    DefaultAny other fast eaters out there?

    So, I always knew my dogs ate quickly, but I never knew they ate this fast, lol. I just fed the dogs and seeing as I'm obviously bored out of my mind, I decided to time how long it would take them to eat. Holden inhales 2 cups of food in 50 seconds, and Isabelle eats her 1 1/2 cups in 56 seconds. Anyone else have turbo eaters?

    hahahahah I timed Buck one time. He ate 1.5 cups in 35 seconds. This was when he was younger (8weeks - 4-5months). I slowed him down by hand feeding. Since he turned 6-7 months he eats 1.5 cups in about 50 seconds or so.

    It's insane how he inhales the food!

    Rush is a fast eater but Boo is a turbo eater. We bought her a brake-fast bowl to slow her down and it helps. It usually takes them about 1 minuite to eat their 1 c. food at each meal.

    Brigetta is a fast eater. I have to put her busy buddy in the dish to slow her down!

    Princess eats so fast that I can't even watch anymore. It scares me to death.
    I don't think she chews the first bite.

    I often wonder the same thing, lol.

    Brigettas Mom~ What's a busy buddy and how much longer does it take your dog to eat with it?

    For those with fast eaters : Try putting something in their bowl that they have to eat around. I use a nylabone and it's really helped with Frankie. Tucker, on the other hand, is the slowest eater in the world. Takes him a good 5-10 minutes to finish 1-1/2 cups.

    I tried this and it never worked. Sami just picked up the offending object (nylabone, tennis ball, can of peas) and dumped it out of her bowl! She wasn't about to let anything get in her way : I bought the brake-fast bowl (http://www.brake-fast.net/) that rushpuppy mentioned above. That has made the biggest difference in slowing her down. It takes her at least a couple of minutes now vs. 40 seconds before.

    My Zena girl is that way. We have found rubbing her tummy while she eats slows her wayyyyyyyyy down. Guess she's trying to decide "lovin or food"!

    I've tried putting stuff in her bowl, it doesn't work for her either. The breakfast bowl is plastic and she is alergic to plastic.
