Roscoe is the only one who chews kibble, by kibble! Takes him forever to eat 1cup of food! We joke and say that is why he is the skinniest beagle of the three!

Cole, forget about it, from day one when he was only 6 weeks old, he inhaled his food!

Gino does the same as Cole, when they are eating sometimes I yell "Breathe! Breathe!"

I am cosidering getting two of those special bowls to slow them down a bit, can't be good for digestion!!

Starla does the EXACT same thing. We finally figured out that she is the leaving the triangle shaped bits in the bowl and on the floor but eating everything else. I'm not sure what flavor those triangle kibbles are, but they must be pretty nasty for a pig like her to not eat them.

Here is a pic of one type of bowl that helps slow them down. The idea is they can't get at all of their kibble so quickly b/c they have to work around the plastic bumps in the bowl.

Instead of using the 'slow down' bowls, we took a heavy bowl that was a bit smaller than her dish and put it in there upside down. This forces the food into a smaller area, which makes her slow down...instead of inhaling her food, she would lick it up really fast. It probably doubled the time it took her to eat.

Now we hand feed at least the first half of the bowl as a training tool (working on listening, tricks, etc) and then she gets the rest. We found this method a huge help for more than just slowing her down...she listens a heck of a lot better now too!
