    DefaultPup eats food like he hasn't eaten in days!

    I swear it's amazing , I calm him down as much as possible and then he tears through his food like there is no tomorrow. I know this is common , but does it get better?

    Nope. lol.

    Tessa inhales her food so I spread it out on a tray. Some people put rocks on t he bowl, or you can buy special bowls, but I find the tray works.

    Erns is the opposite. He eats each bit of kibble and takes twice as long as her so I have to stand there while he eats or she will hoover down his too.

    Nope, lol.

    I put a ball in his bowl to slow him down, some people use a big rock. I water his kibble down a bit as well, not soaked just so it's "swimming" a bit. Both things seem to help out.

    I agree, my Maxx will be a year old on Thursday and he has inhaled his food since the day I brought him home. His breeder said he was the piggy of the litter from day one. I also put a ball in his food and add water, I bought a "brake fast" bowl but it just frustrated him and he would turn it over to get to the food faster. That got old real fast! (He isn't "smart" enough to take the ball out but he is smart enough to dump the food out of the other bowl! ) I haven't tried the tray idea but it sounds like a good idea also.

    He is too cute! FYI - I have found that Maxx was so very easy to train being so food motivated. I swear he would dribble a basketball for a cookie or an apple slice!
