Sourcing Pet Feeding Bowls: Step-by-Step


Kanary Confirms Specific Product Needs

We sit down with customers to make a strategy and confirm needs before we start looking for suppliers. Our experts make sure that we have your preferred specifications, and we may suggest other options or companion products. Kanary also ensures we understand your branding and graphic design needs, as well as any other needs you may have.


Pet Feeding Bowl Supplier Search

From there, Kanary begins an extensive search for suppliers. Our team starts with a list of 30-50 supplier options and narrows down those choices based on a number of different criteria. Kanary considers lead times, overall pricing, engineering capabilities, and general quality to help you find a supplier that's an excellent match.


Sampling and Supplier Vetting

When Kanary has narrowed down the supplier options to about 3-5 choices, our experts take a closer look at each option. We schedule sample deliveries, and our team consults with clients to examine samples and determine quality. Our team also inspects factories in-person, and we meet with factory managers and/or owners to see if the factory will be a good fit.


Final Supplier Choice and Mass Production

After our inspections, Kanary consults with clients to help make a final choice of the factory. Once a choice is made, our team manages mass production, making sure that quality control protocols are followed and that production problems are quickly addressed if and when they arise. This helps to ensure that products are safe for pets while also meeting your expectations of quality.


Sea Freight Shipping and Clearing Customs

When production is complete, Kanary continues to take the helm in getting your products to you. We book containers and schedule sea freight shipping, and we monitor shipments as they are delivered to customs. Our team can help navigate customs delays as they arise, but we help to gather all required paperwork to avoid any unnecessary delays.


Final Delivery

After your order clears customs, our team coordinates with domestic freight partners to get your products delivered to their final destination. For ecommerce stores, we can help make sure products get delivered to fulfillment partners successfully to where they are ready for order fulfillment.

Words from our clients

I’ve been in this industry for a long time and I was surprised that Kanary was able to help find us machines for a 1/3 of the cost compared with US and European manufacturers. What I really enjoy with Kanary is that they constantly keep me in the loop and get back to me almost instantaneously. What’s also great is that they kept me in the loop with the shipping, customs clearance, delivery, and also arrange travels for engineers from the factory to install our equipment.  The quality has been outstanding and I’m in the process of building out a new facility with them.

I’ve been in the construction industry for over 30 years. We’ve always bought from US distributors. I reached out to Kanary out of curiosity to see if we could find similar construction materials of high quality. I did not think they were going to make much progress and so I was shocked when they found the exact manufacturer that my distributors have been buying from within 2 weeks. They were able to make contact and have the factory send me samples within a week.  By connecting directly with the factory, we’re looking at savings of over 30%.

We’ve done quite a few different packaging projects with Kanary in the past (Child-resistant packaging, glass jars, plastic bags, shipper boxes, etc.). We sent AI files to Kanary, who then worked directly with the factory's design team to make prototypes of the packaging. Our in-house designer is very particular about our designs and Kanary was really flexible and worked with us when our designers wanted to make changes in the packaging development process. They were able to manufacture different prototypes at different price points, which gave us options when making our final decision.

Pet Feeding Bowls FAQs

What is the best automatic pet feeder to sell?

Knowing which design of automatic cat feeder is the best could help you decide what kind of product to source, but there isn't really an objective, clear way to determine this. It's often the case that the quality of a product like a cat feeder is less about the design and more about the quality of the manufacturer. 

There's a few things you can do to try and land on a design that may be a winning choice:

  • Market research: Take some time to determine what style of feeders are popular, common complaints about popular feeders, and how you can enter the market in the most successful way. 
  • Quality supplier: Your product is only as good as the factory making it. Take time to properly search, vet, and communicate with potential suppliers before committing to mass production. If you aren't confident in your ability to find a quality supplier, consider partnering with a sourcing specialist, like Kanary. 
  • Consider a prototype: After your market and supplier research, you may find that there's a vacuum in the market for a novel design. If so, consider looking for a supplier with the engineering capability to make a prototype and offer customers something that isn't yet available.

Why are dog bowls stainless steel?

Stainless steel dog bowls are a popular choice among customers because the bowls offer a lot of advantages at an excellent price point. Stainless steel bowls are:

  • Durable
  • Hygienic (they are nonporous, so they won't grow fungus or bacteria)
  • Easy to clean (stainless steel bowls can easily be washed with soap and water or even in the dishwasher)
  • Cost-effective (they are generally within a price point that is appealing to customers). 

As a business selling stainless steel dog bowls, the product offers a lot of advantages to you as well. Stainless steel bowls are:

  • Lightweight (which reduces your shipping costs)
  • High margins (stainless steel bowls are inexpensive to produce, providing potentially high profits if marketed correctly)
  • Durable (very unlikely products would be damaged during fulfillment).

Should I sell ceramic dog bowls or stainless steel dog bowls?

Stainless steel and ceramic dog bowls have unique pros and cons, so ideally, your business would sell both products. Here are some points to consider with each of these products. 

Stainless steel bowls are:

  • Lightweight
  • Durable
  • Inexpensive 

Which means they're a great choice for:

  • Strong dogs
  • Large dogs

However, stainless steel bowls aren't without their flaws. They can be:

  • Loud (especially for small dogs fighting the bowls or rowdy dogs)
  • Smelly (depending on the quality of bowl, they can create an unpleasant metallic smell, especially if not cleaned regularly)

Ceramic bowls offer different advantages. They are:

  • Heavy
  • More aesthetically pleasing
  • Safe for pets

This makes them ideal for:

  • Small dogs (especially dogs that like to try to play with bowls)
  • Older dogs (especially dogs that may struggle to keep the bowl in place while eating)

Of course, ceramic bowls have obvious shortcomings, namely:

  • They will crack and break over time
  • They are generally much more expensive than stainless steel

Since each of these products offers such unique experiences for pets and pet owners, stores should consider carrying both, if possible.

Why are stainless steel dog bowls important for pet owners?

The culture of pet ownership has shifted, and owners are now more invested in making sure they provide a safe environment for their dogs. Stainless steel bowls are extremely safe, as they won't contaminate food or water, they won't grow bacteria or fungus in the material, and they are durable and long-lasting. All qualities make for a great product option for ethical dog owners.

Are stainless steel dog bowls made in China dangerous?

Any factory in any country is capable of making unsafe products, including dog bowls in China, but this is only if you choose a low-quality supplier. The fact is that China's manufacturing industry is exceptionally robust, and the options for suppliers that can make certified safe stainless steel bowls are going to be numerous. 

If you aren't confident in your ability to vet suppliers to make sure they produce safe products, you may want to enlist the help of a sourcing specialist to do so on your behalf, like Kanary.

How can I know if a dog bowl is really stainless steel if I source it from China?

The best way to be sure that a dog bowl is made of stainless steel is to:

  • Ask for samples before production begins to inspect yourself
  • Visit factories and inspect raw materials
  • Supervise production to ensure appropriate raw materials are being used

If you don't have the time or resources to monitor quality control at a China factory, enlisting a third-party to assist, like Kanary, may be helpful.  

Why are slow feeder dog bowls popular?

Pet owners have become more conscientious about their pets, and it's been a popular culture shift for pet owners to take premium care of their pets. Slow feeder dog bowls are a part of this trend, since they force dogs to eat their food more slowly. This reduces the risk of choking, slows the eating process to reduce the chance of vomiting, and makes it more fun for dogs to eat.

Are silicone dog bowls safe?

Silicone dog bowls are safe for dogs, though you shouldn't consider them as a day-to-day solution. Unlike ceramic or stainless steel bowls, silicone bowls can be torn apart by stronger, larger dogs. This means they just won't last as long, and while silicone won't make your pets sick, a torn apart bowl doesn't do much for holding food or water. 

Silicone dog bowls are ideal for occasional use, like for travel, since they're easier to pack than stainless steel or ceramic bowls.

Do tilted or anti-vomit cat bowls really work?

The answer to this question is surprisingly complex, so businesses should be wary of making specific guarantees. There's not a lot of hard evidence that says tilted cat bowls work to prevent vomiting, though vets often anecdotally say they've seen results.

The reason why the answer isn't as clear is because there are a lot of reasons a cat could be vomiting after eating. They may just eat too fast, or they may have an underlying condition that is causing them to vomit that a tilted bowl won't address. Cat owners will likely need to trial and error different solutions to really see what they can do to help their cats.

Can I trust the automatic pet feeders that my business sources from China?

Yes, as long as you choose a quality provider. There are multiple excellent factories in China that can make automatic pet feeders, but there are also several options that will leave you disappointed. If you need help making sure a supplier is one you can trust, you should consider partnering with an expert, like Kanary.

Are pet products sourced from China really safe?

Yes. It's a myth that China products are unsafe, but that doesn't mean production issues don't exist. If your business is serious about making sure the pet products it sources from China will be safe for pets, you need to make sure you choose a quality supplier and you need to make sure that you have a firm grasp on monitoring quality control.

If your business isn't positioned to vet suppliers or have a hands-on approach to QA at a China partner factory, you should consider partnering with a specialist who can offer those kinds of services, like Kanary.

Will stainless steel dog bowls I source from China meet specific safety and regulatory requirements?

As long as you clearly communicate your design needs to a China factory, take the sampling process seriously, and have a hands-on approach to monitoring production, any product you source from China can meet regulatory standards, including stainless steel dog bowls.

Can Kanary source other pet products besides feeder bowls?

Yes. We are sourcing specialists that pride ourselves in being able to source any legal product your business needs from China. That includes a wide range of pet products, not just feeder bowls aimed at dogs, cats, and small mammals.

Can Kanary help me find niche pet products, like for small mammals, birds, or reptiles?

Yes. You may have found that finding a supplier for niche pet products is difficult, but Kanary can find a supplier for any product you want to sell. This may mean we find a niche factory that specializes in your product choice, or it may mean finding a factory that can create a prototype of a product that doesn't yet exist.

Is it safe to source wholesale pet feeding bowls from China?

Yes. As long as you find a quality supplier and monitor quality control, sourcing wholesale pet feeding bowls from China won't be any more dangerous than sourcing them from any other given country or factory. If you feel you want expert advice on how to vet suppliers or if you need a partner to offer quality control services, then consider partnering with Kanary.
