There is no question that many dogs simply vacuum up their meals without ever using a taste bud. Hasty eating can in fact lead to digestion disorders such as bloat and food regurgitation.
Tester Dani got to try out the Outward Hound Fun Feeder in the Flower design, which is designed to slow down the rate a dog eats.
According to the manufacturers, the bowls, that come in various designs and two sizes, are inspired by nature to make feeding fun and stimulate dogs by encouraging them to chase and forage for their food. Further, they quickly learn to “chase” their food through the maze of ridges and valleys, making dinnertime feel more like a hunt.
For the Reigning Cats and Dogs Blog test, Dani’s dad gave her her evening meal in an ordinary bowl and timed her. She’d eaten every last crumb in 3 minutes 10 seconds.
The next time she meal was placed in the Flower Fun Feeder, and dinner time lasted 10 minutes.
If you have a dog that eats too quickly, this is a Must Have Product. It can also be cleaned on the top shelf of the dishwasher and is both BPA and PVC free.
Product tester for this product is Dani.
The Outward Hound Fun Feeders get the Must Have Stamp of Approval.
