    My neighbour just asked me if i washed my dogs bowl. I said yeah every evening and she said 'oh'

    So i asked her if she washes hers and she said never

    I was a bit shocked

    I said to her you eat off a clean plate so why should dogs eat from a dirty bowl all the time

    Do you clean yours and if so how often??

    We clean Bailey's bowls after each meal, he has two food bowls, so we just alternate whenever one is clean.

    I rinse Otto's food bowl out after every meal and wash it properly every evening. His water bowl is rinsed out after pretty much every drink because he uses it to wash the mud out of his mouth!

    You should inviter your neighbour over for a meal and feed her on a dirty plate.:D

    And yes, we wash the food bowl after his meal and the water bowl is washed once we go to bed.
