Hand feeding is good for trust building too. I hand fed mine for at least a month or so. now, if I need to take his food bowl or something from him for whatever reason its not an issue. it may not be only bc of the hand feeding but I think it probably helped.

I don't have an issue with fast eating. thankfully. I thought I did when he was a little younger so I hand fed...but I want the Kong wobbler just so he'll have a super fun new toy. Hehe.

My 6 year old Brooks still eats every meal as if he hasn't been fed in weeks.
I suppose the good thing is, I don't have to worry about him being a picky eater

I would say hand feeding or a food dispensing toy such as the Kong Wobble is your best bet. We do the mini muffin pan thing a lot too but she still inhales the food with the muffin pan

Wow it's been a year already since I posted this! Thinking of switching to another food such as Acana, the kibble size is bigger than Fromms.

Curious if there are any new solutions to the dog inhaling food problem? Even if I hand feed or put something in the bowl to slow it down, she doesn't chew!

what i do is spread it all over the floor. it looks like a big mess but at-least he's taking a while for it to go down into his stomach. my pup has a sensitive stomach so when he would eat really fast he always throws up. In my car we have wipes and bags because he'll throw up his food if he just ate so we try not to feed him right before going into the car

I'm also concerned about Max. It takes him less than a minute to eat a cup and a half of his EVO Red meat. He burps a lot, and tonight for the first time it seemed as if he had hiccups.

I'm terrified of bloat. Absolutely terrified.

My puppy does the same thing! He eats Acana and does not chew. Gone in less the 30 seconds. We have tried the divided dish and it helps slow him down but does not help with the chewing. Joey is now almost 4 months old and this has been a concern for us. We feed him away from our Lab ( Joey can out eat him).
We have just started trying 3 dishes.....the first one has hardly anything in it. When he is calm and relaxed I hand feed the second dish. Again after he is calm he then gets the third (he can see them on the counter) the third has most of the food in it. I keep saying " calm" when he's eating if he's not I take it away. We just started this so still in the testing stages, I do however think that he is chewing most of his food. Oh yes, the third bowl is the divided one.

Cooper doesn't eat too fast but putting his food in a Kong does slow him down a lot. Have you tried that? If you wet the food down a little while before you feed it, then it gets sticky and harder to get out. We will do this if we want to keep him busy for a while....but only about 1/2-1/3 of his food fits in at a time.
