I have heard people put a large rock or even a big coffe cup in the food bowl. They say it slows them down when eating. I can't say for sure because Molly has empty stomach syndrome & needs to eat close to bedtime, so we feed both of ours three diveded meals a day. I am sure someone who has a fast eating lab will give you their tips.
a couple of bowls on the market
Break Fast bowl
PS-- I'm still open for some suggestions!
I use something like the breakfast bowl but I found one at Petsmart for $5 and the "walls" were different than the breakfast. I seemed to work better, and I gave my $25.00 breakfast to the neighbors ! I found the bowls dont work at all with my JRT's so I started watering their food down and now they don't choke on the food either.
I use anti bloat stainless bowls that look just like sombreros. I feed 2x a day and add water to the food. In addition at each meal I break up the puppy's meal into 2 parts. Makes him slow down a little.
My older dog eats at a pretty normal pace - but Blaise acts like his last meal was weeks ago every time I feed him.
Since I lost a dog to bloat last September, I am pretty vigilant about feeding.
