Okay I went through my house and found two other bowls. The far left one is the current plastic bowl. The middle one is a Medium/large size dog bowl and the far right one is massive and its meant for a Great Dane..possibly a horse. Should I use the far right one instead of the plastic one then?

I don't know about bloat... but I just bought one of these for our connie.... and it has slowed her down (3 days so far) I put kibble or raw in it and it does take her longer to eat.... thats all i know, they do make the brake fast bowls in metal... and a larger bowl... well that has never slowed any of mine down

IMO, since you already have it, it surely couldn't hurt to try it. May or may not fix the fast eating, but what do you have to lose in trying?

I have been using the brake-fast bowl with MacKenzie for 3 years. Has slowed her down tremendously. I have found if I put her food scattered flat or in a bigger bowl, it just encourages her to race to eat her food.

The brake-fast bowl still looks brand new, no rough edges at all.

I have found using a bundt cake pan slows my inhaler down!

I have been using this brake fast type bowl for 6 months now. I have learned its made from melamine and I dont know how comfortable I feel using it now. Its starting to wear down (the colouring) and im worried about it chipping and flaking off. So I think I will go back to the metal bowl until I can find a metal brake fast type bowl...

The bunt tin is a clever idea I will look into that one as well

I feed mostly via training: ie. hiding kibble throughout the house to engage that nose. In summer I throw cup fulls into the grass outside.

I have used a muffin tin in the past. Just spread the food over the cups.

Soaking kibble has not been found to reduce bloat, in fact there is some thoughts it can increase the risk.

Anything to slow a dog down is a good idea, including leaving the kibble dry.

I like the muffin tin idea. Does it matter if the muffin tin has a dark grey/black finish? I find soaking kibble slows him down a tad bit when eating and he chokes less when the kibble is floating in a bit of water. Last year he inhaled his kibble dry and choked on a piece scare the sh*t out of me.

This is what mine looks like I think its a non stick coating http://www.target.com/p/chefmate-muf...p/-/A-11010245

When I fed kibble, I used a 12 cup muffin tin. I found it to work better than the dog bowl varieties, plus it is cheaper, and can be used for other things when you are done using it as a dog dish.
