Rated 5 out of 5 by bulldogpuppylover A thing of beauty
I couldn't stop smiling as I watched my dog struggle to finish her meal. She kept stopping, re evaluating how to go at it and licking up her food rather than inhaling it. The box says this brings feed time from 5 minutes to 15 minutes and I chuckled when I read it but OMG it took my dog nearly 20 minutes to finish her dinner, I am beyond thrilled to have this feeder. No more barfing after meals over here :)
Also just some addition info, I've used other slow feed bowls that still didn't slow my dog down enough and I use wet food on this feeder and it works great.

Perfect for a fast eating Pitbull! She gobbles up everything without a care & then throws it up around the house. This feeding dish stopped that! Purchased in 2015 & it is still one of the best things I have bought for her!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kellyc524 Slows feeding immediately!
My dog now takes 20 mins to eat her meal compared to the 1 minute it used to take her. The design is great it's easy to clean in the dish washer. The feeder is very different from others, most others won't take the dog as long to eat and they are much smaller so the food isn't spread out well but this one is great!

Our medium size dog used to literally hoover her breakfast and dinner in less than five seconds. Seconds, not minutes. And then she would gag and choke and also wound up with a lot of air on her belly. When I saw this slow feeder I couldn't order it fast enough. I set a stopwatch for her first meal with it: 11.5 MINUTES!! from five seconds! They thought of everything (except a rubbery gripping base) with rounded 'blades' of different heights and spacing so no snout or eyes get hurt. Love this product. She also thinks it's now a maze/game and loves it. Thank you!

So my boyfriend rescued a dog but because of where he came from he had eating problems (meaning he inhaled his food.) We would set his bowl down and call him, look down and it was gone literally that quick. Many eating problems worried us with this but the biggest was that he was eating about six cups of food a day (he is a German shepherd/beagle mix so WAY too much food for him) and LOSING weight. We tried the ball trick he just was excited that he got a toy with his meal, the same happened with the rock so I found this bowl and decided to try it...SUCCESS! He is now eating TONS less and the normal ten seconds he used to take to eat (this isn't a joke either) he now takes ten to twenty min for half the amount of food and he is gaining his weight and has his energy back. I could not recommend this bowl more easy to use, beneficial for the dog and easy to clean (it goes in the dishwasher if you want but can be washed easy enough not using it) the ONLY downfall is if you step on it its about as bad as a Lego so don't put it near any walkways.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rockymom Great for fast eaters
We had a another slow feeder bowl for our malamute, but that barely slowed him. This works like a charm. Slows him down enough so he doesn't make himself sick. We still split his food into two servings spaced 10 20 minutes apart, but now it takes him a good deal longer to finish. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Straightshooter Thought it would never work but it did.
I have a Mini Schnauzer who used to throw up about 30% of the time after eating because she would eat her food in about 30 seconds. She is also very fussy and skidish about what she eats out of so I thought there was a good chance she would not eat from this dish but I figured it was worth a shot. I got the smaller size and her first experience she was cautious but got the hang of it and then actually seemed to enjoy it. Now she absolutely loves it! She gets very excited when it's feeding time. It now takes her about 10 minutes to eat. ( I feed her 2 times a day so it is 10 minutes for a half day portion). She no longer throws up her food and now gets a bit of a challenge with each meal. I love this product! I also purchased the larger size for our other dog which is a Lab mix although she did not eat too quickly I thought it would be fair :-) and also challenge her a bit at meal time as well. She took to hers right away and seems to enjoy it very much.
I have seen these at the local pet store for at least $10 more than Chewy.com so it was well worth ordering on line. They arrived in 2 days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by greyTscott BEST slow bowl! Better than others!
I LOVE this feeder! I have been feeding my greyhound using the outward hound fun feeders (orange swirl and blue maze) but he was able to "master" eating from those bowls and finish his food in about 4 minutes.
This grass feeder takes my dog AT LEAST 15 minutes to eat! It is a great design because the "grass" is arranged in a way that makes it impossible for the dog to eat more than a few bites at a time. The dog has to constantly reach down, then come back up and look for a new spot in the bowl to stick their nose.
I was worried about a lot of food being spilled from the sides of the bowl, but it is not an issue. I give my dog about 2 cups of kibble per meal- a few pieces of dry food falls out, but it is the same amount as any other bowl.
I definitely recommend this bowl above all others we have tried!
