    Default Slow Feed Dog Bowls

    So, im looking into buying a slow feed dog bowl for Duke. This dog inhales and almost lost him cause of that a few days ago. @Vikinggirl sent a couple photos of these bowls (thank you) but had a question. There are a lot of different SFB out there. I was wondering if any members have them bowls, which brand, you satisfied etc etc. I waslooking at the Kong one....I would also want one that wont be moving all over the kitchen while my vacuum is eating out of it. Seen some odd ones like one looked like miniature mountains sticking out quite high too...figured for EB with their short flat nose might not be a good idea. Even have to think cause of their noses. Go figure cheers!!!!!!

    We did a lot of looking around and decided on this one. It has been very helpful in slowing Pippy down.

    I have the Neater Feeder system, so the bowls are slightly raised and it keeps them from destroying the walls w/their water spills. I haven't had to get a slow feeder YET... I'm interested to see what people are using thought.

    Bella used to inhale her food too! I just put a tennis ball or two in her bowl (since I have hundreds around) to make her work a little. It worked!!
    She eats very slow now I think she may even chew and taste her food now. Lol

    I had bought the same one that @oscarmayer mentioned for Jax. It worked for a bit but then he figured it out so I stopped using it and went back to the elevated bowls. What I do now which slows him down a bit is kind of smash the food down (raw) with a spoon so it isn't in chunks. He kind of has to work at getting it now.

    I saw those style and figured they still can eat fast but going in circles. ?

    He has a porcelain ball and he manages to take it out cause of the speed he eats. Little bugger.

    I would recommend the bowl with the most complicated maze inside you can find. These muffin heads learn so quickly, first time when Tank ate from sliwfeeder, it took him 5 min 30 sec, but in 3 days he finished in 2,5 min. But it is anyway better than 30 sec he inhaled his kibble from normal bowl. I used it long ago with kibble, with food he eats now it is not needed. I used this one.

    Lol. I actually thought she would get them out but never did, I guess she was so focused on on inhaling her food. Now I am sure she would get the balls out and play with them.

    Woah! That should slow them down, for sure. Only issue is it's plastic. But the possibility of a little chin acne is a small sacrifice for a way lessened chance of choking.

    Would the plastic bowl work for raw fed? I feel like it would be so messy.

    I suppose they could go in circles unless you put the bowl in a corner. It slowed Pippy down just enough and we haven't had any problems with it. Can't speak for how any other dogs might do.
