    Default Paisley eats TOO FAST

    I'm a little concerned because she gobbles her food down super fast. I started today leaving her on the leash and pulling her back a little to slow her down. But she will gobble super fast and go after Zeus' food.
    I feed her according to her weight so I know she is getting plenty.
    Any reason why you guys think she would be doing that?

    Some dogs eat fast. You can get special bowls that slow them down. I know some of our members use them. One of the breeders of another dog I owned recommended large, smooth river rocks in the bowl that would make him slow down. From what I have heard on here though, they would probably eat the rocks too!

    filling an emptiness we didn't even know we had."

    I add water to the kibble, which slows Remi down immensely Also I do a lot of hand feeding and making him work for every single handful of food, making him do tricks. It's fun as well and helps you bond.

    That's great!!! Thank you! I've had to start feeding them separately to avoid her eating his food.
    Thank you so much

    Np. I wish I could take credit for those techniques, but they are all things I learned here on EBN! Hand feeding has really increased Remi's "respect" for me as alpha.

    @My kids have 4 paws. I bought a slow feeder for Abram before he came home. He eats slowly anyhow and hates this bowl. I f you pm me your address I'll send it to you. It's looking for a good home.
    If tears could build a staircase and happy memories a lane, I could walk right up to Heaven and bring you home again!

    My Tuni used to eat very fast and actually ended up aspirating from it. So, now I put her food on a cookie sheet and it slows her down SO much! It's a pain in the butt to clean, but it's worth it

    Thanks, I think Remi loves it as much as i do. My husband is impressed that if I ask Remi to stay while food is in his bowl, he will pretty much just stay indefinitely until I say "Ok."

    It's pretty awesome :/

    This worked as well for us. We ONLY stopped because we put angel eyes in his kibble with water and it made the ball super gross and messy.
