We recently wrote about the Healthy Pet Simply Feed automatic pet feeder from PetSafe, and now that Rocco's had a chance to give it a test run, he wants to show you how it works.

The nice folks at PetSafe gave us one to review and they're also providing one for our giveaway today, so you have the chance to win this fully programmable feeder that will allow you to schedule feeding times (up to 12 a day) and the amount of food you feed at each meal (from 1/8 cup to up to 4 cups per meal).

Enter at the giveaway widget at the end of this post, but first, here's Rocco's test run with the Healthy Pet Simply Feed.





This is what it looks like while Rocco is waiting for his meal to be delivered.


Rocco was surprisingly patient... and hopeful that more food would fall!

  1. Mr. N is a pretty fast eater but not so much that I worry about choking really.

  2. depends on the dog, evie, the oldest has slowed in her eating, but she nevered gobbled her food, she is a picky eater sometimes, Tressa gobbles her food, she has a slo bowl, harley, very slow eater, she is always the last one to finish

  3. One of our dogs is a gulper unfortunately

  4. Great for one pet, but the three of us would be sitting there waiting all day and then have a fight over the one bowl! Rocco is so cute!

  5. Bailey is definitely a gulper. We have to put out 1/2 of his food in the morning and 1/2 in the evening. If we put it out all at once, he would eat until he was sick. (I think it hearkens back to his days at the animal shelter where we adopted him. The attitude there was definitely "eat now while it's there!" This would be a definite help!

    1. We feed twice a day too. What was cool about the slow feed option is that is divided his meal in half again, about 8 minutes apart. They say it spreads out the feeding over a 15 minute period. Ours didn't take that long, but that might be because Rocco only gets 1/4 cup food each meal.

  6. Casey is a grazer, I think. He never completely empties his (measured) food, always leaves a few bites in his bowl, even when I give him a little less. He always leaves at least one piece of kibble. He is a mystery. :~)

    1. That's so funny! It's kind of like when people share food and no one will take the last bite!

  7. This looks amazing! It would be so convenient for Haley since she's a gulper and sometimes we're away from home at her feeding time and she has to wait an hour or so before we get home to feed her.

  8. It takes longer for me to fill Lady Girl's bowl than it does for her to eat!!!!

  9. I have one of each. One of my dogs gobbles up his food so fast and the other one, just looks at it for a few minutes, then tries a bite and then will eventually go ahead and finish it up. Thank you.

  10. Mine is a nibbler. I had one of these auto feeders at one time and my Frankie would start to stare at it 1/2 hour before the food would fall. He also knew how to get more by licking up the 'chute' to get the kibble to fall.

  11. My dog definitely gulps her food down. She really doesn't even chew it. She just eats so fast.

    ReplyDelete
  12. My dog is a gulper when he likes his food.

  13. Rocco is such an obedient pup! I have to use a slow feeder for Bentley.

    ReplyDelete
  14. All four of our dogs are grazers.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Kouga is a grazer but Artie is a gulper. I try to slow Artie down by feeding him a little at a time.

    ReplyDelete
  16. My dogs wouldn't leave the automatic feeder if they had one. They'd know there was food in there, and would be waiting, whining their heads off until the lid opened! Then, they would continue to await more.

  17. Our new dachshund pup is a very fast eater, almost an inhaler. This would be very helpful as our senior dachshund became obese and we had a long road to get hus,weight down.

  18. My bigger dog Kota is kinda delicate eater and his daughter Shunta alsmost eats thing whole.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have a couple hogger doggers, or dog food dish hoarders.

  20. that was a awesome video and great pictures. My two dogs are gulpers and one is a grazer. This unit would work great for my cat!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I have 3 dogs. Fang is a Westie and he is a slow eater likes to be a grazer but the other dogs eat whatever he leaves in the bowl. Gunner is an Australian Shepard who eats quick but not too fast. Queenie is our Hoover -- she doesn't even chew just inhales her food in seconds.

    ReplyDelete
  22. My dog isn't much of a begger but when it's his eating time he eats all his food right away. He definitely doesn't grazr.

    ReplyDelete
  23. My pup gorges herself on her meal in only two minutes ... but she gets lots of exercise.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think brown dawgs would stare at the feeder waiting for it to magically provide food. lol Nice give away!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have one of each. Shiloh is a grazer. He usually eats half of his food right away, asks to go outside, then comes in and grazes on the rest. Wager gulps his food right down!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have four rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds (down from five - my sweet deaf hound girl, Ran, passed from an autoimmune disorder in April). Three of the four will only eat when hungry and I can leave food in their bowls. However, the fourth - my Kyoko - was nearly starved to death before I adopted her and even though she is now downright chubby, eats as though she's still starving. I bought a slow-feeder bowl for her, which helps if I'm home at every dinner time, but if I'm not home at her regular feeding time, she acts even worse when I DO give her food. I'd love something like this to feed her when I can't be home at her regular eating times.

  27. My dog is a gulper unfortunately, no matter how I try to get him to slow down.

  28. My dog eats his food.

  29. Jewels is a grazer, Jenkins our puppy is a gulper.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Very patient, Rocco! I think the automatic pet feeder is a great idea for portion control when you're feeding kibble!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Since I have six dogs, they need to eat fairly quick and everything they're offered. I do have one I feed on the couch who keeps her bowl longer because she picks. Up there, the other dogs won't get it.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Grazer but she hates it going low, if she can see the bottom of the bowl at any point she freaks out. Lol

    ReplyDelete
  33. My dog likes to gulp her food down. She is a toy rat terrier and she just inhales her food like a little vaccum.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Bean is a grazer (I wish I had her willpower)!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Both my dogs are grazers throughout the day

    ReplyDelete
  36. My dog gulps her food down. She will also eat until she throws up if you allow it. We have to portion her meals so this would be very helpful.

    ReplyDelete
  37. One of ours is a gulper, she eats her meals on a large cookie sheet so the kibble is spread out to keep her from gulping so much air.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Artie is our gulper dog who eats as fast as he can. Kouga is our dog that takes his time when he is eating.

    ReplyDelete
  39. They only gulp when they're getting a treat

    ReplyDelete
  40. The cats graze, with most of them at least showing up early in the morning just to make certain there aren't some treats being given out.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I have a dog and a cat that both gulp. And I also have an old dog and cat that like to graze.

  43. Oh dear, it's such a problem. Mike, my geriatric rescue dog, must have spent his days competing for scarce food before he came to us. He gulps and won't chew, and he has a damaged trachea! I have to pick him up and bend his throat back and stroke it to straighten his throat out sometimes! Kibble, oddly enough, he will chew - but no jerky, that's the worst.

    *sorry about the delete above, my own geriatric typos rendered my comment incomprehensible.

  44. I have two cats that are grazers and another who is a gulper and eats everyone else's food

    ReplyDelete
  45. My cats are grazers but my dog eats with gusto. I don't worry about her gulping down her food without chewing but she does lots of smacking and a little slobbering.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Both of my little ones are grazers but my sons dog he is a gulper for sure!

    ReplyDelete
