I don't think our "Sadie girl" is any different than most puppies or dogs. EVERY TIME a dog eats it seems like they believe it's their last supper. The food is not enjoyed, but rather inhaled. We have been feeding Sadie two cups, three times a day. She was devouring 2 cups of food in about 60 seconds. Darren and I spoke to our trainer about it and she suggested the Buster's Dog Maze Bowl. We were trying to avoid canine bloat, which can kill a dog. Bloat is a condition that usually develops suddenly, usually in a healthy, active dog. The dog may have just eaten a large meal, exercised vigorously before or after eating, or drank a large amount of water immediately after eating. We also preferred that Sadie TASTE her high end food before ingesting it. Here is Buster's Dog Maze Bowl.
It really does resemble a maze. Just envision a small insect walking through this maze bowl. The benefits of this bowl 1. Dogs love a challenge. This bowl definitely challenges them. 2. This bowl stimulates their senses and helps promote prolonged eating. 3. Dishwasher safe. I use the bowl for Sadie's breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but I also tend to use it for those times I give her blueberries, carrots, or sliced apples too!
We paid $22.00 on Amazon!Now, it takes Sadie about 15-17 minutes to eat her food. I tried to record her start to finish eating, from the maze bowl, but I ran out of memory on my iPhone.
