Tap the bowl to wake it up and if there are lights flashing, wait until all the lights are off. Then, press firmly on the front of the metal tray (in the middle of where the lights are) until all of the lights turn on and you hear a chime. Next, pour your pet’s food until all 10 lights illuminate, indicating that you’ve poured to 100% of your planned meal. After you’ve hit the feed goal, you’ll hear a successful chime and the lights will turn off. It’s now safe to set the bowl down for your pet to enjoy.
