Essential Info

Some studies have shown that feeding your pet smaller meals over the course of the day can prevent pet obesity and lead to better health. Unfortunately, most working people can't get home to feed the dog at lunchtime, and many will forget to put out his breakfast in their rush to get out the door in the morning! Make sure your pet is fed regular amounts on a steady feeding schedule with the LeBistro 10-Pound Portion-Control Feeder, a programmable, automatic pet feeder that dispenses portions from 1/4 cup to 2 cups at up to three selected times per day. The LeBistro Portion-Control Feeder is powered by three D batteries (sold separately).

    at first I thought it was GREAT,but after only using it 5 days it got jammed. I re programed it a few times but only got a day before it stopped working again. I was gonna order another for my other dog but it has proved undependable won't leave my dogs to count on it
    ELVIRIA -- morrison, CO   2/22/2012
    Got feeder early in the mail, set up was sooper simple. So far we LOVE it! We bought two one for med - lg size dog and one for our cat... they have different feeding sizes and schedules. Both seem to be working great. Very pleased... would definately recommend to others. Beats being woken up at 5am by the cat to get fed.

    I am happy with the LeBistro Portion Control feeder. I no longer have to worry abouy my puppy because I know that he is being fed at the programmed times. I was happy with the price of the product, but I think that the shipping price was a bit steep. Overall, I am very happy and satisfied with this product. I would recommend it to others.
    JACQUES -- terrebonne, QC   4/30/2011
    Very good. I recommend this product
    JACQUES -- terrebonne, QC   4/14/2011
    Great product, thank you!
    Jack -- montreal, Canada   4/5/2011
    Great product. Some mention there cat can retreive more food with there claw from the hole. The one a receive have a door that block the hole, so the cat cant reach the food from the hole. Is it because they fix the potential problem by adding this door? Anyway, it work perfectly. Also very easy to program.

    Great piece of gear, but clock runs slow. Shipping was timely.
    ANNETTE -- yreka, CA   12/17/2010
    Good concept and it works well, only problem is it is easy for a dog to knock it over if he decides he wants more than the allowed portion.
    IRMA DE LA -- park ridge, IL   11/19/2010
    I love the product. Too bad I cannot use it outside to feed my feral cat colony.
    ROBERT -- st petersburg, FL   6/21/2010
    Love it. Keeps the cats fed while i'm away at work. Very easy to setup. Set it and forget it.
    sue -- hb, CA   11/15/2009
    We have had 2 of these and both times the electronics have failed. The second one isn't even a year old. It seems to be fine until you have to change the batteries and then it self-destructs. The demise of the first one was where the display no longer worked to allow you to program it. On the second one, we can't even set the time, the programming buttons do not respond. No replacement parts are available. Guess that what happens when you buy something made in China. Definitely won't threw my money away for a third time.

    This item works perfectly for my 55 lb chocolate lab. I can set up her food times and not have to worry about rushing home to feed her or waking up super early when she is hungry. I always keep my eye on it though and make sure the food is coming out. One time I filled up the container and the food didn't come out, I had to jiggle around with the dispenser part because it got stuck. But overall this has been a really helpful item. If your dog or cat is prone to knock things over, I would be sure to put it between something to keep it from falling. A determined and hungry pet could definitely push over the container if they felt like it.

    Though this product received many bad reviews, it also received enough good reviews to convince me to try it anyway. One of my cats is very overweight, and everything I've tried has failed to work, so I thought this might be helpful. I'm also away from home a lot, so I don't have to worry about putting down extra food for them when I'm gone. I've only had the feeder over two weeks, but so far I'm very pleased with it. It was easy to set up and program, and I can already tell a difference in my overweight cat thanks to the portion control. Of course it's not going to be accurate; I think it's a little foolish to believe it would be, but the difference isn't significant enough to make much of a difference. My fat cat has only recently figured out how to stick her paw up inside it, but the kibble I feed them is large (Science Diet), so she doesn't have an easy time getting any out of it. I was feeding them much smaller kibble (Iams), which did slip out at random sometimes, but since I switched none has come out when it's not scheduled to. All in all, I would recommend this product.
    OTIS E. -- alamo, GA   7/18/2009
    I have had a very good experience with the feeder so far. It was easy to set up and it took my sharpei only about a week to get use to it. I am very satisfied with it so far.
    Emily -- Chicago   5/19/2009
    I have had this product for almost a year. At first, I loved it but now one of my cats has figured out how to retrieve more food by sticking her paw up into the hole. I would no longer recomend this product for those customers with smart cats
    KRISTY -- houston, TX   3/9/2009
    I am very happy with this product. It has worked out well for us and our cats.
    DALE -- boulder, CO   6/8/2008
    My cat just reaches his paw up in the dispenser and is able to pull out food whenever he wants. Poorly designed product.
    BRADFORD -- davis, CA   5/29/2008
    Seems to do what I expect from it, feed my cat twice a day. The one odd thing we hear occasionally is it dribbling more food at unscheduled feeding times. Maybe the flat kibble we use is more prone to sneaking through the feed mechanism?
    BRENDA -- chamblee, GA   3/12/2008
    I love my automatic cat feeder. It makes it a lot easier to feed my cat on time and I don't have to be home. I have a cat that would eat all the time if I put food out for him all the time. This way I can control the amount of food he eats and keep his weight down.
    KATHY -- davenport, WA   3/4/2008
    The feeder was easy to re-set for programmed feeding. It has worked very well for limit-feeding my house cats vs the "old gravity-fed feeder".
