    I wash all dishes - dogs, bird, snakes - in the dishwasher. I see it the same way as preparing raw meat in a dish and then putting that dish in the dishwasher (which doesn't gross people out at all). I sanitize pet bowls and it is just much easier to use the sanitize cycle in the dishwasher than any other method. But, interestingly, my dog-loving family is not grossed out by the dog bowls in the dishwasher but are grossed out by the snakes' dish in the dishwasher.

    But we don't lick each other's ice creams in my house... humans or pets.

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    There's also studys made that families with pets have healthier kids, than falimies without pets. You can be too clean and hygienic too, you know....

    I wash them with the other dishes with no problem. I get the same thing from family members and friends. My dogs mouth is probably cleaner than some people. That is a take of who is dog lovers or not.

    Once in awhile I put all of Ruckus's hard toys through the dishwasher with no soap to give them a good cleaning...so no I don't think washing their bowls in there is gross. I'd wash Ruckus's in the dishwasher if it didn't have a rubberized bottom.

    Nope, not gross. I just did it yesterday. @brutus77 makes a good point.

    Not gross at all! What I think is gross is that a guest in your house would say something!! We have two signs in our house very close to the front door that say "This is the dogs house, we just live here & you are just a guest" and one that says "You don't HAVE to like our dog, but remember we don't HAVE to like you" We like to live by those quotes

    No Way is this gross, These are Your Bullies, they are your four legged babies, I let Elmo and my other 4 legged babies lick the bowl clean before I wash them. I eat after Elmo, he is my Boy. What you are doing is NOT Gross.

    Not gross. I wash their bowls and my parrot bowls in the dishwasher to get them clean. I hated eating at my grandmothers because she hand washed and her dishes always had a greasy film so I'd rather dishes be run thru hot water and soap. I also wash my plastic dish scrubber and bottle brush in the dishwasher daily. Do they realize that at hospitals reusable medical surgical tools are run thru sterlizers? Much like the concept of a dishwater but on a whole other level and hot water and steam are part of that.

    I do the same thing. Everything gets clean, what difference does it make, right?
