    Serving food and water to your dog in two separate feeders can be tedious. The Baron Heavy Duty Dog Feederprovides a practical solution to this with its two-bowl feeder. You can serve both food and water on a single feeding station. Besides the ease of serving, the raised level of the feeder allows your dog to eat at his or her own level. This promotes proper posture during meals, aids digestion, and helps your dog eat in comfort.
