Great options for doggy dinnerware

Dogs are beloved members of our families. As dog owners, we're concerned about the nutritional content of our dog's food and we're paying more attention to what and how we feed our cherished pets. We're concerned that the bowls we use are free of harmful chemicals and appropriate for our dogs, in size, depth and material.

While it may not be the first consideration - it's also important that we like the look of our dog's bowls. We see and touch those bowls every day, several times a day, for many happy years with our dogs.

Here at our shop, Golly Gear, we specialize in products for small dogs. And our dog-loving staff is happy to help you find exactly the right gear for your cherished pet.

Spoil your dog with home-made frozen treats!

Silicone Treat Trays are freezer, dishwasher, and oven safe! Easy recipes, infinitely variable, are included. Just stir, fill, and freeze and your dog will have healthy, home-made treats any time! Perfect for dogs with food sensitivities and dog owners who want to take the best care of their dogs!

These trays can also be used to prepare baked treats - although the recipes will be different. We love having complete control over what goes into our dogs' treats. And we love how the "cookies" just pop right out of the silicone trays.

Pastel stainless - safe and stylish

Dishwasher-safe stainless steel is an optimal choice for dog dishes. These Pastel Stainless Steel Bowls are a great mix of form and function. They feature cheery colors, non-skid design, non-tip design and are small enough so even the tiniest dogs will be able to enjoy their meals. Only six inches in diameter at the base and less than 1 1/ 2 inches high. Stainless steel is especially recommended for dogs who have sensitive, or break-out prone skin.

Berry Bowls

In warm, rich colors, these ceramic Berry Bowls in the Bauer 2000 line by the Bauer Pottery Company are perfect for feeding our little dogs. The Berry Bowl measures only 5 inches in diameter, and one inch deep. Height outside is 1 1/4 inches. The manufacturer says that the pottery can be washed in the dishwasher. Made in California.

Oval Double Feeder

Does your little dog get two different kinds of food? Or, do you want your small dog's food and water bowls together but contained? Or does your pup need his food and water bowl raised for easier access? Then the Oval Double Feeder is perfect!

The oval base is made of iron (choose white or black) and has fitted enclosures for the 1/2 pint round stainless steel bowls (included). When in the base, the top of the bowl is three inches from the bottom. Each bowl is 4 1/2 inches in diameter and 1 1/2 inches deep. The base is 9 3/4 inches long and 5 inches wide. The bowls lift out easily for filling and washing.

Mason Cash Bowls

Mason Cash Bowls are strong, safe and durable for our small dogs. These great bowls are heavyweight to prevent your little dog from picking them up! Mason Cash was established in 1800 and is a much-loved brand in England for domestic cookware. In fact, a Mason Cash bowl is still used in England's Royal Household kitchen to mix the Christmas pudding.

Square Pawprint Bowls

Adorable, durable stoneware from Ethical Products, these Square Pawprint Bowls will brighten any décor. Each bowl is natural color trimmed in orange with colorful hand-painted pawprints on each side - inside and out! Plus there's a raised pawprint impression on the bottom of the bowl.

Diamond Pattern Ceramic Bowls

Add some color and happiness to your décor with these stoneware Diamond Pattern Andover Bowls by Pet Studio. With an all-over colorful diamond pattern interspersed with black pawprints on white, these bowls will make everyone happy at mealtime. The bottom of the bowl says, "food + dog = happy." Truer words were never spoken.
