any other dogs eat too fast??

I don't think I've ever seen Cooper sit and chew his kibble. EVER. I drop down his food, and Daisy's at the same time in the laundry room. Then Bodie runs to my room and gets in his crate. I grab his food container, pour up his bowl and put it in his crate. Look down..and there's Cooper. It's CRAZY!!

Anyways, I came across this dish. Wondered what everyone thought??
Dh just said we could get a bigger dish, and put a big rock in it He's so darn cheap, lol.

I WISH Mijo had that problem! I've seen those before but don't know anyone that has one. Looks like it might work though! Let us know if you end up getting one.

Tritia, you should ask Sally (mintchip) I think she bought something similar for Comet (or Oliver?). It really is supposed to work. Luckily I don't have that problem! Kubrick is a good eater but he carefully chews every bite.

I'll tell ya, it's so bad we've thought about getting one of those treat balls that they push around. And it drops out a treat at a time. Let him move that thing around for 45 mins, till his meal is done

Sedona inhales her food. I haven't considered a special dish for her though. Perhaps I should. She doesn't chew, she just swallows and then I have to keep her from invading McKenna's and Rumor's bowls.

Bogart and Brando both devour their food in no time. I wish that would work with raw food but I see it being more of a hassle.

Looks like a great idea though!

Lola wolfs down her food without breathing. I now use a Kong treat ball for Lola's evening meal. It is 8-sided and drops the kibble fairly slowly. I put in the kibble and then stuff the top with some cream cheese, so she has to work through that as well. It has slowed her down and I hear her chewing each of the pieces of kibble. In the morning I give her yogurt on her food along with all the vitamins & benadryl, so it has to be in the bowl. I remember seeing that bowl on here a few months ago. Someone wanted to use it but was put off by plastic.

Oh - just read Shada's post - guess you better not use rocks.

Actually, your DH isn't wrong - you can put a couple of big rocks in to slow them down. Some food companies talk about bigger kibble that forces them to chew rather than the smaller pieces that can be easier to "inhale". LOL The good news is that at least you've got an eater!

I had to respond to the rock in the bowl. I have a small lab around 50 pounds. She eats so fast, doesn't chew, just inhales and it is gone.
So I put a couple large rocks in her bowl. It worked. Then... about a year later, she came up to me after eating, was hyperventilating... I started rubbing her belly, talking to her calmly to calm her down...when BAM she shot out one of those rocks out of her mouth! She had been choking on the rock! I was shocked! Needless to say, the rocks are gone now. And this was a large rock, how she was able to get it in her throat is beyond me.

So she is back to eating fast. It drives me crazy.
