Feeders are the easiest way to keep your pet on a regular feeding schedule. They can be especially beneficial for pets with medical problems that require a planned diet. Feeders are also ideal for animals that require strict portion control. The Arf Pets automatic feeder is one of the newest options on the market.
Before choosing the right feeder for your pet, there are a few things to consider. There are many different sizes of automatic feeders to start with. Think about your pet’s size and how much food they eat per serving. This is important when choosing a feeder that will suit your needs.
Another variable that will influence your choices is the number of meals your cat or dog eats each day. Each feeder model is different – some only serve 2 or 3 meals a day while others can feed 10 or more meals a day. Likewise, some may serve 2-3 cups of food per serving while others may only serve 1 cup or less.
Most automatic feeders only dispense dry food. If your dog needs wet food or eats raw or homemade food, you have a very limited number of automatic feeders to choose from. One of those options is the Arf Pets automatic feeder!
Arf Pets Pet Feeder Review
This automatic feeder serves five 1-cup meals per cycle. I wouldn’t recommend it for large breed dogs, but it would be great for small or medium breeds. This would also be a great cat food dispenser.
I’m also delighted that this automatic feeder can serve wet or dry food. Most similar products only serve dry food, so this is a great option if your pet is eating canned or homemade dog food.
As you can see in my video review above, there is an option to record your own personal voice message for your pup that will play every time a meal is served. It gets your pet’s attention so they know when it’s time to eat.
The easy-to-use control panel allows you to set the times at which meals will be served at any interval of your choice. I’m certainly not tech-savvy, but the guide that came with it was great. I had this feeder set up in about 15 minutes.
The Arf Pets automatic feeder works with the included adapter or with 3 size D batteries. Battery backup is a must for me because you don’t have to worry about your dog missing a meal or being fed at the wrong time when the power is on fails.
The bottom of the feeder has rubber feet. This prevents it from sliding across the floor while it is eating. You can purchase the Arf Pets Automatic Feeder on Amazon for $ 39.99 at the time of this review.
Compared to other similar feeders with roughly the same capacity, this automatic feeder is priced at the lower end of the spectrum. If you have a cat or a small to a medium-sized dog I think this feeder is great value for money.
