I have an elevated bowl and water set...also just ordered and received a go-slow bowl..which only added about 1. 2 minutes onto the 1.2 minutes it takes Roxy to eat so not sure that was a great purchase.
^ -- that is like the bowl I got Roxy -- we only added maybe a minute of time onto the eating. Did that bowl work wonders for you?
it is at top maybe 2.5 minutes to eat 1 cup of kibble even out of that slow-go bowl the ONLY slow down eating trick I have found is putting the meal in one of the busy buddy mushrooms...and I don't like to do that at every meal so that is usually her evening meal she gets that in so that we can eat our supper and I can clean up in about the time she gets done banging all the food out of it.
Abby spends most of her time chasing her stainless steel bowl around the kitchen; so I've just ordered a custom bowl from a local potter. If you're trying to make your puppy slow down, you could add water to the food. I have a chihuahua that my kids call 'the piranha', we slowed him down by making his food the equivalent of soup. It also ensures he's getting enough water, which is good, since we live in a place that gets over 100 F.
I used to use the stainless ones with the rubber bottom Mrs. K. posted. Those are really the best of all I've tried over the years.
When I switched to raw, I would hand out food and they ate it in the grass. For days when I fed organ meat, I used the galvanized pet feeder pan from Wal-Mart. It's really wide and shallow so you can put a chicken quarter and a tub of livers in there together (12.5'' H x 2.13'' W x 12.5'' D), and costs less than $4 so easily replaced.
Right now I'm back to kibble for training purposes, and I'm just using my hands and a treat bag.
Sorry I have no photos - I have a plastic, elevated food/water set that up about 8" and I drop the stainless steel bowls in them. If the bowl is dirty my large 8" wide Fiestaware bowl fits perfectly. I feed raw and everything goes in the dishwasher.
Thanks guys. It's not the speed that I'm worried about, as he doesn't eat much. I was thinking maybe he just can't angle his head correctly to get to the food, since he stands up and eats (metro always laid down to eat) so maybe ill try an elevated bowl set?
