Turn 1 no-tip dish into countless indestructible ones!!

Here' something we did when we raised deer and hog dogs.These dishes can be any size,work for food or water, and any animal!! Must use a plastic no tip dog or cat dish of your choice, we get them from the dollar store. Get a bag of cement mix and mix to directions, no stones,turn your dish upside down give a light cote of Pam spray and fill with the cement mix,make sure its filled to the rim,level,leave to dry really good.Once dry turn over and pop your new heavy duty hard for the animals to move dish.If you're careful to not crack the plastic one you can use it to make many,we made tons for the other guys with dogs that were penned and hard on dishes. These last a lifetime, make small or big your choice!!

Fabulous idea!

 

I'll be making one to use as a chicken treat container.  Here up north, I like to give the hens oatmeal as a treat when it's cold out.  But they destroy whatever the oatmeal is put into...not with this concept!

I have used the same dishes for my dogs,chickens,horses and cows for 20+ years now!!The best part is that dish will always stay in the same place you put it.Super when you make the small ones to put in your puppy crated, no more chewed dishes or spills.
