This is the lidded pet bowl that automatically opens only when the intended pet approaches, preventing access to other dogs or cats. The included microchip tag attaches to the pet's collar and transmits an infrared signal that opens the lid of the bowl when the pet is within 2'. The lid closes when pet walks away, preventing other pets from eating from the bowl. The clear polycarbonate lid creates a secure seal that extends food's freshness and allows owners to monitor how must sustenance is left. The microchip is inside a water-resistant, locket-sized plastic case that will not interfere with the pet's normal movements, multiple microchip tags can be used with the same feeder (more available below) or assigned to open only one bowl when multiple feeders are present. The removable stainless steel bowl holds up to up to 1 1/2 cups of food and is dishwasher-safe. A switch allows owners to open and close the lid manually. Powered by the included AC adapter or three D batteries, not included. 8" L x 7" W x 4 3/4" H. (2 1/4 lbs.)

A good idea
By Loves Cats
from Ontario, Canada
Great product if you have more than one pet, one that's a picky eater and one that eats everything because the picky eater can eat at their leisure. The problem is, the tag that activates the lid dangles in the the water dish when the pet drinks so the battery doesn't last very long and needs replacing often. I haven't figured out a way to keep the tag out of the drinking water so I keep lots of extra batteries.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Scared my cats
from St Louis, MO
Remember the jack in the box that kids crank the handle and it pops up? Well this is similar and my cats were scared. Even my brave one wouldn't go near it after a couple of times. I tried the suggestions to get them used to it and it didn't work and I didn't want to keep scaring them. Once I decided to return it, I disassembled the battery from the microchip and it was all wet inside from the cats drinking water. The microchip is also big and clunky, bigger than I expected.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Not great for cats...
The bowl was okay, except for the aforementioned cons. The tag was especially annoying. I have a cat, and the bulkiness of the tag would hinder her ability to eat out of the bowl. In addition, it would either catch on the sides of her water bowl, or she would have to lean far enough over the side that it dipped halfway in the water. All in all, not great for cats. Probably good for medium to large dogs.
Not sure yet if its worth the money
from Wilmington, IL
It is loud when it opens & closes & scares my cat. Also, the microchip collar attachment is bulky & too big for a cat, wish it would have been a little smaller. Okay for a dog though. Not sure yet if my cat will get used to the loud noise or bulky microchip collar attachment.
