set it up, added food and water and left the rest up to Kelly. At first, she was hesitant to try it out. The feeder is deep, with high sides. For some dogs, putting their face down into the feeder may be upsetting. I put a treat in the food bowl and left Kelly alone. It didn't take her too long to grab the treat and run. She was more hesitant to eat her food out of the feeder but after several days she got used to it.

*Keeps eating area neat and dry
*Protects floors
*Easy to assemble
*Optional legs (included) can elevate food bowls if desired
*Delivers on just what it promises--contains food and water spills

*Some dogs may not like the closed-in feeling of the feeder

*Attractiveness?? It is a bit large and clunky looking, but depending upon where you put your dog's food bowls, that may not bother you at all.

I would definitely recommend the Neater Feeder to anyone looking for a solution to messy mealtimes and slippery kitchen floors. Find out more on Neater Feeder website, or connect with Neater Feeder on Facebook.

Is messy mealtime a problem in your home? What are your solutions?

*Full disclosure: I received a free Neater Feeder in exchange for my honest opinions in this blog post.


  1. Seems to me that it would be a lot more to clean up than just the floor! But then I have had a neat little eater for 13 years, and I may have forgotton how sloppy dogs can be.

  2. It looks great but some reason I think the Newfs would still find a way to make a big mess!

  3. Sometimes our food doesn't last long enough to make a mess...heehee!

  4. Great idea. I my need it but my Lily is very neat

  6. This does seem like a good idea, but I think I would still manage to get water half way down the hallway! BOL!

  7. Two of my dogs seem to find a reason to separate the "bad kibbles" from the ones they eat, making a mess. This looks like a solution.

  8. We love our Neater Feeder so much we've made room for it in the Winnebago! It says a lot about a product if you'll dedicate precious floor space to it in your RV. =)

  9. That sounds like a great product! Holly eats her fast so fast it doesn't have time to make a mess!! She has a very big appetite! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

  10. I think that looks like a good product.

    Couple of things though..."assembly" and I don't get along real well lol also, I couldn't use this because Cody likes to share Dakota's water (he won't drink out of his own bowl) and he would never like this.

    If I just had a dog and not a cat I would consider it. But since I have both I couldn't do it.

  11. BOL! I think Kolchak would still find a way to soak the floor. I swear, he must slurp up a mouthfull of water and deliberately spit it on the floor! Neat idea though...

  12. This product sounds great. My three cats leave a big mess and every day, I sweep up food and throw it away. I would love something like this, but my cats would probably hate it.

  13. Looks like a neat little product.


Kelly and Ike say thank you for your comments!
