Rated 5 out of 5 by Oliversmom Great bowl!
My pittie/boxer mix is a gulper. This bowl has slowed him down quite a bit. He still eats his food within a minute or so but it was only taking about 20 seconds before.
He's really funny to watch because when he gets down to the last few kibbles he gets mad and tries to turn the bowl over because he's got to work to get the final ones out.
I was afraid a plastic bowl wouldn't be substantial enough for him but this is a very hard durable plastic and the bowl has some weight to it.
This is a great bowl and the price was excellent.

Donated the new bowl to Genessee County Humane Society in Burton, Michigan.
My dog wanted his old bowl to eat from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoriC very good choice
bought this dish with the hopes of slowing my Siberian down from eating so fast. Very pleased. While he still is a little quicker than I would like, this dish has made a significant difference. I would definitely purchase it again should I need another. Don't know if it is dishwasher safe but I have not tried. I hand wash only.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Daxlover Didn't help his fast water gulping
My dog tends to drink water extremely fast. Almost every time, he throws up the water. No warning, just opens his mouth and liquid comes out. I thought this bowl would help slow him down. It did not. Still happens. Might have to go with a Despenser like hamsters get.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Momof4 Best feeding bowl ever.
Great for feeding my dog Onyx. He's a toy shitzu..all black. With a regular bowl he was gulping and choking on his food. But since I purchased this bowl he is eating better and not bringing the food back up from eating so fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChristineG No more choking!!
I have four dogs, and each races through their food so that the first one to finish doesn't dive into their bowl to steal the remaining food. I usually need to play guard for one dog in particular so his food isn't poached by his brother. Three of the four inhale food without much chewing going on, I hate hearing them cough & choke from eating this way, so this bowl was a true godsend. The three have definitely slowed to a non-choking pace, they "might" even be chewing now, at least a little. I still need to guard one bowl, but at least we've slowed the pace for a more healthy mealtime.
Bowls are solid and well-contructed. They have a rubberized bottom that is meant to prevent slippage, but when they are nearing the bottom of the bowl, their enthusiasm is stronger than the rubber, so they scoot around a bit. I don't mind, and neither do they.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ACS1 Love this bowl
I have this bowl in the extra small for my large maine coon mix kitty who is a very fast eater. This slows him down considerably. He is a recent rescue who has a lot of stress related to food and is also on a diet so balancing these has been a challenge. I am currently putting 2oz of wet food in this 3x/day and it has held up beautifully, though I have just been hand washing. This is the perfect size for his amount of food.
I have also slowed down his eating a little and noticeably reduced his food stress by introducing a foraging toy that he has access to at all times- if he has access to food and knows it will always be there he's not so scared about it disappearing if he doesn't absorb it as soon as I set it down. Of course I set the foraging toy on a hard setting so he "hunts" for it, which is fun for him and keeps him from getting it all out at once and making himself sick.
