“I wanted to make something that would not only relate to the wine industry, but would respect nature and the wood that had been harvested.”

There’s no shortage of beautiful scenery in Napa Valley. But when longtime wine enthusiast Bob Yates moved to northern California, his eye honed in not on the lush valleys or panoramic vistas, but on the heaps of weathered wine barrels he spotted during winery visits. “There should be a way to transform these discarded barrels to get more use from the many trees that were destroyed to make them,” he thought.

And so he created one, channeling a 30-year woodworking hobby to turn end-of-life wine barrels into a line of home goods. “I wanted to make something that would respect nature and the wood that had been harvested,” he says. To this end, his designs–which range from barrel tables to flight staves–are both decorative and functional. “I want people to use and enjoy them,” he says, “not just look at them.”

Comments about UncommonGoods Wine Barrel Dog Feeder:

Aesthetics: We love this bowl holder, and so does our beagle. When his tenth birthday rolled around and he was firmly in the "senior dog" age bracket for a medium-sized dog, I began to look for ways to make his life easier and more comfortable. Our vet recommended raising his food and water bowls, but many of the options in pet supply stores were utilitarian-looking and downright unattractive. This feeder, by contrast, is an accent instead of an eyesore. Anytime we have guests over, someone comments on how cool and functional it is. We've had several people ask where we purchased it.

Care Tips: The bowls are stainless steel, so they're easy to keep clean in the dishwasher or by hand. They're a standard size that's readily available at pet supply stores, too, so you can easily replace them if needed. The wine barrel base is a beautiful, rich wood tone (a bit darker than it appears in the photo), so to keep it looking good and protect it from inevitable water splashes and drool, I apply a light coating of food-grade butcher block treatment (beeswax + mineral oil blend) every six weeks or so. We've had it for a year and it still looks brand new. I would caution against using furniture polish as the ingredients may be harmful to your dog.

Size: The feeder is the perfect size for our breed-standard beagle (he's 15" at the shoulder and weighs about 30 lbs), so it might be a bit tall for smaller breeds. Larger breeds could use it, but the bowls may be on the small side for their needs. Our guy drains the water bowl at least once per day, so a large breed or multiple pups sharing would accelerate that.

Other considerations: If your floors scratch easily, you may want to apply some rubber or felt pads to the base of the feeder, which is a raw wood edge. Because the bowls are removable, they tend to clang against the edges of the hole in the feeder top when the dog is eating, especially if your dog is a zealous bowl-licker like our beagle. Not a major issue for me.

    Beautiful, well-made dog feeder

    By 

    from Portland, OR

    Comments about UncommonGoods Wine Barrel Dog Feeder:

    This is a nicely made, beautiful dog feeder. It's visually appealing to look at versus the old, typical dog water bowl we used to have. The only complaint I have is that water leaks under the edges of the bowl and gets onto the floor under the barrel in addition to around the edges of the barrel because our dogs are sloppy drinkers. Especially since the barrel is sitting on hardwood floors I'm constantly mopping up the water. I will be seeing if I can find two bowls that are deeper (taller) so water doesn't splash out as they are drinking. I think the bowls it comes with would be fine for smaller dogs or neat drinkers.
