Slow Feeding Bowl

The slowest slow feeder

According to extensive trials with Doug's dog Snoop

Beagle dog

Meet Snoop. Chief product tester at Scratch and beagle to our co-founder Doug. Ever since he was a young pup, Snoop has been a scoffer. He routinely demolishes a whole bowl of Scratch in as little as 45 seconds (followed by 15 seconds of gagging). Doug knew that a slow feeder could be the answer to Snoop’s overenthusiasm for kibble. So, he went on a mission to find the best prototype and bring it to Scratch customers Australia-wide.

After narrowing down his search to 10 models, he proceeded to run a series of highly scientific tests with Snoop to measure the ROE (rate of eating) and LODFSTBABG (level of difficulty for Snoop to be a big guts). After many days and many slow feeder bowls full of Scratch, the results were conclusive. This slow feeder changed Snoop’s average eating time from 45 seconds to 3 minutes. No gagging, vomiting, or watery burps were detected and food enthusiasm levels remained high.

So why do some dogs inhale their food? It can be for a number of reasons: boredom and lack of mental stimulation throughout the day, competitive eating with other pups in the home, or feelings of insecurity around when their next meal might arrive.
