For Rocco, eating is like a race to the finish. He's finished eating in a matter of seconds and then looks up at me asking for more!
So when I saw the GREEN interactive feeder by Northmate from The Company of Animals I was intrigued. It looks a bit like tufts of grass, but it's made of hard plastic (without phthalates). It's designed to prolong eating time, which helps reduce the risk of gulping and bloat.
And, because of its special design, it turns your dog's meal into a challenging game.
We were sold. But the original feeder seemed a bit large for a small dog like Rocco. So when GREEN came out with a mini feeder we were super excited to try it out!
The mini is about half the size of the original GREEN and the "tufts" of grass are shorter too, making it a little easier for small dogs, puppies and flat-nosed breeds to maneuver. It still provides the same meal-time challenge, but the smaller size is better suited for a small dog like Rocco.
So how much longer did it take Rocco to eat?
The results of our time trials showed a pretty significant slowdown with the GREEN feeder. Maybe not as much time as the pup displays in the video below, but it did present a challenge for Rocco and it kept him from inhaling his food! We would definitely recommend the GREEN for some challenging mealtime fun and to slow down a dog who gulps their food!
