★★★☆☆Three StarsWe have a Golden who inhales his food. In fact, he has an amazing resemblance to my Shop-Vac when he's eating.This has slowed him somewhat, but it's certainly not a relaxing dinner over a glass of wine. It's probably a 50% improvement - from a 30 second affair out to maybe 45 seconds.We also tried one of the bowls with the built-in obstructions. He pushed it all over the room trying to get to his food. Then he picked it up and dumped it out.At least he hasn't tried to eat the ball. Yet...

This is such a nice product. I really did not want to give up our expensive designer stainless steel bowl and get one of those plastic things to stop our poodle from gulping her crunchies. This is exactly what we needed. It has slowed down her eating and looks great in her beautiful bowl.

I have bought a ton of stuff off of Amazon and sadly have never written a review on anything. Not today, this item impressed me so much that I am doing it right now! I have read some of the other reviews and to the ones that say it doesn't really work, they are clueless and don't know how to use this item. First off, you have to figure out the correct size you need based on what kind of bowls you use at home. I bought the small balls which are about the size of a tennis ball and they take up MOST of the room in my Chihuahua's dog bowls. You can't put this ball in the middle of a gigantic dog bowl and then complain it isn't really effective. They need to work for the food to slow down the eating, in my situation they have just enough room around the ball and bowl to fit their snout and lick up some food. This item tripled my dog's eating time if not more! Buy this product but figure out what size ball and bowl combination works best for you. Not sure how big large is but size small is about the size of a tennis ball. Click here for more size info from the manufacturers website: [...] I am so grateful for this product!

We have never had an issue with our pups/dogs eating so fast and gulping their food. We have an older Chocolate Lab who will be turning 8 this year and he eats just fine. But growing up my Grandma had a beautiful German Shepherd (GS), so of course I have always wanted a GS. Well, I have been married going on 16 years, and have four children of my own... And finally got that GS. Maggie May and boy is she a hand full. With all that said, she is the fastest eater and just gulps food down like its going to disappear if she doesn't eat all two cups of it within minutes. Well I did my "on the line" research and found this magically little porcelain ball. And I thought to myself... Self how in the world is this ball going to slow down Maggie from gulping her food? (like Rick running Carl to the makeshift clinic to get the bullet out of his eye. #TWD) But anyway I was shocked to learn and see the huge difference it has made, she no longer gulps her food and she is now a slower eater than Indiana Jones our Choc. Lab that I mentioned earlier. I would highly recommend this product to any dog owner that has a puppy or even an older dog that gulps/eats to fast.

Great product. My large papillon inhales his food. We think its due to him being a rescue. He is so brilliant that any other device he manages to pull out of his bowl. I can't use the bowls with the maze designs in them because they don't come small enough and he inhales the food anyway. This ball is slick and weighted so every time he tries to push it out it rolls back. The only reason I did not give it a 5 star was because even though it claims to be a size small its still rather large. I wish the size small was a little smaller or they offered an extra size small. Otherwise it serves its purpose.
