  • The Alfie Family pet Slow Eating Canine Dish’s special revolutionary design is an outcome of reflection and even study. The design was substantiated of the observation of dogs demolishing their food every single time as if they came right from a scarcity. This ‘vacuuming’ of food may lead to a myriad of physical and also behavioral problems including over-eating, vomiting and also coprophagy.
  • The layout in the facility of the bowl has 3 peaks, which act as a blockage to hinder your canine from making a clean sweep of the food. The very same obstruction also makes it harder for pet dogs to get their muzzles near sufficient to the base of the bowl, and even hence avoiding them from “inhaling” their food.
  • Even your dog doesn’t consume fast, The Alfie Family pet Slow Consuming Canine Dish can be used as a regular dish. Actually, the dish could aid/enhance your pet dog’s body’s capacity to assimilate the nutrients from his food.
  • NON-SLIP: The Alfie Animal Slow Eating Canine Dish has non-slip pad around the side of the bowl. Save your canine the indignity of having his dish move lengthwise when he eats. With its weight as well as around-the-edge non-slip pad, your pet could feed easily.

Many dogs have an unhealthy habit of eating too fast. They love to lap up all the food in a swift, sweeping motion and gobble down or “inhale” their food like a vacuum cleaner. This way, they end up swallowing everything without much chewing, thus leading to indigestion. The Alfie Pet Slow Eating Dog Bowl solves the following problems.

“My dog is overweight” – Slower eating makes your dog feel full faster, thus avoiding instances of re-eating. As a result this bowl can also be a useful weight management tool.

“My dog vomits after eating” – Dogs that eat too fast may regurgitate as a result. By slowing down the dog’s eating process to a healthy and moderate pace, this problem can be eradicated.

“My dog eats his poop” – Through moderating your dog’s eating pace, the bowl prevents coprophagy. Coprophagy (the act of feeding on excretion) has many possible causes. Poor digestion due to fast eating may in turn result in poor nutrient absorption. Instinctively, dogs may then try to reprocess it by eating up his nutrient rich poop. However owners who have this problem should consult a professional to rule out coprophagy as a behavioral problem.

MAKE THE SWITCH: If your dog has problems switching over from his existing feeding bowl, we suggest adding bits of his favorite treats into the food to encourage him to eat from the new bowl. Once your dog is used to eating from his new bowl, you can resume his normal diet and leave the treats out gradually.
