I'll start off by saying I have a 5 month old lab puppy that INHALES his food so we purchased this in hopes to slow him down a bit. While it definitely slows him down, the grooves or pockets are almost too deep and his nose/mouth can't reach the food because he's a larger puppy. I'm guessing this device would work better with smaller dogs but once the food got about halfway full in the bowl there was no way he could any of the pieces left so I ended up dumping the leftovers in his old regular bowl. I even added some water to help assist him but his nose got in the way and he ended up flipping the bowl.
We have three dogs, two of which eat their food faster than anything I’ve ever seen! I purchased one of these feeders to see how it worked and WOW, it sure does! He went from being the first one done with his meals (by a long shot) to being dead last. At first I was worried he would be frustrated by it but it seems like he’s grown to find it fun! Will be purchasing another for our other “Hoover vacuum” pup :) Thanks, Chewy!
This bowl works really well. Definitely slows my girl down. I would have given it 5 stars, but it slides all over while she eats. I need to figure out a way to stop that from happening. The bowl is solid and except for the sliding, I am very happy with it.
I tried so many slow feeder bowls and this one actually works! Too big to fit in my neater feeder but that’s ok. Not sure if our rescue will ever slow down during feeding time. She truly knew the meaning of starvation and pain when she was found. We are so thankful for Bark and Roll Rescue for saving this sweet sweet girl. She will never go hungry or feel pain ever again.
I love that the bowl fits perfectly in her raised food feeder. Heavy construction and bottom rubber stoppers, so it doesn't slide. It has definitely helped my dog slow down when eating and has eliminated her burping. Customer service was excellent in recommending just the right size!
It worked ok and did the trick in slowing down Slinky. But, it's a little too deep for him and it slid around the kitchen floor when he ate. We replaced it with a different one that is perfect for him.
We have two fast eaters and have found that most slow feeders don’t slow them down enough. We’ve tried so many and finally found this one, which works amazingly! I think it’s the unique shape of the feeder that works with the shape of the snout to allow them to reach all of the smaller areas but makes it just hard enough to slow them down. We’ve also found with previous feeders that they tend to slide around on our tile floors but this one does a great job of staying in place. The huge bonus for me is that I can just throw it in the dishwasher to clean.
My lil rescue was inhaling his food in seconds. With this bowl, he now takes his time to eat. It is just the right size for the amount he gets and his digestion is better. Great quality product. Very pleased with it.
This bowl has worked well to slow down my dog when eating. He was throwing up after eating and having digestive issues and it has made a big difference. Thank you.
Wish it were bigger, but do love the dishwasher-safe material! Does slow her down a bit. No problem with tipping yet. Here's hoping!
