Raven is a VERY fast eater. That has presented a few problems for us. As we have more then 1 dog, because she finishes first, she would wander over to the other dogs and try to steal their food, so she has been fed in her crate since we’ve had her. It can also lead to serious health issues, like bloat. Now, we could have just continued to feed her in her crate, but I decided to try one of those bowls that has impressions in it, a slow feeder, forcing her to eat around them. Here is a video of that. If you are curious, the bowl we got is the Large Martha Stewart version from PetSmart.

I had no idea this would slow her down so much. I didn’t subject you to the whole thing, but I love it!

    • My Gracie would have had that gone in half the time. She is a SUPER fast eater. I got some plastic ice cube trays. I divide her meal into 2 or 3 portions and wait a few minutes between. It has made a difference.

  4. My adopted dog Spaz was doing the same thing when I got him. Since he only eats 1 cup b/c hes a pug mix the bowls were to big. He eats out of the Kong Wobbler that he knocks over to get his food.
