Minnesota Dog Feeding: Slow Bowl for Dogs That Eat too Fast

Updated on December 31, 2016

Blue is our Chocolate Lab

We did not name our dog. We received our dog from the Humane Society shelter and he was supposedly a rambunctious, free spirited dog. Initially owned and trained by an officer of the Peace, apparently the dog was a fail in terms of having a calm, well disciplined manner.

We have 10 acres and property and the dog is allowed to run. It loves it here. We have had the dog for several years and it is actually starting to get gray. It eats too fast, according to my hubby and after discussing it with my brother, he invested in sectioned bowl.

"This bowl should slow him down." he said.

We Have 2 Dogs

The first morning with this bowl took a little bit of coordination. I filled the sectioned bowl and set it in the spot where Blue normally eats. I told him to eat.

Then, I went back into the house and let our other dog eat in the stairwell on the landing. Blue normally whines to come back into the house, so I left him outside to eat with her new bowl. About 10 minutes later, he was yelping to come back in the house, so I let the other dog outside.

Blue came into the house and immediately went back outside with the other dog. Then, a few seconds later, was back at the door whining to come in.

The New Bowl

The new bowl was an epic fail.

First of all, when I went outside to check this new bowl, I noticed that he had emptied the bowl of all dog food. He had also turned it upside down.

Yes. Upside down.

How funny is that?

      Too bad the bowl didn't work out. They seem like they could be a good idea. Show some pic of your cute pups next time. I love seeing people's dogs and hearing about them! :)
