If you are looking to buy an automatic food dispenser, here are some tips.

Automatic food dispensers come in two basic forms. One features a large bin, or hopper, which is filled with dry food. The hopper feeds down a chute into a bowl. As the food level in the bowl drops, more food falls down from the hopper.

A more advanced form of automatic food dispenser features a battery operated timer that operates on a specifically timed scheduled, dispensing a pre-set amount of food into a bowl, or, revolving to reveal a pre-set amount of food in a dish on a schedule that you program. This kind of automatic food dispenser uses a battery, typically nine-volt, and will be the more expensive of these options.

If your dog is a "free-feeder," the "hopper" type automatic food dispenser may be your best choice. For dogs that'll eat anything you put in front of them, and in any amount, the "timed" automatic food dispenser is probably a better option.
