I figured the largest (5 quart 18") would be the right one but I just wanted to make sure. If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it. I am getting a Neapolitan this weekend and wanted the house to be perfect for her. Any suggestions are welcome too. I am new to this breed and want everything to be perfect. So food, toys, sleeping anything would be appreciated. I have done research but the opinion of experienced owners would be the best advice. Thank you!!

The cheaper way to go in my opinion is: The elevated flower planting pot stands you can get almost anywhere even the dollar store. They work great and then you only have to buy the large stainless steel bowls. It will be two separate dishes so you can take the water stand and bowl out side when needed. Hope it helps.

I am not sure what height they are though... we do have 2 quart bowls in them

It's 11" across. Pretty big.

I would use stainless steel. Plastic can be harmful.

Welcome!!! Can we see some pictures when you get her?

As far as food goes, Bill our food guru has a mega list of different kibbles to choose from. GOOD kibbles! And then there are quite a few of us on here who opt for a RAW diet. Chelsea, myself, Silverknight (who is also a MOD) we all feed raw Smile

Toys... pfffft... Apple pretty much keeps her toys for twenty minutes and then I have to toss them because she chews 'em. Jollyballs are a hit with mastiffs. Smile

Apple just sleeps on a super big chair cusion. I don't want to spend too much on a nice bed when I know as a puppy she will just chew it to shreds. Smile Futon matresses are also a big hit.

LOTS of information on this forum. VERY glad that you joined us!

When all else fails this works well as an elevated feeder

Someone told me that a recent study linked elevated feeding bowls to an increased incidence of bloat. I haven't seen it but the person that told me is very reliable. Maybe someone here can verify or deny?
