Besides the fact my puppy doesn’t like to eat out of it, it’s a poor design. Every time I put his food in it and set it on the floor, the rubber ring slips off. You know when you use a bowl like this the puppy will walk in circles to get the food. Once the rubber ring comes off he pushes it around until he’s tired of do doing that and walks away without finishing his food . I wouldn’t even donate this bowl, I threw it away
The bowl is most everything I wanted. It is stainless (I hate those plastic bowls!), it is mostly non-skid, and it certainly helps slow down eating. I would prefer it have a few more "diversions," but this basically does the trick. There is another dish, but I believe the center pieces must be removed for washing. I would recommend this product for the purpose intended.
Good concept, but from the third day on part of my feeding the dogs is threading the black, non-skid ring back onto the bowl. Chewy -- don't you guys product test this stuff??
Rubber ring that holds the bowl in place while eating did not not stay on for even a day! So now the dogs chase the bowl around, while getting kibble everywhere. Bowls do not fit in dishwasher very well. Because of the design they take up a lot of space. I would not buy them again.
Was a little disappointed with the small volume it holds. My hungry Basset is even more disappointed.
I should have bought this sooner. I had been previosly using a light blue plastic slow eater and mocha would have that bowl licked into another room. This action would create a ton of noise. This bowl stays in place and looks nice too!
Bought two of these bowls for my guys... terrible craftmanship. The rubber is completely gone off of one bowl within 2-months... it just overstretched and gave out. We then noticed that the lip of the bowl started splitting in multiple areas, traveling up the sides. It's a hard split, so when you are washing or my guy is licking clean, you can feel the sharpness of the edges. The other bowl is showing similar cracks but not as bad. Pretty disappointing because you would expect stainless steel to withstand a bit more than heavy licking!
Used for our puppy from the beginning, it works great!
I am not a fan of the cheap gasket around the rim of the bowl. I actually want to return it. I have had it for a little over a weeks and the black gasket is already too loose. I need a better quality slow feeder.
This slow feeder bowl has actually slowed my dog down! I was concerned that it wouldn't slow him enough without having more grooves to work around but it has really made a difference. It is also just the right size for the 3/4 cup serving. Instead of gulping his food down in 30 seconds he actually takes time to chew his food and now finishes at about the same time as my other dog. The stainless construction is of good quality compared to other bowls I've seen on the market. I have had no issues with the non-skid trim and the bowl cleans-up nicely.
