I got this a couple weeks back for my dogs. Both are around 50-60lbs. The great bowl works awesome for them. So easy to clean and it doesn't slip across my floors.
This bowl definitely helps keep the mess under control with sloppy water drinkers! My cats use it more than my dogs and that probably has to do with the size. The silicone is durable and easy to clean, and it really makes the bowl feel like it's securely held.

I really like how heavy the silicon is, and the mat stays put which I really appreciate. Does a good job catching the water as my dog lifts his head, and it stay clean. If I were to make improvements, I would offer it with two bowls, so I can lift one out and put in the other without having to wash, dry and replace. I would also like a larger (longer) mat for my big dogs, so it would catch more watery drool as they walk away or move their heads.

I got this great bowl for my golden retriever puppies. They love to slide their original bowl across the whole hardwood floors when they eat, well, no more! We love that the silicone mat helps the bowl stay still therefore no more sliding. It also helps hold up any water spills should you decide to use it for a water bowl. The bowl itself is definitely big enough for my pup's kibble portion (and MORE), and for water as well. The bowl is liftable from its silicone stand, and both parts can be washed.
My dog is always very happy to see us when we get home from work and he just has to bring us a gift. 99% of the time, the first thing he sees is his food bowl. Immediately, he grabs it, dumps the food on the floor and runs to greet us!! Week, no more. He can slide it, but he can't pick it up. I am one happy dog Mom. Everyday it was the same ole thing. Come in, love on Max, and get the broom to clean up the mess. This bowl has made me very happy.

I haven't had them long, but they seem good. They are still able to slide, but not be pulled up. I think the suction will be strong enough that the cats won't be able to bump it (fingers crossed). The bowls are quite shallow, but it should be enough for my cats or a food bowl for a dog. I'm not sure it'd be enough water capacity for a large dog. The main benefit I've already noticed for me is that since the bowl "attaches" to the mat, water and food cannot get underneath it. This prevents ickiness I have seen with my previous bowls on mat solution. I got this specifically because my two cats have made a mess when playing and knocking their water bowl. I hope this will solve my issues.
This is the perfect solution for the place mat, ever roaming food dish. No only does it suction in place, but its the perfect size. The mat protects from those not so clean moments too.

This is a perfect bowl for any dog that likes to move their bowl around the house. My Golden Retriever puppy constantly moved her bowl and left a trail of food along with it. Since we got this I no longer step on stray kibble or trip over her bowl in random places!
