I'd love to be able to use something like this so I didn't have to go home every day to feed my dog his lunch, but he eats from a slow feeder bowl and I moisten his food. Plus I would be worried about him getting hungry and chewing open the big bin. But for people with smaller dogs this is a great deal.
