Does he eat to fast? *video*

I think Lincoln eats way to fast but maybe my judgment isnt the best because my last 2 days would just pick at their kibble through out the day and could careless about food.

Looks about right to me. He is a hungry boy! Max is a quick eater also.

He eats faster than my guys--but my lab and jrt are dainty little eaters. Wagner eats what I would consider normal. *I* personally don't think he eats so fast that it would freak me out though.

How much food was in there ? If about a cup, he eats like my Lab does and a bit faster than my Golden. With no water (which we have not done for years), Spip the Lab is done eating before you have time to blink.

Your video made me curious. I timed Max eating tonight. He ate 1.5 cups of dry kibble in about 1 minute 40 seconds. He ate it steadily but not overly fast. More methodical than anything else.

Mine eats MUCH faster when his kibble is dry. So fast he chokes. There was about 3/4 a cup in there. The other 3/4 I saved to use in the muffin tin for comparison.

I timed both today with one cup of kibble mixed in with one cup of water (no soaking ahead of time so that the kibble is mushy, just a mix) which is their regular supper. Spip took 1'25", Flem 2'. While I would rather them be a bit slower, it does not seem to be a problem; a burp here and there but nothing major. I would not worry a lot about Linc's speed but, of course, if you find an easy way to slow him a little, it could do no harm either.

What is the dry mixed with? And it seems a little rushed to me but mine is a slow eater.

From my perspective the time he takes to eat seems normal to me. Fiona eats one cup in 60 seconds flat. Never timed Tucker but I believe he was faster than that.
