Pedestal Dog Bowl
I needed a water bowl that my new puppy couldn't knock over or climb into and I've seen several of these on Pinterest lately so I thought I'd give it a try.
What you'll need:
- Pedestal Planter - I've had mine for years, but you should be able to find one at your local garden center. I've also seen these made using the plastic urns like this one from Amazon.
- Bowl - My bowl is an old 4 Liter Pyrex mixing bowl that I had stuffed in the back of a cabinet. Just make sure that yours has a small lip that sits on the edge of the planter. If it doesn't have the lip it will be difficult to remove whenever you need to clean it.
- Spray Paint - I used Rustoleum 2X Satin Green Apple
Now the fun part! What color should I paint it? I pulled all of the fullest cans of paint that I had because you never know what color might surprise you and look great. I decided to go with the green in the front - Green Apple. It seemed like it would be a fun color instead of the expected white or gray.
This should make it a lot easier to keep fresh water for the puppy when we're outside playing. No more flipping it over or plopping down in the bowl. And I won't have to worry about her getting too big for it because it's substantial enough to stand on its own even when she's full grown.
