Pretty Nifty If You Have Pets That Like To Share Food

If you have problems keeping one out of the others' food, this stops them.

I just think it's nifty. I don't really think it's feasible unless someone has dogs only b/c it's not okay to leave canned food down forever. They're showing kibble in the video from what I can see.

I saw those!
I think if a person had to leave food out because the person is at work or whatever, it could be a good idea.  I have to wonder if the average cat or dog would be willing to stick their head though the do-hickey though.

Not sure how to train cats, but it would probably take some high-value treats to get most SMALL dogs to do it. And here's the thing, it's not going to feed big dogs. I don't think Vlad's head would fit in there even if he wanted it. I'm not even sure that it will feed dogs the size of Barkly.

Their previous versions are fully open, but they are motion-detection operated, and will open for anything that gets near it. I really think this is only going to help cats or maybe ferrets.
