The feeding dish will depend on the length of the puppy’s nose and the shape of his face. Flat-faced, short-nosed pups eat more easily from a shallow dish. Longer-nosed kinds kinds can reach into a deeper dish, while the long-eared youngsters may need a slant-sided dish to help keep ear-flaps and fringes from dipping into the dinner. However, when the puppy is just learning to eat, he may be started on a fairly flat dish; then after a week or two given the type of pan best for his ears and muzzle. Do not use enamelware which may chip. Stainless steel makes the best type of feeding dishes but oven-ware crockery or plastic are also serviceable.
