I bought this orange 4 cup feeder and also the purple one for my two medium/large dogs and I have been using them for several years now with no regrets. Both dishes work very well, but the orange bowl is much harder with deeper channels and limited access points. My older, branier, and much more driven cattledog retrieves both bowls before I fill them, then he gets this orange one for the mental workout and the younger, more distractable mountain dog/lab mix gets the purple one to make sure she finishes first. It takes them both 5-10 minutes that way. I mix it up sometimes if they are in their crates and there is no risk of the older one bullying the younger one away from her food when he finishes early. The dishes are much bigger than normal food bowls and if I were to buy them again I would be tempted to get the 2 cup sizes, even for my 60 lb dog.
We ordered the four cup bowl for our two Pyrenees puppies (12 weeks) to use. These are my first giant breed pups, and I'm terrified of bloat so I wanted to start them on slow feeding right now. The bowl is a great size, and so far has shown no damage from tiny land shark attacks. I think they might be a bit too young for this one as they can't seem to understand how to make the food move through the spiral. We're going to order the starter level bowl and work back up to this one.
Didn't work for me, very dissatisfied with this item. Dog chew on the top part trying to get food out and another dog flipped it over and was biting the bottom and bite right through it creating a hole on the bottom side
The 4 cup spiral orange feeder does not work for my 55 lb. Dalmatian mix. The ridges are too deep and the spiral design just causes her to push the pieces round and round. I want to slow her down, not frustrate her.
Sullys favorite thing is eating. When his regular bowl was placed in front of him the food disappeared in seconds. The outward bound bowl slows him way down, he circles around the bowl to get ever morsel out of the fun spiral.
This is the BEST slow feed bowl I have ever used for any of my dogs over the past 50+ years. I have never had a bowl work as well. I am amazed and pleased at how much it slows my super 'vacuum cleaner' eater down to making him eat his kibble like a normal dog. Thank You!
Our girl has always devoured her food so over the years I've learned different ways to slow her down. Granted, she still doesn't chew but at least it takes her longer to eat. The fun feeders are perfect for her. It slows her down a lot when she eats so no worries about her stomach flipping
Slow feeder is a great idea, but openings are too narrow and deep for a large breed Golden Retriever with a long snoot. Takes her way too long and it's difficult to get every piece of kibble. Perhaps it will work better for other breeds/sizes. I won't be using it.
The 2-cup orange bowl is the perfect size for our 50-lb staffy and easily fits 1 cup of medium/large dry kibble. She used to clean out a traditional bowl in about 30 seconds, and with this it takes her 4-5 minutes. I can also see her mental gears turn while she figures out how to get every last piece, so it's an effortless way to give her some enrichment twice a day.
I purchased these feeders in the past due my dogs inhaling their food. So they definitely work for my purposes to slow down eating
