Our dog Sophie, a beautiful Siberian Husky, has been a very picky eater from the time we brought her home as a puppy. Now, at nine years old, her eating preferences have not changed and we have tried every suggestion to convince her to eat dry dog food. Mix ins like baby food, shredded chicken and shredded cheese are her favorite but instead of adding our own people food, we would much rather prefer she was eating her own food. She’s been loving her new CESAR® Dry Filet Mignon with spring vegetables and CESAR® Pate Mixed Variety Pack from Walmart. We’ve been mixing the two together at dinnertime and our very vocal Sophie hasn’t complained. CESAR® lets you feed your dog like family, but keep them healthy at the same time. The DIY Stained Glass Dog Food Bowl is a fun way to serve Sophie’s new favorite meal.

New CESAR® dry with Meat-First Recipes reinforces that mealtime is just as important for your dog as for you. Sophie is a big fan of the filet mignon flavor!

Dog serving tip: instead of using a plastic mat, place dog food and water bowls on a memory foam bath mat. It is machine washable and absorbs all the water our silly dog spills.

  1. We don’t have a dog, but I am going to have our 3 year old help make this for our cats. Your other tip about the foam mat would probably work for the cats as well. Thanks for a simple, creative idea.

  2. Love the DIY of the dog bowl! I will definitely be sharing this with my friend who’s obsessed with her dog’s and I know she will love doing this activity for them!

  3. We don’t have a dog yet, but marrying my husband kind of came with the promise that we’d get a dog someday. When we get one I’ll have to make this stain glass bowl. I love it!

  4. That is such a cute idea! We have so many of those bowls between my cats and dogs, but I never thought of making them look prettier. Yours are so much nicer now!

  5. This turned out super cute! Love the geometric pattern. I’m not sure that would last around my house. I’m constantly washing the bowls lol Maybe I can put a non toxic clear coat on them…hmmmmmm So cute!

  6. Hi. The Sharpie permanent markers aren’t “food safe”. There are “food safe” markers that work on metal like the Pebeo Porcelaine 150 pens. My pup is messy and licks the entire bowl. My rule of thumb is, if you wouldn’t let your human baby put it in their mouth, then it’s not good enough for my pup baby.

  7. So I have a very smart mouse in my house. I have an autorefill dog bowl system. This mouse can shimmy up the side of the bowl, stand on the edge and eat out of the dog bowl. Any suggestions? Thanks.
