Perfect for my Service Dog
My mother in law picked this up for me in a magazine years ago! I was excited to see them carried here for when it's time to purchase new.
I feel I know best than most people if this product is worth it because I have a service dog. These are the bowls we use whenever we are out for a long day. They are handy, easy to carry, and easy to clean.
I will say the water holder is pointless if you have a large dog. If you are planning on doing hiking, sure it's nice. But it's not nearly enough water for my dog if we were doing strenuous amounts of activity.
Also I have removed the water compartment completely as my dog is 125 lbs and needs the whole container for just 1 meal, haha. But with that said...water is easy to come by when out. So having the two bowls and just taking one to a water fountain or sink works great.
Also this carrying case keeps the smell of dog food in. You can put it in your purse (or backpack) and not worry about it making your bag smell like dog food.
It is plastic. And disintegrates just like any plastic bowl does. So it is not good to let a dog use very regularly. Which is why I will be purchasing a new one soon. HOWEVER - these plastic bowls have a seal on the inside so it is not to bad. But the outside does not have that.
So yes I recommend it. Small dogs - it will fit two meals for the day and depending on how small, you may be able to fill the water container. But for the big boys...don't get this if you are looking for something that will house all the food for your dog for 1 day. My dog is 125lbs and it just about fits 4 cups worth of dog food (that is one meal for him). But if all you want is something for days when you'll be out and they won't be home for 1 meal, get this,
I will recommend for your dogs health to replace every 2-3 years depending on how often it is used. Dogs ingesting plastic is very bad, and it actually disintegrates the black part of the nose (which is why some dogs then get a pink nose).

Great for car travel
I have two dogs. This will be perfect for our car trips.
Everything will be together. No searching all over the van looking for their food.

Compact and useful...
I happened on this while in the store for a different item. This will get a lot of use, as I like to take my dog everywhere with me when I can. Nice & compact for our short trips.
