    Ruggles inhales his food also. Even when I feed him 1 kibble at a time he swallows it without chewing. @JAKEISGREAT will the feeding ball encourage him to chew?

They have slow feeding bowls too..but most of them were plastic and I really wanted to stick with stainless. It's important for you to do something because this could possibly lead to bloat and that;s very serious..in fact some dogs have died....good news is..its an easy and cheap fix!
    I got one of these for Roscoe too and it has REALLY slowed him down. He was gulping and choking to the point that I would have to fish wads of kibble out of his throat. I tried the water thing with him but then he just wouldn't eat (of course that's just my experience with it). The food ball was a life saver for me.

    Bubba does the same thing. Got a slow feed plastic bowl with compartments. It help some. It takes him maybe 30 sec longer than before1

    Alice...his kibble is sooo tiny I think it's hard for him to chew it! So that I doubt..but I do notice he takes about the same amount of time as my Dena dog...and she's a "normal" eater! I've tried the 1/2 now and wait for other 1/2..but he still scarfs what little bit he gets. The ball moves around and is constantly in his way so he has no choice!

    i often wonder about sarah to. she eats so fast sometimes and does choke sometimes though only very rarely. i looked at the special feeding bowls and they were plastic so didnt really want to do that so the ball maybe something i will try @JAKEISGREAT thanks. also i have heard that some kibble should not have water on it. something about some kibbles having citric acid in the kibble and not supposed to add water to it. just a thought not sure how true it is.
