Logan cannot get enough to eat..

I am getting so frustrated with Logan. He is fed two times a day about 3/4 cup of kibble. He gets a few treats a day and usually some carrots. When I put his bowl down he eats it so fast and swallows it whole. He is done in 20 seconds and starts trying to get to his sisters bowls. He actually sticks his head in Laila's crate to eat out of her bowl.

WHY is he so hungry??? What can I put into his bowl to fill him up and make him eat slower??

Any ideas?

Laurie,
I have the same problem with Scudder.
I am thinking about getting these for my boys. Bella can't eat any slowers...

I also add freeze dried veggies to their diet. I think this makes them feel a little bit fuller....

UPDATE. I just order the bowls in small. My boys really need to slow down!

Same thing here when Ache was eating kibble. So I used one of those toys that she needed to move around so the kibbles fell down slowly. It helped a lot. Check the pic.

My problem is that I have to do it in his dinner bowl as I have the three girls and I don't want then going after thei ball as well. Linda, let me know how the bowl works with Scudder. Are you making the veggies or are they just frozen in a bag?

I find some dogs in multiple dog households will eat as fast as they can because they are afraid one of the other dogs will get their food if they don't. They also think if they hurry they can eat someone else's food also. (not so dumb, huh?)
Try placing his bowl in his crate and closing him in. Perhaps he'll relax about it.

He does not have a crate in the kitchen. Only the little one does. Maybe I can feed him in the dining room.

Jack inhales his food, too. I have always fed him in his crate away from the evil snarky Nessie who doesn't like to have beasties bother her while she leisurely chews dinner.

Maybe it is a leftover from puppyhood. Jack was from a big litter of six. If he didn't eat fast, no din-din for him.

TTFN,
Pam

I will let you know. I'm sure it will slow Scudder down. He races to eat his food because he then goes after Bella's!

I buy Dr Harvey's Veg to Bowl. It's a mix of sweet and regular potatoes, carrots, broccoli, beets etc. All you do is add hot water for 10 min.

I just read you can put a large rock in the center of his bowl. Get a rock that is too large for his mouth. He will have to slow down to eat around the rock. I will try this with Scuds & Fred tomorrow!

Laurie, What I do when I have a dog that is overly hungry like that I would feed him about half a can of green beans with it. The green beans will help him feel fuller with out having to worry about putting weight on.
