I am currently using a plastic dog house inside of a run. If want to keep the food dry, I have to put it inside the doghouse, which is not real accessable for everyday feeding. The way my set up is, my food is outside. But everytime it rains the food gets wet. I can not seem to find a feeder that protects the food from getting wet? Any suggestions? I'm starting to get worried as Indiana Winters are fast aproaching! Heather - Noblesville IN 2 buff orphs.
