Is 22 inches too high for a 70lb male? Most books say 12-16 inches but we were trying to reuse a shelf with underneath storage for our first ever Greyhound. Appreciate I ate any help on this.

 

Thanks,

M&W

Thank you all - decided on a nice sturdy tote with recessed top to hold the food bowl and the waterer. About 15" tall and tonight ran a first test with our new grey and worked great!!

Bear in mind that hounds at the track and in training generally eat out of a bucket or bowl on the floor.

 

There is no actually NEED for elevated feeders, so whatever your dog likes is fine.

:lol Felix. We use flower pots from Home Depot that hold our stainless steel feed bowls quite nicely.

My impression was that elevated feeders help prevent boat. That said, my dog's front legs shake whenever he tries to eat something off the floor.
