You fill it with their kibble and then the dog can pick the toy up, roll it, shake it, etc... in order to get their food. Its fun for them, and it also slows them down quite a bit. So far I have only seen the toy being sold at PetSmart.|

For my 4 legged vacuum, I scatter the food across the bottom of her crate. She at least needs to move a bit to get it.
I have a buster cube and a ball that is a takeoff on it. I think I'll try one of those. Unfortunately, I know what I'll hear (bang, bang, rattle, bang, bang, rattle long past when it is empty.)

How much are you feeding her? She may need more food?

We used water and softened the food with our corgi who did the same. We would also scatter her food across the front porch forcing her to seek out one kibble at a time.
The bummer with her lack of chewing was that she required far more dental care and she twice got, I forget the correct term, inhalation pneumonia. She inhaled a kibble that got infected. Our vet recommended that when feeding from a bowl, that the dish was elevated off the ground so the dogs head was level with her back instead of down by her knees.
The benefit is she was an easy trainer with food reward and our toddler was never able to hit the floor from his high chair with food.

I also water down my puppies food to slow them down. YOu can also put large items in the bowl (clean rocks, LARGE so they can't swallow them).
They sell bowls to help with this
