Speedy Gonzales is what we call Bailie at mealtime. Coming from a litter of fourteen, she has always been an Olympic level speed eater. Mom has slowed her down considerably, and she does chew her food these days, but she is always much faster than the rest of us. Cat bro Bert is also a speed eating champion, but he got a slow feeder a few years ago which slowed him way down. Let’s see how a slow feeding bowl works out for Bailie.
My GBGV Life received one Outward Hound® Fun Feeder Slo Bowl™ from Chewy.com to review as a member of the Chewy Influencer Program. My GBGV Life did not receive any monetary compensation for this review, and receives no additional benefits for barking about the product or the company. The opinions in this review are the honest opinions of My GBGV Life.
Speed eating is not a healthy habit for dogs, cats, or humans. Eating slowly is better for digestion, and in dogs, can help prevent cases of bloat. As a #ChewyInfluencer, I received the Outward Hound® Fun Feeder Slo Bowl™ for Bailie to test drive. I chose the flower design in purple since she is our Purple Girl.
The Slo Feeder will hold up to four cups of food, making it suitable for dogs of all sizes. If your pup prefers wet food, or a combination of wet and dry like Bailie, this feeder will hold both. We even poured Bailie’s liquid supplement right into the feeder, and she licked it out. Some of our favorite features are:
- The ability to use the feeder for wet or dry food
- It is made from food safe materials
- There is no lead or Phthalate
- Free of BPA and PVC
- Non slip base of the feeder
Mom isn’t into washing dishes, so being dishwasher safe is a good thing at our house. The Slo Bowl does have to go on the top rack, but if your rack is adjustable like ours, it fits just fine.
Bailie, being a true
French food hound, dug right into her meal in the Slo Feeder. She moved from side to side, licking in between the dividers with her tongue, to get each piece of food out of the bowl.
Mom’s favorite feature of all, is the no slip base. Bailie really had to work at getting the food out of the crevasses in the bowl, but despite all the work, the bowl did not budge at all! With her normal bowl, she moves across the kitchen while eating.
What do we find to be most amazing about the Slo Bowl? The package says your dog will eat ten times slower, yeah, right! Guess what, that might actually be accurate! Little Madison, the most pokey eater of all, was done way before Speedy Gonzales! We had to actually restrain her from disturbing Bailie. The end result is the bowl seriously works to slow eating! We would recommend it to anyone looking to slow down their dog at mealtime. Bailie not only ate everything but one crumb, she licked it so clean, it looks like new!
Let’s not forget the free cat toy we got with the bowl. Cat bro Bert always looks forward to our Chewy deliveries so he can have a new box to play in. #Chewyboxlove We also ordered the food Bailie was eating from Chewy.com. Chewy has it all, and they are an amazing company!
