What is a slow feeder dog bowl and how can it help your dog?
Slow feeders prevent your dog from gulping down food too fast.
When dogs eat their food too fast, they can experience a condition called bloat.
Canine bloat or twisted stomach occurs when a dog eats too quickly and gulps down a lot of air. The air turns into gas in the stomach and causes the abdomen to swell, putting pressure on the heart, lungs and other organs.
By slowing down our dogs when they eat, the Rock’N Bowl can literally be a life-saver!
Puppies are notorious for gulping down their food as quick as possible. While it may be cute, often the puppy eats more than he should, and since he may not know when he’s full, the excess kibble in his belly continues to expand more and more…often the result is puppy-vomit and carpet cleaners.
But it’s not just a slow feeder…it’s also a unique way to create mental stimulation and provide environmental enrichment that can help the overall well being of your dog.
What seems like just another slow feeder, is actually a unique puzzle feeder that will engage your dog’s creativity and help them build problem solving skills.
You’re building your dog’s confidence!
By turning a simple, routine part of your day into a rewarding challenge, we actually help our dog become a more fulfilled, engaged and stimulated companion.

But wait, there’s more!
I told you the company was Paw5, right?!

Paw-eye coordination, watching the treats fall out of the feeder.
