I just ordered this bowl for Rusty. Since his rock surgery he practically inhales his food. No kidding, he is done in under a minute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I found this company started by a woman with a Doberman that also inhaled his food. I just got off the phone with her. Very nice lady. The idea is the obstacles should slow him down.

Here's a picture of it.





brake-fast bowl, Medium, blue
brake-fast? dog food bowl®s patent pending design prevents your dog from bolting their food. The simple obstructions make dogs slow down to eat.

Helps reduce the risk of Gastric Dilatation-Volvulus (GDV or 'Bloat')
Slower eating makes an animal feel more full and reduces instances of ?re-eating?
Veterinarian tested and recommended
Works with kibble or canned food
Elegant, no-tip shape
Durable, dishwasher plastic
5-cup Medium size (Large & Small coming soon)

I need to order one of those for Lightning--he inhales his food too. Was the lady pretty sure that the medium-sized bowl would be big enough for a basset?

I got one for Button awhile back. It works well to slow him down. Now at least I have time to fix Elmer's food after I set Button's food down! :lol:

It's kind of pitiful at first, him trying to eat around the posts, but he got used to it. I think he feels more satisfied when he takes more time.

My boy Gibbs too inhales his food once he goes over to his bowl. I've been contemplating getting one of these for my dogs, but Lily tends to chew on plastic bowls. <_<

The same effect can be achieved by placing several LARGE smooth stones (too big to swallow) in the bowl. It takes longer to eat around them.
