Question Speed eater?

Duncan eats every meal like it'll be his last.Does anyone else have this problem??The vet says he's just a hungry little puppy,and being he's growing so fast we'll be cutting out his midday meal very shortly.He is always looking for food and he is healthy and growing just fine.
He really devours his food in less than a minute flat.I cant imagine its healthy,but then again this is my first time owning a dog.I was just wondering if anyone else here has a fiend when it comes to food.

Dot, my guys also eat VERY fast- it is almost comical Afterwards they sometime cough like they got whole pieces in their throats. Logan is the youngest (8 months) and the worst. At just 4 years old, Lily seems to be slowing down a little & taking some time to savor the food a bit. I think it just might be a "young puppy: thing. As long as he is healthy = he must be getting the food in.

Thanks Laurie! I just needed to hear that someone else had this happening as well. I was starting to worry that he had a tapeworm or something.Thank God,that's not the case.

Dot, it is a little frightening to see, Logan eats so fast that the food flys all over the place, like a pie eating contest or something. And he is growing and as healthy as can be - so I guess it is just Duncan's personality.

Havee used to eat very quickly. He's getting a little more picky lately and slower too. It may be his baby teeth loosening that is causing the slowdown! He's 61/2 mos old now.

Laurie--Logan's food flying all over the place as he eats--very funny picture I have in my mind

The things these guys do are so funny!

We must be the lucky ones compared to all those picky eaters out there. All I have to do is say the word Breakfast and both boys come running. Monte is the worst, donít take too long in preparation or her will let you know about it. He use to bark at me while I was getting his food ready, we stopped that real quick, now I he just starts running around in circles being his impatient little self.

Laurie, you have to make a video of the pie eating contest, that is so funny

You know I probably should do a movie. Logan will sit in my lap at 3:30PM & look up at me and start whining every so often, while Lily sits in the kitchen by the door where the food is kept - doing what we call boofing - a little bark and boof together. The second I say the word supper they fly to their bowls waiting!! They are a sight!

LOL Kind of like Riley throwing his water bowl at me when him or Monte drink it all and want more.. Very demanding pups we have.

I'm so jelous of all these eating stories?!?! Beamer is such a weak eater. Very slow and not very interested in eating his food, unless something good is added. Hmmmmm.... I would just once like to see him devour a bowl of kibble.. ughhhh..

His Wellness bag of kibble is almost done (most has prolly been tossed in the trash..) .. any suggestions on another brand that might make him more happy??
