Are Ceramic or Metal Bowls Better For Dogs?

Every dog owner wants the best for their pup, and when you're choosing non slip dog bowls, there is such a vast range of choice, it can be difficult to know where to start!

The AllPetSolutions canine team regularly receives enquiries about how to choose the right dog bowl, so we've summarised the key decision factors here to help you make an informed choice!

Is a Stainless Steel Dog Bowl Best for My Dog?

Stainless steel is one of the most popular metals used in dog feeders and is great because:

  • It can't crack or smash.
  • The bowl won't break if a clumsy pooch knocks it off of a raised feeding station.
  • They can be rinsed out and cleaned easily.

There are some downsides to be aware of - mainly in that metal bowls aren't the quietest, so if you've got a noisy eater, they can clang and make noise during dinnertime!

However, stainless steel is dishwasher friendly, durable and robust, plus its break-proof for larger breeds that get enthusiastic about their tea.

Our favourites include:

  • The smart Twill Dog Bowl range in multiple sizes and colours, with a non-slip base and convenient stainless steel inner bowl.
  • Our Elevated Diamond Dog Bowl, for fuss-free eating without any bending or leaning.

Which Dog Ceramic Bowls are Easiest to Clean?

Ceramic is another popular option, and well it is more susceptible to breakages than stainless steel, is still non-porous, easy to clean and safe to use.

The big bonus with ceramic dog bowls is that they come in a massive range of colours, designs and styles. We love the Trixie Princess Bowl, in a sugary sweet pink design for the regal pups in your life!
