I'm thinking of getting one of these!

I bet it would help reduce bloat in gulpers...definitely address eating too fast!

Wouldn't they be swallowing more air with that thing?

I ordered this for Havoc. He sometimes isn't interested in his dinner. Thanks Ms. Vette.

That's so cool. I've seen these in the specialty pet stores I go to, but have never known what they were for

Let me know how it goes!
A trainer over there we consult with recommended always feeding in some sort of hide-toy or the like, as dogs were actually evolved to be scavengers and feeding in a bowl does not stimulate their senses enough!
This would be the type thing she'd recommend.

Swallowing air, I don't think so as they are eating so much slower.

Wouldn't the smarties pick it up and dump the kibble on the floor? Or do you put the whole thing in their bowl?
I think WD would pick it up an shake it.

My last GSD, Cassie, loved her Buster cube for feeding. She had to roll it around to get the food out and you could adjust the inside so it didn't come out fast. She also liked a couple of the rubber ones, different from a Kong, that she had to pick up and drop and only a few pieces would fall out. Slowed her down a lot. I'm going to introduce Zoey to them soon.

Puppy doesn't like the Buster Cube. She likes the Kong wobbler, this other ball you had to roll around to get the kibble to fall out of a tube, and the nina olsen toys.

That said, I WANT THIS TOY. It looks so cool!
