I have an Australian cattle dog who literally inhales and swallows his food whole and then pukes it back up, in about one minute. This slowed him down to at least 10 minutes of eating and no puking! So happy, it also doesn’t move around because of the grips on the bottom.
I bought the four cup a few months ago and I didn't realize how large it would be. But, I needed something that would not only slow her eating, but make her work for it and be fun at the same time. This bowl is really very pretty, it's super durable, and slows her eating just like I wanted. Would absolutely recommend this!
Got this bowl for one of my labs because she always inhaled food. Have a slow feeder bowl with 4 sections in it that works fine for one dog but not this one. She was still eating so fast she was getting reflux. Got this bowl and it has slowed her down tremendously. Would definitely recommend it for fast eaters.
My pitbull puppy is a voracious eater. We're talking about a cup of food gone in under 2 minutes if she could have her way. I've tried several other slow feeders with little luck. Then I found this magic bowl. She's now eating at an acceptable speed which means less tummy upset or bloating for her and less kibble spread around my kitchen floor.
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.
I'm very pleased with the bowl, I personally love the color and design, its super easy to clean and most importantly it DOES slow Oakley-Jayne down. No more inhaling her entire meal in a matter of seconds - mission accomplished!
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.
Perfect Bowl For The Fast Eating Dog Now Im Satisfied My Dog Will Digest The Food Slowly And Eat At A Slower Pace
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.
