It may seem like an aesthetic choice, but in actual fact, the material that your beloved dog’s food and water bowls are made out of is incredibly important. Regardless of what part of the wold you’re from, you need to consider where it will be placed and how the weather will affect the bowls.
In the height of summer, sunshine can heat metal bowls to become excruciatingly hot. Not only will this heat the water, but the unbearably hot metal could burn your poor pup’s tongue. It’s important to keep metal bowls in shade, and to consider heat-resistant bowls as an alternative.
Similar problems arise in cold weather conditions, too. If the metal becomes very cold, or even freezing, your dog’s tongue could stick to the cold metal and could end in a very painful and potentially scarring affair.
Keep an eye out on how the bowls you use change in response to the weather, and try to find other alternatives to protect your precious pet.
