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.
All I can say is Wow!

Our 6mo old German shepherd/huskie mix is a gobble gut. I swear she inhaled her food in less than 30 seconds flat. We knew we needed to do something so I decided to try this. Not only has she been eating slower, we have seen such a huge change in her meal time manner all together. Even when we give her treats she has been taking her time with them. If you are on the fence about this bowl, jump! Add to cart right now! Also the bowl doesn't move around on the floor which is a big plus! Happy fur baby and mommy!!!
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
Solved our issue

My 3 year old, Ginger, was swallowing a lot of air when she would eat and would throw her food right back up when she was done. Was concerned and did not know why she was doing that. She does have IBD, but this was different. Her throw up was whole kibble and bubbles, not yellow bile. Gave the bowl a try and she has not thrown her food up since. Hs been like 2-3 weeks now. She definitely slowed down eating and I am soooooo relieved I bought this bowl.
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.

Bought this for my German Shephard and it works great! Takes her about twice as long to eat. I'm going to get this one in a smaller size for the little one. The big one holds about 2 cups of food and the dog really has to work at it to get it out. My little girl has a similar bowl but I'm going to get her the smaller version because she still eats too fast from the other one.
works great but my dog is not a very happy camper

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

We had been having trouble with my Pomeranian gulping down all his food and then trying to steal my other poms food. He had starting having issues with constipation and weight gain. When we first gave him food in the bowl he was not happy he got mad haha. However now he is adjusted to it and he seems satisfied after he eats and it has helped his digestion as well.
Definitely slows him down!

Max used to gobble his food down in seconds...not now ;) pretty much needs to use his tongue to get the food out, but he gets it done :) Max has recently switched to Science Diet digestive care i/d, due to tummy issues, he loves the food but was eating too fast. Max is a 45 pound shepherd/hound mix.
Slows down even the most ravenous eaters

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.
