Dogit Pink Go Slow Anti-Gulping Dog Bowl
I'm glad I bought it. It really helps.
My Pug is fed twice a day and she inhales most of her kibble, instead of chewing it. About a month ago, she choked because she had a bunch of kibble stuck in her throat. She couldn't breathe. I had to fish out the kibble so she could breathe again. I knew then, that it was time to do something more than just monitor her while she's eating. We started hand-feeding her. But I couldn't depend on her sitter to do the same when we go out of town. I told a colleague about what happened and she recommended this bowl. I had seen bowls like this before and thought that it wouldn't work for a flat-nosed dog. ...I figured that she wouldn't be able to get all of the kibble out of the bowl with the obstructions. But, I took a chance and bought it, and it really helps. I think she still doesn't chew most of her food, but she can't get as many kibbles in her mouth at one time with this bowl. Which is great. We have always monitored her when she's eating and we will continue to do so, because it's the right thing to do. But I have more peace of mind with this bowl now.

This bowl DOES slow down eating. Nice heavy weight too.
My Shih Tzu girl, dachshund/cocker girl, and chihuahua/terrier boy all gulped their food in a race to the finish. Now I hear crunching from the kibbles being chewed, and no more loud burps when finished. I ordered size small and it's a fine size for my dogs (Chewy also has other color bowls).

OK for medium size dogs
I would recommend this product for medium size dogs--25lbs or more. I can see how it could be really helpful for them. But----
I have been looking for a small slow feed bowl for some time now. This is the smallest I have found and it barely suffices for one of my dogs. It is still too big for any of the others, they are all 10 lbs or less. If anyone knows where I can find a truly small one I would love to hear it.

Slowed my girl down some
The bowl design is good and the extra small is perfect for my mini doxies. The problem now is that the brand of food she eats is very small kibble so she never chews, just swallows! However this bowl did slow her down by half. Seems to be very well made and would definitely recommend it

The works great for fast eating dogs. The notched side allows for easy lifting of the bowl. Clean-up is easy.

Bowl was broken.
The bowl had a sheet of wrapping paper over it in a box and of course was broken into pieces when I got it. I was to get a replacement with my dog food order, but it didn't come.

Perfect gadget for a GULPER
My lil Maltese gulps her water n food as if there is no tmoro!!! This feeding gadget distracts her from doing that. I separate the beans, carrots, n kibbles in the ridges this feeder has and this actually became more of an interactive piece of toy for her!!! Works for me and my lil spoiled maltese is happy and learning to be a lil lady by eating her food more slowly. No worries of bloat or any other digestive issues. Made of very durable material. Chewy.com fulfills their VERY QUICK DELIVERY!!
