I absolutely love this product, it has been a life saver for us. We had a problem with my Boykin Spaniel always eating my Frenchie's dog food. This product was the perfect solution! We have been using it for a year now and don't know what we would do without it.
The only problem we have encountered is that the tag, which is worn on my frenchies collar has started to come apart...the screws that hold the collar together have become stripped after changing the battery several times. I have a call in now to Pet Smart to see if I can buy the collar replacement or if I'll have to buy the entire bowl again. Other than that its a great product!
It did take a day for my frenchie to get use to the automatic opening of the bowl, she barked at it, at first. We don't have trouble with it closing on her head as the other review states, unless someone puts my dogs collar on backwards where the red tag is not facing outward or the battery is low...which we always know because a red light flashes.
I would recommend this product to others and would buy it again myself. I have not seen anything to compare!

Just purchased and have a problem with the lid staying open. the lid opens as my cats walks up to it, but then closes as she is eating. I really wanted this to work so the dogs would stop eating the cat food.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Christislord Closes on pet's head while eating. Bummer!
Of my two cats, one can't have dry food. The one who can, this was a perfect solution. There's a sensor kind of like a tag, that you attach to the pet's collar. Then when they approach the dish, it opens. Problem is, when she starts to eat, the lid closes on her head. Apparently they need to make some improvements on the design so the sensor can read the tag while the pet is eating. Great idea! Just needs working on so it functions as intended.
