Petnet Feeder | An Automatic Way To Feed Your Dog

We all have such busy lives these days, that we don’t always have the ability to be at home for our dogs every need.  Most of us work full-time and don’t have the option to come home at lunchtime, or be there for supper time.

One of the great gadgets to help ensure that our pets get feed when they need to, is an automatic pet feeder.  Well I have found an amazing product that will help solve that problem.  The product is called Petnet Feeder.

How does it work

For many of us dog owners, we can tend to run a bit behind schedule at times and aren’t always where we are supposed to be when it’s time to feed our dogs.

However, if you own an automatic dog food feeder, you can feed your dog right from your smartphone. Once you purchase the Petnet product, you then fill the feeder storage container with your dog’s food.

It comes with a built-in rechargeable battery, the USB cable that is chew resistant just in case your dog feels like checking out the cable.  Included is also a North American AC adapter.  Also, you need to connect it to your Wi-Fi system. The backup battery is there just in case of a power outage.

All that’s left for you to do is, download the Petnet app to either your iPhone (iOS 9) or android device (OS 4.0).  After you have downloaded the app on to your device, you then set up your pet’s profile. In the profile they want to know the age, weight and activity of the pet that will be using the feeder.

You can even put a profile picture of your pet and the quantity of food that you want released at the required time.

Then by activating the app, you can set up an automatic time when you want the machine to dispense the dog food and just like that your dog is being fed.

You can also set up a regular feeding schedule within the app. Rather than have to activate the dispenser for every time, you can program the dates and times you want the food to be released at. By doing, it this way, you will never miss a feeding.

Having this set-up, will also ensure that your dog is on a regular routine with when they eat their meals.  Once your pet has been fed, you can also setup to get an alert after feeding time.

Storage Container

Inside the box is a bowl, feeder base, food container with lid an aluminum bowl insert a micro USB 8ft long and the quick start guide to get you going.

The feeder base is white, while the storage container is a clear black container that you can also see through.

This storage dog food container stays locked so that it keeps your dogs food fresh and secure.   By keeping your dog food in this container, it will ensure that your dog food stays free of bacteria and is safe.  The design of the container allows no air to enter the container which keeps the food even fresher.

The bowl is a simple design, but sophisticated.  It is completely dishwasher safe, and can be used for daily feedings. Inside the smart feeder is a very durable wheel that is used to control the portion size you require.

When the feeder storage container starts to get low, the food level sensor will notify you by sending you an alert to your phone.

Size and capacities

The storage container will hold 5-7lbs of dry dog food at one time. For the daily feedings the bowl size can hold up to 2.5 cups of food.  When it dispenses the food you can ask for any measurement between 1/16 – 1 1/2 cups, depending on how much you are feeding your dog.

The size of the kibble does need to be within the size of 1/8″ – 5/8″ to ensure it doesn’t get caught up in the dispenser slot on the machine.  Make sure that your dog food size is the correct size to fit in the dispenser.

With the size of this container it is not recommended for dogs over 60 lbs.

The entire package comes with a 1-year warranty and customer support for the entire life of your product.


You can activate the automatic feeder through the app, but it can also be used by using voice commands through Amazon’s Alexa, and Google Home speakers.

As an example, you could ask Alexa to feed your dog a specific amount of dog food. “Alexa feed Mittens 1/8 cup of dog food. Or ask your Google Home “Was Finn fed this am?” and it will respond.

You can also use it with a Nest Camera by using the same type of voice commands.  It will also notify you when the food is getting low and or actually view your pet eating through the camera.

Overall Review

We always have the best of intentions when it comes to having a routine or plan for feeding our dog at a specific time. Unfortunately we aren’t always as available as we would like.  Life always has a way of affecting our plans.

This can easily be solved, by owning your own Petnet Feeder.  There are many great features that this particular brand of feeders offer.


This automatic dog food feeder can eliminate any worries about not being there for your dogs feeding schedule.   No more rushing home just to feed the dog.

I have always found it very important to keep my dogs on a routine with their food schedule.  Keeping a regular schedule has benefits for your dog.  I believe that a dog that has a good routine, will also be a dog that is well-behaved.   It can help with discipline and having an overall well-mannered dog.

With all the great benefits of this automatic dog food feeder you really need to add this gadget to your collection for your dog. You will not be disappointed with this purchase.


I hope you have enjoyed my review of the Petnet Feeder for automatically feeding your dog. I would love to hear your thoughts and comments below.

  1. Ah, beautiful  one here. Petnet feeder doesn’t look like a bad idea at all. At least I’ll be relieved of the stress of feeding my hungry dog every now and then. Since the price is not too exorbitant, it’s quite pocket friendly and I’ll be able to just download an app and get my dog fed. That’s fabulous and I’m ecstatic to get going with the automatic way to feed my dog. Seems everything is going “smart this days.

    • Hi Henderson,

      Thank you for sharing your comments on my latest post.  I agree that this automatic feeder really does take the stress away when it comes to feeding your dog on time.  It is hard to always be there at the right tme everyday.

       This feeder is the answer for sure.  Dog gadgets that are on the market these days are really so amazing the ideas that they come up with.  It is nice to see technology being added to dog gadgets.

      Thank you.


  2. Thank you for your post. My wife and I always talk about to have automatic dog food feeder, since both of us have a full time job and long commute. Sometimes our fur friend stays at home alone for more than 12 hours.

    Now, you give us a complete review on the feeder. Besides dog, we also have a cat. I wonder if we could purchase one feeder and use it for both dog and cat in the same time.

    I see the price of the feeder is about $200, which is out of our budget. Do you have cheaper one, for example about $100?

    It is kind of you sharing this useful information with us.

    • Hi Anthony,

      I am glad that you enjoyed my review of the Petnet Automatic Feeder.  Listening to you talk about your dogs and how sometimes they are alone for a long period of time, seems like a feeder is exactly what you need.

      I have found a feeder that is cheaper that you could check out.  The real difference I have found is that you may lose the ability to operate it from your phone with an app.  Some of the other feeders are programmable on the machine.  You would set the time like a coffee maker and it would dispense the food at the right time.

      One is Feed’Em Automatic Feeder that has a lower price point that you can check out. I hope this helps.

      Thanks for sharing your comments and story.


  3. Hello Coralie, I must say that this article is very helpful and informative. Honestly, I never used an automatic pet feeder but now I think that it is a great idea. I often travel and my dog is going everywhere with me so this feeder would do a great job. Thank you for sharing, it is a little bit expensive but it is worth it.

    • Hi Daniel,

      I appreciate your comments on my post.  Yes it sounds like because you travel an automatic feeder may be just what you need.  The price is a little pricey, but the beauty is it’s a one time fee and it has no addition cost for the app.

      There are other feeders on the market that are automatic feeders, unfortunately most of them are ones that you program and aren’t controllable through an app.  

      Thank you for sharing.
