I don't understand this question?


It stays in its spot on the floor where I will re-fill it in the morning. It's just a stainless steel bowl

This, or if they look gross. Blackinois bowl gets nasty because he eats in his crate and sits with it for a while usually so it gets hair in it and he doesn't lick it clean completely so it gets a grime, my dogs are way better at cleaning.

I don't really do anything with them. They just sit on the floor/in the kennel unless they are in my way, then they sit on a different place on the floor closer to the wall.

This! The cat food dish stays on her placemat with her water bowl but it's out of the way.

The dogs get fed in three corners of the kitchen. Leaving the bowls there would be very much in the way. I don't want to put them in the cupboard or on the counter dirty. So much easier to just wash them right away and leave them nice and clean on the counter until the next feeding.

I have wire racks that hold stainless steel food and water bowls. They stay in the wire rack until the next feeding. One is in Logan's crate, the other is in a designated spot in my room (for Gavroche), out of the way. Both are on plastic, heavy duty placemats.

Yeah, I pretty much wash them if they are in reaching distance when loading the dishwasher and there is room. So that could be every day or every month or whenever.

It's not something I really worry about, but I think overall they get washed at least once every couple weeks.

Oh, and I feed raw.

If I feed in their crates (they hang on the sides) I just leave them there. If they get fed in the kitchen I typically just leave them on the floor till they get kicked around enough to get annoying. I think that's when they tend to get washed.

If you saw Merlin eat you would understand why it doesn't need to be washed that frequently lol or ever.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only person that doesn't wash them, I've wondered if I was horrible for that. My dogs leave no residue in their dishes. I feed in their crates, so I just leave them there until it's time for their next feeding.

The water dish, I usually rinse out before refilling, and if it's looking icky (which does happen), I clean it out with dish soap and a scrubby sponge. It doesn't really fit in the dishwasher. They also have water dishes in their kennels for when I'm at work. They tend not to drink out of them very much, but I do get them out and clean them sometimes, they get slimy otherwise.

Every couple weeks/months/whenever things get dirty. Kibble/canned. Water bowl gets rinsed every refill. As for what I do with them in between, I prefer to leave it in it's spot in the kitchen so that I have something to trip over every day.

Well, like me, Rosey would graze through the day, so it stayed in her rack thing.
