Yep, my dog would do the inhale-barf-repeat cycle with a regular bowl. Got one of these slow feeder bowls, and it's made a night and day difference - not only does she eat slower, but her overall digestion is actually doing better.

Stop feeding her out of a bowl.

Try feeding her out of a kong wobbler, IQ ball or similar toy that will FORCE her to slow down. You can also try hand feeding her to help reduce anxiety and keep her eating at a slower pace. They also make special 'bowls' that are meant to help your pup slow down, but I would encourage using a puzzle over these (or at least use them WITH a puzzle toy, 1/3 of the food from this special bow, 1/3 from a puzzle, 1/3 through training/from your hand)

If she is vomiting up her food, she is probably not absorbing all the nutrients she should be.

You can try feeding both dogs together out of your hands (ask for a sit, feed them both some kibble, as for a down, feed them some kibble - you can even make it a game where they compete to be the first one in order to win a kibble prize).

Adding a digestive aid can also help with nutrient absorption which can ultimately help with healthy weight gain. You may also want to consider the quality of the food you are feeding.

She may also need to be fed a little more if you manage to slow her down and she still isn't gaining weight. If she is still throwing up even after you slow her down significantly, you may want to consider an intolerance to an ingredient in the food or see your vet to rule out any health issue.

You could always just buy this to help the dog slow down when eating.

Adding to the snuffle mat suggestions - you can get all sorts of puzzles feeders too. Or for wet food use a Kong - freeze it for extra difficulty!

We use these:

The second looks harder but the first actually takes him long and is easier for us to set up! But we try to use both to change things up.

This one is made by Northmate and is called the "Interactive Slow Pet Feeder" -- dinner time went from less than a minute to about 15 minutes.

Same here, I had to look it up to get some relief.

u/orangetangerine · 3 pointsr/puppy101

I think Kongs are a good start.

I think with young puppies though, depending on their food drive and motivations, they may or may not take to puzzle toys early, so don't feel badly if it's too much for them.

We actually didn't start our dog on puzzle feeders for any "intelligence" benefit - she had super high food drive and kept eating quickly without chewing, vomiting out her meal, then eating her vomit, so we bought a slow feeder bowl which was perfect for her at 4 months old. We fed her out of frozen-solid Kongs in the morning starting when she was 5 months old to help curb her separation anxiety, and then eventually bought a Busy Buddy Kibble Nibble. Even on the easiest settings, she struggled quite a bit as a puppy so we cut down the stoppers to make the flow easier. When she got better at the game, we re-bought the toy and made it substantially more difficult.

My younger dog, a Samoyed, actually doesn't eat out of toys. He has a lesser food drive and while he'll occasionally eat out of a toy, he prefers to just eat his food and work for better snacks (i.e. training for high value treats), so figuring out what your future dog's preferences are is definitely going to be something you'll have to do as your dog grows up. This dog did not eat out of Kongs until he was about 6 months old, either. He's just as smart, just not as insanely food driven as my first dog!

Slow feeders are an option too. This is the one we have, for example. Increases our dude's feeding time from about 45 seconds (standard bowl) to over 5 minutes.

u/kororon · 2 pointsr/Dogtraining

I use a gobble stopper. Seems to work in slowing my dog down.

There's also this Northmate green feeder, but I have never used it.

u/CorgiDad · 2 pointsr/Dogtraining

Try This Bowl, it's worked wonders for my adopted dog, who would wolf her food down so fast she'd sometimes get sick when I first got her. This bowl increased her eating time from about 10 seconds to about 3 minutes. Not a huge amount of time, you might think, but for my other dog (who has always eaten at a "normal" leisurely pace), his eating time increased from about 1 minute to 5-6 mins with the bowl.

u/BlueBG82 · 2 pointsr/puppy101

Most Labs do tend to eat with gusto. Make sure he's getting enough food. They do make some different food bowls to supposedly slow dogs down.

I personally have had success with the treat type balls.

What do you use to feed her meals? Would something like this slow feeder work for her? I've heard it keeps dogs occupied for a long time, and it's good mental stimulation which can be just as tiring as physical activity.

Be aware that eating too much, too fast and exercising immediately after eating can potentially cause bloat. My vet recommended no exercise for 1 hour after eating - so I usually feed my pup post-walk.

Sudden changes to his diet can cause tummy upsets and diarrhoea. Not chewing isn't really an issue, just a side effect of how fast he eats.

If it's dry food, bear in mind it swells when damp, so a stomach packed full of dry food can become over-full and he'll puke to relieve pressure - if that sounds possible, you could reduce the portion size and increase number of meals per day so he can't overstuff himself in one sitting.

Check out Green Interactive Feeder - my pup takes around 20 minutes to clear his.

P.S. (It didn't fit in the other post!) I've now tried the second feeding device that I got, the Company of Animals Interactive Feeder, and I am very happy with it; Indra seems to be too! I am alternating between feeding him in this and the Kong Wobbler. It definitely slows the process down and he has to work at getting his food, which is apparently the "mental stimulation" thing. :~)

Green feeder? They really need to use their tongues on it.

u/-ipaguy- · 1 pointr/pitbulls

Yeah it's this one. It slows him down from about 15 to 90 seconds.
