    Wink Long earred dog bowls

    Mac is a full grown Cocker (28 pounds) what I'm wondering, is there anyone out there that has a long earred dog that has found a bowl that lets their ears rest outside of the bowl. With his water and food his ears get wet and dirty. It's a chore keeping his ears dry to avoid infections. I thought if anyone has found a solution you could let me know where you found it.

    How about a Single Raised dog bowl? They come in different designs, are made of metal or wood, and all sizes and that would let his ears lay on each side of it?

    Have you considered getting him a Snood? A lot of people keep their flop-eared dogs in them around the house so that their ears don't get everywhere.

    There are bowls specifically designed for long-eared dogs.
    If the link works, here's one:

    For water, the "Buddy Bowl" should work well.

    It's actually a travel bowl, but it helps keep long ears and long beards out of the drinking water. We have several of the larger size for our large, bearded guy. I'd prefer stainless steel to plastic, but that aside, it's an excellent product.

    Hope that helps.

    This is what I was going to suggest too. I have a friend with three Cavaliers and she puts snoods on them at mealtime to keep their ears clean.
