    Default How long does it take your bulldog to eat?

    Last night I timed Tate and Finn as they were eating their dinner. From start to finish, Finn took 3 minutes and Tate took 3.5 minutes. That's actually pretty "long" for them! In the past, they have eaten their meals in 1 minute or less. I use those slow-feed-balls in their bowls and that has slowed them down a bit.

    Anyone else time their bully's meal?

    Frank is probably about 2-3 minutes. He eats fast but will usually take a short break mid-way through his meal to make sure he isn't missing out on any food that we might have, the big piggy.

    I'll have to time it, but Banks has ALWAYS been so fast.. like she is going to miss getting something else if she keeps her head in the bowl too long. Cheli is similar, fast eater. Now, Nitchke was Mr. Pokey... took him so long to eat sometimes, he even walk away and come back - get a few nibbles and then walk awaya again. Mind you, Banks was sitting across the room waiting her turn

    They are both pretty fast. Sometimes though they will take their time. As with anything else a bully does, they do it their way!!

    Wally is SUPER fast, and I've been watering down his kibble… going to have to get a slow-feeder soon. Roxie takes her time, so Wally just watches her eat instead… Lol

    Harlea is about 3 or 4 minutes and Aria is a minute or less. Both use slow feed bowls.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Wow 3 or 4 minutes seems like a life time. Mine gobble it down in less than a minute. I probably should use one of those balls that slow them down but I was afraid they would have trouble eating with their smushy faces.

    Ruckus used to gulp his food down instantly to the point that I had to get him a slow feeder ball. Then out of the blue he started pacing himself and eating slowly. Now I give him his entire portion of food for the day in the morning and he finishes the last of it late at night.
