I’ve seen a rise in”slow feeder” designs recently and with each new iteration, they seem to become less and less like traditional bowls (with a random “bump” in the middle) and more like puzzles that just happen to have your dog’s daily meals in them. The Slo-Bowl from Kyjen is the most recent example of this interactive-game-inspired slow feeder design — read more about it below!
The Slo-Bowl is a natural, healthy, and playful solution for dogs that gobble their kibble too quickly. The nature-inspired designs promote natural eating habits by requiring dogs to forage for their feasts. With these prolonged feeding times, Slo-Bowls reduce the risks for bloat, regurgitation, and canine obesity. Dogs quickly learn to “chase” their food through a maze of ridges and valleys, making dinnertime feel more like a hunt. And, because the Slo-Bowl “rewards” their play with bits of food, furry friends become more and more engaged as the meal goes on.
