Raised feeders provide ease of access to food and water which can help facilitate movement of food when traveling from the mouth to the stomach. Consuming food from elevated dog bowls also place less strain on the dog's neck, hips, shoulders and joints—promoting better posture. This is a major importance for dogs of advanced age and those with arthritis. Like many, our hounds are integral members of the family unit, so we made the Napfständer to promote healthy, slop free dining—without sacrificing function, quality or aesthetic.

Appenzeller Hound
These working-class canines have been regulating the Swiss Alps since 1906. From cattle to sheep
 and goats to pigs—they know how to herd a farm (and household) into order.
Their affinity to herd and guard with such devotion shows that they would give their life to protect their charge. Now, as households modernize, the hound’s loyalty is reciprocated with a rise in household spoiling.
Heritage
Appenzell
Appenzell is a historic canton in the northeast of Switzerland. It became independent from the Abbey of Saint Gall in 1403 and entered a league with the Old Swiss Confederacy in 1411, becoming a full member in 1513.

Man with Appenzeller Sennenhund;
 Egon Müller, 1920
The character of the Appenzeller is the product of hundreds of years of use in the mountains. He is a very high-spirited, tenacious dog with amazing determination and stamina.
The emergence of cattle herding in the 15th and 16th century put the “Appenzeller Sennenhund” on the map. In order to gain grazing pastures
 for farm animals, highland forests were felled and in summer, land above the forest lines were grazed. In order to keep the herds together, it was essential to have watch and herding dogs that were fast, fit, and alert—the Appenzeller hound fit the bill. They were, until recently, solely valued as utilitarian animals.
