Essential Info

Auto Pet Bowl is an electronic bowl that keeps your pet's food or water clean until your pet is ready to eat. The bowl cover is activated by an infrared proximity sensor and a battery-operated electric motor. The sensor detects the presence of the pet and then opens the cover so that the pet may have access to the food. When the pet leaves the sensor range, the bowl cover closes automatically. This keeps dust, flies and bugs from getting to the food and keeps the food or water fresh.

The unit operates on four AA batteries, sold separately.


What's Included

  • Auto bowl
  • Removable inner bowl
  • More Info

    Auto Open & Close
    The Auto Open Pet Bowl's cover opens to allow access to food or water whenever the infrared sensor detects motion in front of the bowl. The cover closes when no further motion is detected, thus keeping food or water fresh. The unit keeps dust and bugs out of the fresh food or water and contains the odor of food.

    The Auto Pet Bowl may be used for small dogs, cats and all other small pets, as it responds to any motion and can be used to free-feed or provide consistently fresh water on demand. The stainless steel inner bowl is removable for easy cleaning with dish soap and warm water or in the top rack of the dishwasher. (Do not ever put outer bowl in dishwasher or submerse in water.)

    Spoilt cat -- Australia   8/20/2013
    i love this product. It keeps cockroaches out of the cat food at night. You need to adjust sensitivity though. Mine lasted two years and died. but I'm buying another. Excellent product.

    Initially, brilliant. Kept the birds out of our dog's food and gave her a good challenge. But less than 6 months after getting it, the lid won't go up and it just makes a clicking sound. Very disappointing. Back to the birds I guess.

    bowl does not keep bugs out,there is not an air tight seal.each morning I have to get the ants out or clean all of the cat food out the night before
    KATHY -- napa, CA   5/20/2012
    This is a great idea and would keep birds out of our cat food but it has one big problem. The lid rises so quickly that it scared are cats and the would never go near it after their first encounter.

    sewingsandi -- cromer england   11/6/2009
    Great idea, but it keeps shutting on the poor cats head!!!! How do you stop that??
    ROBERT -- biloxi, MS   9/10/2009
    That's what I get for not reading the fine print. I was disappointed in the size of this product. It's more for small dogs or cats. I bought it for a boxer
    JAMIE -- lima, OH   7/23/2009
    I put batteries in the first unit. It opened once and refused to close until I shut it off. After that, it did nothing. Called customer service and it was replaced. The second unit would not open for my cat on ‘normal’ setting so I set it to the more sensitive setting. It would open & close sporadically, when nothing was near to set it off. It also closed on my cat while he was trying to eat. Traumatized cat went off his food & had to go to vet. Gave up & went back to a plain bowl & throwing out food when it dried out.

    Product works great. Cats are having a difficult time getting adjusted to it. Wonder if they ever will !
    DARYL -- phoenix, AZ   5/21/2009
    Who knew one little bowl could be so helpful?! I have to feed my cat in the backyard. This product was the only solution I could find to keep the birds and ants away from the patio and food. And it works! It's easy to use. It only took a few days for my cat to accept it. I opened the lid for him, until he stopping being startled by it. The only disadvantage is that the lid stays open if too close to walls.

    Hi I purchased this product and like it very much. It helps me to protect my Winky''s food from flies and ants. He too enjoys running to the bowl to see it open and display the colourful food. The movement of the lid brings joy to him. It is compact in size and to my budget.
