This feeder slows my dog down who woofs down her meals. It's a pretty color and design and I've been happy with it. Upon first use she got frustrated and tried to pick it up and dump it (lol) but a correction and she has been leaving it alone. She will walk away when the work gets a little harder to the bottom and look for other food and then return to finish. I've been stashing food in various treat dispensers and toys in an effort to slow her down, so that is why she leaves and then returns.
3 1/2 years ago, the veterinarian recommended a maze feeder for my exceedingly hyper but equally smart doberman. I purchased a different feeder and she figured out how to beat it in 4 months and was back to wolfing down her food. I replaced it with this model and after 3 years, it stills slows her eating. I highly recommend this feeder to slow your dog's eating. I am replacing the original because she used the first as a chew toy, but the performance of the feeder is first rate!
A 75 pound dog eats from this dish. Her eating time noticeably increased which was the goal. The spaces in the raised design/maze are narrow which is intentional to increase difficulty and time to eat. An extra shimmy is required when filling the dish for average size kibble to fall in the spaces. The dish comfortably holds 1.5 cups of average size kibble. This dish is being used outside for 2 months now and shows no sign of deterioration.
I purchase this product or one similar for all my puppies when they leave here for their new homes. It is a great item for the "Going Home" gift bags. Many times pups will leave with a very ambitious appetite and this item helps slow them down.
This bowl is great. It’s cute and it does the job. However my bully-mix is not a fan. She was so excited to eat dinner and when she saw me pour her food in this, she immediately began to pout and protest. She’s always very gassy and bloated as she inhales her food in less than 20 seconds. That’s why I opted for this and it worked so well she didn’t eat (LOL). She just needs to get used to it and will eventually eat. She’s just stubborn and needs consistency.
I have a fast eating 11 week golden retriever puppy and due to his fast eating, he often got a stomach upset. This bowl is engaging, teaches him to slow down but to work for his food. It slows him down for about 8 minutes and it's fun to watch him.
We got this for our puppy who eats way too fast. This worked perfectly in slowing her down. Unfortunately due to some medical conditions, she can only eat blended hard dog food mixed with water. The mushy food is a pain to clean out of this, so we do not use it. We hope when she is older, she can eat dry dog food again, which will allow us to use this wonderful product again.
We have a puppy who can knock down a half cup of food in a regular bowl in less than 10 seconds. This slows her down to better than two minutes. It is much better for her and she seems to enjoy the challenge. Highly recommended.
Timber, our 70 lb. voracious golden retriever puppy loves his new Outward Bound bowl. It slows him way down and make eating even more fun and interesting!
Love this for our 12wk old mastiff pup who can inhale 1.5 cup of food sub 10 seconds. This has greatly lengthened the time it takes him to eat buy minutes, and he seems to really enjoy making sure he gets every last kibble out of it. Started using it at 10wks, first few tries he could only get 3/4 of the food of it out and I had to dump the rest on the floor for him, but he's fine with it now. I also own the orange swirly one and the blue puzzle-looking one to keep it interesting.
