Howdy, everyone! I hope that you are well? I think my blog sometimes is becoming nothing but posting about dogs and amazing products I have found for them, but that is ok. I love my dogs so very much and would only want the best for them including food, toys, beds (which I have the perfect posting coming soon), and dog dishes. I used to not care much for what type of dog dish I had because I did not feel that I needed to pay attention but I was wrong and found this out a couple of years ago that it is super important to have the right bowl for your dog.
There are so many bowls out there, but today I wanted to share with you the LE BOL™-BORDEAUX because I feel this is the perfect bowl for my babies because of the style and how it is made. But first, off I wanted to tell you some of the reasons why a plastic bowl is not the best for your fur baby. I used to use plastic bowls, just head over to Walmart and get them, right? Yet. This is not the best choice for a couple of reasons.
Why You Should Reconsider A Plastic Dog Bowl
I think most people are like myself and until a few years ago only ever used plastic dog bowls, but this might not be the best choice.
- Bactria- Plastic bowls have a tendency to crack or scratch this leaves little open gaps. This can harbor unhealthy bacteria for your pet.
- Durability- As most of you know I have a new puppy, and the worst bowl that you can give them is a plastic bowl. This is because they are teething! They might get the idea to make that delicious bowl into a toy. Plastic is a very harsh product and can cause many problems if digested. The plastic can cause internal bleeding or intestinal blockage.
- Phthalates & BPA- Now I am no expert, but many of us have moved away from brands that use these chemicals, but I think that we tend to forget our little babies? I don’t think that many dog bowl companies tend to really care if their products contain BPA or Phthalates but this is something that you need to consider. We know that Phthalates can cause serious problems in us so why not take the same measures you would for your little furry friend sitting at your feet?
There are many other problems with using a plastic dog bowl, but for me, those are the top three. Sure, there are so plastic bowls out there that might be just fine but why take the chance?
The Anatomy Of The Perfect Dog Bowl: LE BOL-BORDEAUX
There are a lot of dog bowls out there that are not plastic, and I wanted to share with you one of those options that I feel is perfect for your little baby. It is from Loving Pets called the LE BOL-BORDEAUX. This bowl is not only super stylish but has the makings of what I consider the perfect dog dish. It is so shiny that it’s reflecting my lighting above 🙂
The LE BOL-BORDEAUX has a couple of features that I think are amazing the first being the bottom of the bowl itself. It actually has a rubber coating so that it does not skid across the floor. I often laugh when my boy Ricky is eating because he chases his bowl around the kitchen.
The second feature that I adore about this bowl is that it is dishwasher safe. I highly recommend that you clean your dog dishes frequently, in fact, I do it after each meal. You don’t need to put it in the dishwasher but make sure to use hot water and soap to really give it a good cleaning.
Features At A Glance:
- Dishwasher Safe
- Low Noise
- Extremely durable
- Cleans easily
- Spill preventing
- Rubber Base
I really just love everything about the Loving Pets LE BOL-BORDEAUX dog bowl. From the design to the style of the bowl everything is just perfect not to mention all the colors that they come in. There are a couple of sizes when it comes to this bowl which you can see here. I would highly recommend check this bowl out and consider switching your dog dishes.
