Travel DIY Pet Dishes for Your Dog

I have spring fever and with spring fever comes travel and my D.I.Y. craft side. It’s the time of year I do all of my DIY projects that I’ve put off during the cold winter months. I make everything from travel doggie pillows to cute travel dog food bowls. We travel a lot on the weekends and we have Paws on the Falls, National Trails Day, coming up and there will be a lot of dogs attending. I decided to make Peanut personalized dog food bowls to take so his bowls won’t get mixed up with someone else’s fur baby bowls. I’ve had so much fun making the bowls that I’ve decided I’m going to make some for my home as well. If you’d like to make your own dog or dogs, a set of personalized dog food bowls, just follow my below tutorial.

I bought bowls with a lip but it’s up to you if you like a lip or not. I prefer a lip so I can put Peanut’s bowls in a stand. Target has several different pet bowls to choose from and I’m sure you’ll find the set that’s right for your dog.

After you’ve cleaned your bowls add a circle chalkboard sticker on each of the bowls.

Next, add dots with your paint pen, all the way around the circle. Don’t use a chalkboard marker, you’ll want a permanent paint pen so you can wash your food bowls.

While they’re drying, cut out dog paws with the remaining circles. Like so… I didn’t have a pattern, I just went with it. They turned out kinda cute, don’t you think? Add them to the opposite side of the bowl from the circles.

Add dots all the way around and let dry. Play with your fur baby while you wait.

I decided to personalize mine with an F for food and a W for water. With the dog paws on the back, I can pick out Peanuts new travel pet food bowls out of a crowd, no matter how many dogs show up for Paws on the Falls.

Please come back and share a photo of your travel dog food bowls if you decide to make a set for your fur baby.

When it comes to the dog food I’ll use in my cute new dog food bowls, you can bet it’ll be Purina Dog Chow® Small Dog. There are several reasons I buy this food for my little Peanut. The first one is because Purina Dog Chow has 90 years of proven nutrition. They have perfected this brand and my dog loves meal time with Purina. Peanut is getting high-quality food, in each and every bite with this highly digestible formula. Plus there’s 21 g of protein per cup to help keep his muscles strong. It’s important that I buy dog food that Peanut will eat. He’s a picky eater so when I realized that he loves this brand, I decided to stick with it and 2 years later, I’m still buying it and he’s still eating it.

Right now you can get a great deal on Purina dry dog food through Target’s Cartwheel app. CartwheelTarget: 20% off Dog Chow (all sizes) – 3/5 – 3/11, 20% off Beyond Dry (all sizes) – 3/12 – 3/18, and 20% off ONE dry (all sizes) – 3/19 – 3/25.

  1. Such cute bowls… I immediately thought of all my friends with pets and what a great gift item this would be. I’m not much for DIY but I WOULD do this!

  2. I love the little dog bowls that you made. They look adorable and that’s cool you would recognize them instantly s I just know my dog has a weak stomach and seems to do best with organic food. Purine didn’t really work for him.

  3. I don’t take ” Baby ” , my Longhorn traveling much… Well, not at all. But Terri these are too cute to not make. These would make Awesome gifts for friends. Thank you so much for sharing this .

  4. That’s a lovely idea for pet bowls! I don’t have a dog but I have a cat who could use these as well. I love the idea, thanks!
