Serious question: How could you slow him down?

That's actually a good idea! Or I could just sprinkle the kibble on the ground.


I'll have to get video of him drinking....it's a atrocious! He submerges his whole snout underwater, it makes the biggest mess.

A friend puts a softball in her dogs bowl to slow him down. He has to eat around it.

The softball idea is a good one..they also sell bowls for dogs with dividers specifically to slow them down and avoid bloat/gastric torsion. I had a dog die from that when I was a teenager ..it is a terrible way to go. Slow that boy down!

He is gorgeous , good luck and many happy years with him
