We wanted to tell you about our cool new bowls we received from Long Tail Pet Products.
They are called the DogPause Bowls:
Oh boy, a pretty red one.....
Hmmmm, I think I like the blue one best, Snickers can have the red one since we get to keep both bowls.
The DogPause Bowls help to slow down fast eaters like me Butchy! Yep, I can truly say it has worked for me. Snickers doesn't eat quite as fast as me, but it has slowed her down too.
The DogPause dog bowl works to slow down the pace of eating and aid with portion control in the following ways:
- Divides the bowl into 4 feeding zones
- Each feeding zone is 1/2 cup in capacity and designed to "block" the dog from putting his full snout into the bowl; this slows down eating pace as your dog needs to use his tongue for each bite
- After your dog finishes each zone, he must re-position himself for the next zone
- The bowl is designed to slide a little on the floor, further slowing down the dog as he needs to re-position for each bite
I must add that Snickers & I both have to squirm around to get into all four sections. Mama tried to time me Butchy while I was eating out of the bowl the first few times. When eating out of my old bowl, it takes me about 60 seconds to eat my food. With my new DogPause bowl, it takes about 5 minutes, no kidding!! Mama was thrilled that the new bowl made us eat slower.
The only thing she found that she did not like about the bowls, is that when we get our pumpkin & yogurt on top of our kibble for lunch time feeding, errrrr, ummmmmm, our moustaches get just covered with orange pumpkin, hehehehe! Snickers absolutely refused to let Mama post a picture of her with an orange moustache, sorry. So for wet foods, the bowls might not work as neatly for longer hair faced dogs. Shorthair breeds should have no problems eating wet foods in these bowls.
So if your dog snarfs food down in no time flat, these are the bowls for you!
