WOPET 7L automatic dog feeder review: Very good product, terrible instruction manual

Dogs

By Deborah Gardner Conta

I would give the WOPET 7L automatic dog feeder a five-star rating except for the useless “instruction” manual that comes with the feeder. I have been in touch with WOPET and voiced my unhappiness with the manual and received a nice response plus a link to the YouTube video which is somewhat helpful. But in spite of the manual, the feeder is a very good product and my cat adapted to it without a problem once I figured out how to set it up. I purchased the feeder (I’ve had others from other manufacturers) in order to follow a weight loss program (for my cat) because I have had the problem of responding to my cat’s wishes and giving her too much food. No longer! I use the larger portion control mechanism, so I can’t comment on the smaller one that’s included, and I measured the outflow of kibble when I set up the feeder for four meals. Four meals dispensing the kibble I’m using is 1/2 cup total. So far Nettie isn’t losing weight but she isn’t gaining it either and while she hovers obsessively near the feeder she isn’t prowling around my ankles so much, demanding my attention. The feeder is very quiet– loud enough to alert a hungry cat to pounce on the food–but not so loud as to interrupt us at night. I’ve read the other reviews which are all over the place and I can’t comment on problems other people have had. My problem was with the poorly written, incomplete instructions and not with the feeder. I am pleased with the Wopet and I have ordered a second one (for a different location). Paws crossed, it will be as satisfactory as the first one.
