Mountain Pet Bowl

So there I am, enjoying a nice morning coffee out of my new Mountain Mug and ever get the feeling you're being watched?

I looked around, saw no one, and went back to enjoy my next sip. That's when I felt the tug on my leg.

"Meow!" said the cat, jealously.
"Woof!" said the dog, with a subtle hint of authority.

I knew what had to be done, and arrangements were made.

And now we all drink & eat out of matching mugs and bowls and all I can say is that life is really, really good.

Note: Because of the increased shipping costs to make sure your bowl arrives safely, all ceramic items are final-sale only and not eligible for return or exchange.


Beautiful Aesthetic, Functional Design

The Mountain Pet Bowl is a beauty to behold.

These handmade wheel-thrown ceramic pet bowls have an outdoorsy design that speaks to the sophisticated-yet-rugged style of your favorite pet. What can you say? You raised them right.

The Mountain Pet Bowl is made with stoneware clay with exposed hand-carved raw clay detailing. The bowls are available in both 6" and 8" sizes (handmade so it may vary slightly).

Can be used as a food bowl or a water bowl for your pets - order two bowls to have a matching set!

Every Mountain Pet Bowl is food, microwave, and dishwasher safe.

Pro-Tip: Just because they're styled as "pet bowls", there's no pet required. Enjoy a big bowl of ice cream or use them as serving bowls (pistachios anyone?) - the lack of a pet shouldn't stop you from enjoying this incredible bowl!

One-Of-A-Kind, Limited Runs

Each Mountain Pet Bowl is made by hand, one clay curve and brushstroke at a time, which means they are all unique and may be slightly different in size, coloring, or design. While the overall coloration and style will be consistent, please be aware that the bowl you receive may look slightly different than the photos on our website.

Please know that because of the handmade nature we aren't able to stock large quantities of the pet bowls and it can sometimes take 6-8 weeks for the artist to craft more.

If the pet bowl is in stock and you're thinking about ordering, don't wait on it!

COVID-19 Status

Our warehouse is continuing to take all necessary measures to ship orders and keep our team safe. Life may feel like it's returning to normal in your local area (we hope!), but the impact of COVID is still extremely present in the world of shipping and fulfillment.

Most orders for in-stock items are leaving our warehouse within 1-3 business days, but please be understanding if it takes additional time to get your order shipped.

If you choose an express shipping rate (FedEx Overnight or FedEx 2-Day) we're still getting most expedited orders out the door within one business day from when you order.

Please note that even though FedEx Ground or Priority Mail may cost more than Standard/Free Shipping, they're not considered an expedited shipping method. Any delivery times quoted are estimates only and it may not ship for 1-3 business days after you order as noted above.

Bottom line: We're doing everything we can to get your order to you quickly and we sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding during this time!

Our shipping takes place Monday through Friday - any orders placed over the weekend or after our daily mail pickup will be shipped in the order received.


If you choose a shipping option that has a quoted time like "FedEx Ground (2 Business Days)" or even "FedEx Overnight (1 Day)", please remember that isn't a guarantee that the order will be there exactly 1 or 2 days from the moment you order it - we still need time to pack & ship your order (see above).

When it comes to the carriers, the quoted times should also always be thought of as estimates, not guarantees. Expedited methods like FedEx 2-Day or Overnight are pretty reliable in their delivery times (hence the cost), but services like Ground/Priority can certainly be optimistic with their estimates.


We offer the ability to pre-order and backorder some items on our site when they are not yet in stock. If an item you are purchasing isn't currently in stock, you'll see a note displayed in your shopping cart that indicates the expected shipping time for your order.

Please note that the expected shipping time is an estimate based on when we expect to receive new inventory.

Sometimes it takes us even longer than expected to receive inventory (especially with unpredictable COVID delays) and sometimes we receive inventory much sooner than the timeframe we estimate. Your order will always ship as soon as the inventory is in our hands!

We aren't able to split-ship your orders into multiple deliveries - so if you are ordering an item that isn't currently in stock along with other items that are, please be aware that your order won't ship until all items are in stock. If you're anxious to receive the in-stock items, we recommend placing a separate order so you can receive the in-stock items without delay.


Please see our Can I Request A Specific Shipping Carrier? page with important details on which carriers we offer and how to make sure you get your package delivered properly.


When receiving an international order your package will need to pass through Customs in your country. All of our packages will have a Customs Declaration Form which details the items in your package and their value.

PLEASE NOTE: There are almost always additional charges to receive your package when you order from outside your own country - these charges are Customs Duties and Import Taxes which are your responsibility to pay (often before you are allowed to collect the package). The laws and taxes are different in every country and Trek Light Gear has no way of knowing in advance what these taxes and fees will be. Please be aware of this when placing your order, we don't want you to be surprised when the package shows up and you owe additional money!

If you have any additional questions about international shipping methods or rates just let us know!


As you've likely seen on our website, we stand behind our products with what we call our Happiness Guarantee. So, what does that mean exactly?

In a nutshell: We want you to be happy with what you buy from us, and if you aren't - you've got our promise that we'll always do whatever we can to bring you happiness.

Within reason, right? Maybe you're sad because everything in our store doesn't cost $1, or you wish our 30-day return window was actually 3 years - well, we need to have some policies and rules so we can survive as a small business.

What matters is that we're here for you.

We truly care about your happiness, and will always do what we can to help - maybe it's a discount on your next order, store credit for a future purchase, or just going out of our way to make sure that the next item you buy from us is exactly what you want.

Feel Good. Do Good. Pass It on.

These are beautifully made bowls! Highly recommend. Love how artistic they are.


First we ordered the Mountain Mug as a Christmas gift, and we loved it so much, we got the dog bowl to keep in the living room. Our pup was always drinking out of the Christmas tree, so we realized he needed a water source in that part of the house. It doesn’t look like a dog bowl, in fact it looks like a beautiful piece of pottery that could be displayed on a shelf or used as a serving dish. That’s why we like it! Tip: it’s on the shallower side, which is perfect for our short-legged dachshund.

My only suggestion for Trek Light is to improve on the packaging. The mug arrived wrapped in a ton of bubble wrap directly in the shipping box. We gifted that first mug and would have appreciated a more aesthetic presentation and giftable package. It would also be nice to insert a card with info about the artist. Honestly I was surprised at the thoughtlessness of the packaging for such a thoughtful product. But don’t let that stop you from purchasing this gorgeous piece!

Great items

We purchased two pieces for our new adopted dog. They are great. Look great and are just right. The 10" is a little large for him but it works well.

Beautiful art for spoiled dogs!

We purchased two of these bowls for our dogs who have been using metal food bowls for years. It was nice to give them something a little fancier, but it has also worked out that the bowls are a little heavier so they can't get pushed around and are much quieter. They are shallow bowls, but a cup of food leaves lots of room in the larger size. We are concerned for the day we accidentally drop it, but until then, we will enjoy their beauty!

Love, Love, Love

I purchased the larger bowl and the smaller bowl, to use for chips and these bowls, they are beautifully made and I have gotten tons of compliments.
