This product works!

We have 3 Labs -- one who inhales her food to the point where she chokes, coughs and gags, another who "wolfs it down" and a 14-year old who eats slowly. We bought 2 bowls. The two chowhounds now have slowed to the point where they are just finishing their meal at the same time the goldie-oldie is finishing hers from a regular dish. No more running to steal food out of another's bowl! You can actually hear all 3 dogs chewing their kibble. Remarkable!!
Its a great bowl, but the noskid does not work. The bowl needs to be bottom weighted. My puppy first thing she did was scoot the bowl across the floor , then proceed to tip it over to get the last of the food! We needed something so this works for now.
Does a good job slowing the little piggy dog down
I have an English bulldog that inhales food and sounds Iike a little.piggy. This bowl slows her down about 40% so she won't get the bloat. She still sound like a little piggy. Just beware this does Not help prevent stinky dog farts.
JW Pet Skid Stop Slow Feed Bowl

Love this bowl! Eating out of a regular bowl, my dog consumes his food in about 20 seconds! With this bowl, it takes him 2 or 3 minutes.
Slow Feed Bowl for Fast Eaters!
from Temple City, Ca.09/17/2013
One little rescue eats so fast she often throws up. This slow feeder bowl resolved my problem! By eating slower it allows her to better digest her food. Highly recommend this for pets that eat too fast.
My cat couldn't get her face in to get the food out. Also, it skid all over the floor. Maybe it's not meant for cats, but doesn't say that any place. Worst purchase ever. It's not a slow feed bowl, it a no feed bowl.
Stops them in their tracks
by PWD breeder/trainer/groom
I purchased this bowl as a replacement for one that the Doberman chewed. He used to inhale his food. This stopped him in his tracks. As a PWD breeder/trainer, I decided to try it out on a 10 mos old Portie that is at my house to be conditioned for conformation shows. She could eat her food in less than a minute. Now she takes her time and seems more satisfied when the bowl is empty. Now she looks for toys instead of more food. I only wish they came in stainless steel.
Good bowl for wide muzzle breed
My 4 month old puppy Spirit, eats too fast, so I put 1/2 cup of food in it and it takes her a little bit longer to eat it. I think this design would be better suited for a wider muzzle breed, but I can use it for my older dogs as well.
Great Bowl for Gulpers!
Our (big) Lab was a gulper. He ended up with a twisted stomach, but survived. Our vet recommended getting a bowl that he had to work to get the food, even though she had stapled his stomach so it would not twist again. She said he was still getting air, when he ate. This bowl is great. We feed him less, more often and he has to work to get it. It does slide a little but he is pushing it pretty hard.
Still Skids & Does Not Slow Down My Dog
from Columbia, KY03/13/2013
Had to resort to holding my foot against this 'non-skid' bowl to stop the slide. Also had to water down dog's food to slow down her eating. Food turns to mush which she finds more difficult to get out of this bowl.

I've bought them and haven't received them yet, but I know they have to be perfect; except the obvious, you don't have any SMALL....That's what I need, I have "2" Chihuahua Mix's. Silly buying all that much BOWL for little rascals as they are, but they have a problem of eating fast, both rescue dogs. Can you help us out here?

Great price, have seen the same thing go for just under $20.00.
This worked great!
Slowed them right down!
from Sacramento, CA04/23/2014
We have two dogs and they woof everything down as fast as they can for fear the other might get something else. Never happens, but they never give up. These bowls have done the trick of slowing them down so they can taste and enjoy their meal! Thanks for a great bowl!!!
We love this dish!

My food 'hound' can eat his entire meal in about 2 minutes using a regular stainless bowl. This slows him down a lot which is better for his digestion.
great slow feed dish
from spartanburg sc03/23/2012
I have one of the more expensive slow feed dishes and it really didn't slow down my doxie. This bowl is awesome. No it is not nonskid however you can put a nonskid placemat done problem solved.
when looking for a slow feed bowl for our 3.5 yro Choc. Lab I came accross this one. after reading the description I decided to buy it. the old saying you get what you pay for. well when it arrived to my surprise it was WAY to small for a 90lb lab. So i have it to my brother for his puppy. they should at least put the size of dog that the bowl is for on the description.

My rescued puppy was a chow hound and would practiclaly inhale his food. The bowl has slowed him down significantly!
Rudy is a rescue who gulped his food so quickly that it caused digestive problems. We tried several types of slow feeder bowls with mixed results. This bowl works the best by far. It definitely slows his eating and has improved his manners.
