It's natural for dogs to play with their food. Add a bit of fun to every bite with a Fun Feeder! Featuring meal-lengthening ridges and mazes, Fun Feeders keep pups engaged for up to 10 times longer at chow time.
I work at a dog daycare and use these type of feeding bowls for dogs that swallow their food in one go. It really does work. I went on chewy to find one and this one looked promising. Well it wasn’t for my kitten because she unfortunately couldn’t reach it. I want it to work because she literally does not breathe when she eats lol Hopefully when she gets bigger it will do it’s justice. I tried using it on my goldendoodle and it works great for treats but not for her regular feedings BECAUSE SHE IS A PICKY EATER!! With this she unfortunately picks only what she wants to eat.
Cute idea, not ideal for my baby though

This bowl is great for puppies that eat too fast and inhale their food...it's not ideal for my baby only because it pained me to watch her struggle to eat because she didn't understand why I fed her like that...any new changes to anything she has anxiety and I literally felt like a cruel owner for feeding her in a slow feeder bowl. I almost cried at the sight of her eating but she would bloat once she ate her food in a normal bowl...I was worried about her flipping her stomach if she didn't slow down eating. Not a hit for my baby. Still love Chewy.com
Slows Our Quick Eater Down
on Oct 14, 2018
Our dog had been eating from slow feeders since we adopted him. He has a metal bowl with a hump in the middle that he has to dig the food around. And he has a wobbler that he bats around the room knocking kibble out. We got him this one to try another kind. The bowl doesn't skid while he noses the kibble around the maze and if defiantly keeps him busy. This slow feeder has definitely slowed him down and so far it seems to be pretty durable. Easy to clean. We are happy with the purchase.
works great but my dog is not a very happy camper
on Sep 19, 2018
bought this and another slow feeder bowl for my mini Blue Heeler, Tater, and his "bro", a JRT mix named Jerry. Two of my six dogs. Other four eat just fine, no rushing, but these two knuckleheads act as if they have not have anything to eat in weeks, so it is a scarfarama every AM and PM. Put their food in these and set them down in front of them....haha, at first they sniffed like, "what the heck is this?", gave me the look to go with it too. Finally they started eating and normally, Tater finishes his bowl in all of thirty seconds. Took the poor guy nearly ten minutes to eat his dinner. All of the others were sitting around him, in a semi circle, just watching.

He will get the hang of it but right now, he is not a very happy camper and he really doesn't like his mommy much. LOL!… more
Complete Game Changer!!
on Jul 28, 2018
This bowl has been a complete game changer. Our little pup had been having troubles scarfing her food down so fast that she would throw up whole kibble pieces. I decided to purchase one of these, on a whim and Gracie hasn't gotten sick once since we started using this bowl!! Normally I am not one to leave reviews on products but I find it so helpful reading people's reviews on products so I wanted to write a little review. I honestly can't say enough good things about this product. It is also such a sturdy bowl and has grippy parts on the bottom to keep it from sliding around or tipping over. We have been using it for about 2 weeks now!
The BEST bowl ever!!!
on Sep 18, 2018
We have been through several bowls to help Fozzie eat slower. He would finish quickly and try to eat our other dog's food. This bowl is awesome! He seems to enjoy finding the food in all the nooks and crannies and now he calmly finishes his meal after all the others. It's an added bonus that he doesn't barf from eating so fast :)
Slows down even the most ravenous eaters
on Oct 7, 2018
This is a great bowl for your fast eater. My pup is only 16 weeks old but was starting to get a little ravenous when eating, her dad actually eats the same way. So, we actually have two of these bowls, and they are the best invention ever for fast eaters. These bowls have slowed them down drastically while eating. I recommend them to everyone who tells me their dog eats crazy fast.

My dogs used to eat their food in less than 30 seconds with a regular bowl. Now, it takes them over 3 minutes to eat their food. My Beagle used to get bloated and drink a lot of water after eating. She needed to be burped after every meal. Now, she drinks a little bit of water after eating and never gets bloated. These bowls have worked great for my dogs.

I am in love with this product. I have a 4 month old large breed puppy who would scarf down 1.5 cups of food in seconds. I'm now able to feed her and take a shower while she's eating. This definitely helps with making her take her time to eat her food and keeps her from just swallowing everything whole.

We used this for the first time tonight and it is way bigger than I expected. It's bigger than a normal sized dinner plate, and a cup of food doesn't go very far in this thing without there just being a thin layer of food all over it. However, my dog loved it! It took him easily over 6 minutes where it would usually take him 2 to eat. My only complaint is when he got towards the end of his meal he began scooting the bowl across the floor trying to get the food out of the corners.
