I started thinking about how he could drink without getting his ears wet. I went home and started brainstorming a way to keep his ears dry. I went to my neighbors house and talked with them about the idea. As I was sitting at their kitchen table, I noticed a plastic bowl sitting there, and I turned it upside down. I asked for a knife and asked if I could cut up the bowl (which I’m sure was a strange request), but they agreed. I put the bowl upside down and then cut the bottom out. A few other common kitchen staples and a few cuts here and there, and I had our first prototype of a bowl just for long-eared dogs!

We are a typical animal loving family. We have dogs, cats, horses, and any other little creature that may cross our paths. I have worked in a couple veterinary clinics, and I now have a dog grooming business. So, being around dogs is an everyday thing for me. If anyone would have told me a few years ago that I would be designing a new dog bowl for long-eared dogs, I would have been quite skeptical. But, here we are with a successful product and a great story to tell.Basset Hounds, Cocker Spaniels, Afghans, Poodles and other long-eared dogs have a unique problem. These dogs have difficulty with their ears falling into their food while they eat. Food bowls that are deeper and have a narrower opening allow the ears to hang outside of the bowl instead of resting in the food.I went home, discussed my design and my first customer with my spouse and went to bed wondering if this could actually become a real product. I knew it could help long-eared dogs and their families, but was I the one to make this bowl happen? As I contemplated such a thought, I realized that something was nudging me to pursue this idea further. I prayed about it, and God led me every step of the way in pursuing it. He answered prayer in ways I never thought possible. So here it is, my labor of love, a bowl specifically for long-eared dogs, proudly made in the USA. We are so grateful to all of our customers across the country who have purchased our bowl and shared their stories with us.Say goodbye to messy after dinner dog ears with this handmade pottery spaniel bowl!
