How to make an automatic dog feeder

This automatic dog feeder is very easy to make at home. The basis of this project are two plastic jugs that we will turn into our dog’s feeder. You will have food for 3 – 4 days.

To carry out this project you will need very few things.

Necessary materials.

  • A utility knife to cut the plastic.
  • Marker pen
  • A silicone gun will also be necessary.
  • Finally, 2 empty and clean plastic jugs.


It is very easy to make this automatic feeder, look at the steps to follow.

  • First, you must cut the upper part of one of the carafes, for this you are going to make a mark with the marker. The cut should be made just before the curve of the carafe begins.
  • After marking, proceed to cut that part, you will have part of the handle still attached to the container.
  • Mark the part of the handle that was left and cut to remove it.
  • On the other hand, you must take the second carafe and placing it on the side where the handle is, mark to make a hole through which the narrowest part of the first carafe enters.
  • This cut should be done in the flat part of the container, which is below where the handle is.
  • Once cut, check that it fits perfectly.
  • You will then proceed to cut out the handle part. You should leave the side of the lid and a finger gap between this cut and the previous one.
  • We are also going to make the lid of the feeder. To do this, you must mark the first carafe from the top about three fingers apart. Then proceed to cut and test that it fits on the outside, like a lid.
  • Clean marker pen stains with regular alcohol.
  • Put the glue gun to heat.
  • Glue a piece of plastic from the ones cut out above, inside the longest part of the first jug.
  • Insert the food container (bottle 1) into the hole in bottle 2 and glue with silicone.
  • Wait for it to dry, remove the lid, place the food and ready to feed your pet.
