If your cat is scared of the fountain you can always try stainless steel dog bowls like these.

Cats can't knock these over and they are very easy to clean. I have 1 fountain that only 1 of my cats uses. The others prefer the stainless steel bowls and 1 is scared of the sound of the fountain. She is also terrified of jangling keys and throat clearing sounds.

I got this bowl that reduces splash from messy dogs. Works well. I don’t know why, but the instructions say that it may take a week or two for the bowl to work. Worth the investment for my sloppy drinker. I still get some dribbles from my dog but nothing like I used to.

u/davidrools · 42 pointsr/AskReddit

I rescued a german shepherd mix when he was about 2 months old and he just turned 2 years! He's awesome!

Join /r/dogs for great community, support, and advice.

Here are some of my dog's favorites if you're lost on what to Wishlist on Amazon:

  • Hands down the best ball for fetch, if he likes fetch
  • And the launcher I like this one b/c you can just throw it in a backpack and it'll zip all the way closed (I like to keep a backpack w/ my dog's park toys, some treats, poop bags, wet ones/purell, and his shot records) The best thing about the chuck-it is that you don't have to pick up a slobbery ball.
  • Three very good chew bones
  • Advantage Multi if you're not often taking him onto tick-heavy hikes. If you need tick control, get Frontline and Interceptor for heartworm.
  • The best dog frisbee and I've tried a half dozen. Doesn't fly the best, but it's the most durable, safe, and flies great with a little practice.
  • This Car seat cover is great
  • Flexi leash is really handy when used appropriately.
  • Poo bags can never have enough of. and you go through them pretty quick.
  • Dog backpack great for burning off energy on walks/hikes, and makes them feel like they're doing an important job! I have this one in black. works great.
  • Collapsible water bowl handy for hikes/camping/outings
  • european style leather lead (leash) I'm preferential to the feel of leather for leashes/collars. And the european is absolutely the best - adjustable length and super easy to tether them to a pole/fence if you're eating outdoors or running into a store or something (of course use common sense when doing this!)
  • Harness I'm not a fan of harnesses - they're annoying to put on/take off and just encourage a dog to pull more. But if you want him to pull, towing you on a skateboard or something (my dog loves this) then it's great
    Furminator GSD mixes don't need regular brushing, but this one works great for shedding season
    Dremel for nail trimming GSD = black nails, a bit trickier to trim. I use this with lots of treats to put a nice round edge and take off a bit of length of my dog's nails. works good but get him accustomed to it slowly and with lots of treats. Pretty soon he won't mind.
    *Zukes are great treats for training
  • Bowls that don't tip over. Easy to wash. can't break. My pick.
  • Big crate I use for vacations when I bring my dog but need to leave him in a hotel room or something. It's big and bulky but I like to give him room to move around comfortably.
  • A good shampoo I like hydrosurge unscented but it's not on Amazon =\
  • deodorizer I give my dog a little spritz between baths if he starts to get funky
  • A shower head like this makes bathing super painless. I just bring my dog in the shower w/ me along with some treats and it's quick and easy.
  • a scrubber like this gets my dog cleaner than I can with my hands. I found one at petco I like

    Wow I kind of didn't realize I have so much shit for my dog. But he's family so...anyway. Also costco has great beds for $20ish (comparably $80+ from a petstore) They also carry Frontline, lots of treats (buscuits, duck breast jerkey - the best!) good food (Iams ProActive goes on sale once in a while, and they also carry Natures Domain salmon/sweet potato food that's really good).
u/LindseyLee5 · 21 pointsr/funny

Seriously look into slow feeders for cats. Mine were throwing up almost everyday from eating like this and it’s seriously changed our lives!

yoyoung Cat Catch Interactive Feeder Bowl - Slow Feed Anti-gulping Bloat Stop Pet Bowl - Puppy Feeding Bowls

This is the one we got and we are really happy with it. They have to paw their food out and can only eat a kibble or two at a time.

u/roaddogmm · 20 pointsr/Dogtraining

Get a slobber stopper bowl, you can find on Amazon. Fixed my 5 month puppy that had the same problem instantly, she actually does better with an open bowl now too

Edited to add link, expensive but worth the lack of mess. I went from water halfway around kitchen to almost no drips.

u/SirSmokesAlott · 15 pointsr/aww

this makes it even more cute :) we need more people like you adopting.

Haha my dog just inhales food too i got him this

u/TSP-FriendlyFire · 13 pointsr/AnimalsBeingDerps

My perpetually hungry chocolate lab reacted very positively to [the DogMaze]( Maze/dp/B005QJXSHC). She doesn't like it, but it slowed her eating down dramatically and, unlike just about every feeding toy I could find, it's made out of one solid piece of thick plastic rather than many fiddly parts that can be chewed on.

If you haven't, might be worth a try?

u/A5H13Y · 12 pointsr/self

My parents got their one dog this bowl (it's a little less crazy than the other one, lol), but it actually does work pretty well.

u/maDIEmG · 10 pointsr/homegym

I found these bowls for pet food just randomly searching through Amazon one day and thought it would make a nice chalk bowl and wanted to share. The one I got is the 4 cup size.

u/manatee1010 · 8 pointsr/Dogtraining

Maybe something like this?

And don't give him ANY attention when he does it. Completely ignore him- dont look, don't laugh, don't scold. Completely ignore.

u/mayoinajar · 8 pointsr/snails

Get a container, small enough not to lose track of them but big enough for a small food bowl. I guess tupperware or something similar? I'd normally suggest a kritter keeper, but they look a bit too small for one lol. I'd get one of those square, semi flat containers, like this, so that it's small but still has enough floor space. A taller but less wide one would be better, but I couldn't find any solid options.

Poke some holes in the top for air, put some pesticide free dirt in the bottom, get a small bowl to put their food in, though I'm not sure where you'd get something small enough. It still needs to be heavy so the snail can't lift it, so small plastic containers are out, but nothing too big. Seems a lot of people use bowls like this one, though usually it's for larger snails.

Make sure you spray them with water near daily. Keep the walls and floor moist (but don't flood it), feed them pesticide free/organic veggies (and some fruits, but it's said that citrus can hurt snails in large doses, so just be wary, especially because of your snail's size), get them a cuttlefish bone (found in the bird section of pet stores) for calcium to help keep their shell strong. You'll likely only need one as they're pretty big. I'd snap it in half and just put one half in at a time, preferably on top of something so that it isn't dirtied up from the, well, dirt.

I think that's mostly it?? Honestly this may be too much info lol, you only asked for where to put them.

Good luck with them! What're you gonna name them?

u/trexmafia · 7 pointsr/dogs

A friend of mine with a very messy Great Dane swears by the (admittedly, VERY expensive) slobber stopper bowl.

u/oitsjustjose · 7 pointsr/DobermanPinscher

Yes, this happens every time. I suggest a slopper stopper, it keeps my Doberman from flooding my apartment :P

u/tato_tots · 6 pointsr/PeopleFuckingDying

I had to get my dog this bowl because he used to eat ridiculously fast, you'd think we were starving him. He has mellowed out with age and can eat with a normal bowl now but his excitement just before a meal shall always remain.

u/LonesomeObserver · 6 pointsr/Hedgehog

Another male? Aspen is ok though carefresh or better yet (and certainly cheaper in the long run) fleece. You can just go to a Joann's or walmart or any hobby/sewing store and buy some fleece. Toss it in the wash as needed with an extra set in reserve. Cat food is what you should transition him to, high quality. I do blue buffalo cat food personally. It will last you a VERY long time. Hedgehog food is never as good for them as it should be. I will provide some amazon links for things you should probably get, the main one that you should but not quite have to if you have a room in the proper temp range is 72-80 degrees. Please come over to Hedgehogs Anonymous on Facebook request to join, then once you are in simply go to the files and take a look at them. I am a college student myself so I do my best to keep costs low though obviously start up costs will be high but after that its really quite cheap mostly (aside from possible vet visits).

Modular shelving can be the cage and gives him plenty of open room to roam and play around. This is the shelving I personally use and can vouch for. I have a 3x3 grid so 9 sq ft.

Here is the food I get for my Sophie.

Heating set up, again this is only if you need it and can keep the temp in the right range naturally. I dont know where you live so I do not know what your winters are like but if you get temps in the 50s or lower I do recommend it. Another preventative measure is to put the cage a foot or so off the ground, will actually keep your temps a few degrees higher than on the ground. Ceramic Heat Emitter - Use this and NOT a heat light or something for reptiles, they need to have a period of darkness to be naturally awake 12/12 light on/off schedule All that the CHE does is emit heat, no light. Thermostat with a temp probe. Plug the CHE lamp into this and it automatically turns the CHE on and off to keep the temp in the right range. The lamp part to plug the CHE bulb into.

Hide -

Mint Stick (it seems all hedgies love these things lol)

food dishes

These are all the bare essentials aside from a wheel. I and most other people will recommend the Volcano View Hedgehogs bucket wheel or Carolina Storm bucket wheel.

I was just trying to be a thorough as possible without really leaving out anything. Again please join us over at Hedgehogs Anonymous on facebook. Everyone in the group absolutely loves helping everyone with a hedge. Any question that you may have can and will be answered fairly quickly. Most if not all members would recommend getting from a USDA certified breeder just so you know the full medical history of your baby and his parents. Its also generally cheaper as the cost from a breeder is generally around $200 though that depends on the coloring. I am by no means saying do not get him from your pet store you played with him at. I dont like pet stores having hedgehogs just because they are a more sensitive exotic animal that doesnt do well in a retail setting when you have to take care of hundreds of animals at once with high overhead. But if he is behaves well with you now then absolutely get him from there. He looks on the smaller side so hes pretty young.

Again please join us over at Hedgehogs Anonymous. Cant wait to see you and your baby on there. You could potentially take him home today with a cheap bin, simple fleece bolts and food and water dishs from what you have in your house and thatll last until the rest of your supplies are acquired.

u/BogusBuffalo · 6 pointsr/ballpython

Go with the PVC set up. As some one who has used glass set ups and tried to find ways to alter them to make them better for BPs: don't bother. It costs more to make the set up 'right' and then to maintain it, because you will have to maintain it constantly. When I began, I thought I could engineer my way through and turned the tank on it's side, built a door, all kinds of things...and yeah, it worked, made a beautiful glass enclosure and I could see my snake, but it was never consistent enough to not have to check daily, like a PVC should be.

Stay away from glass. It's just not worth it.

Good choices on the reptile basics stuff.

This is the thermometer I use: Acu-Rite Indoor/Outdoor - it also keeps track of humidity.

Stay away from the Zoomed coconut husk stuff and go for ReptiChip - it's less dusty and slightly bigger chunks so it's safer for your BP. Plus that package is big and perfect for several full substrate change outs.

The water dish is not big enough - it's only 3 inches wide. Definitely won't help with humidity, unless you get 2-3 of them and put them around the set up. Get a ceramic dog bowl like this instead. It's big, won't run out quickly, and will let your BP soak if it wants to.

Use the reptibasic hides. They're sturdy and easy to clean. 'Decorative' hides are usually a pain to clean.

I've tried the decorative vine and it's no good; when your BP poops on it, the poop stays stuck and unless you're going to pull it out and sanitize it every time (the leaves are fiber, not plastic), it's just a pain to have.

Lastly, don't even bother with mice for your BP. Just start straight from rats. The sooner your BP is on rats, the easier life will be.

u/DinkaAnimalLover · 6 pointsr/Rabbits

eeeek :) Maybe I can help still....

There are these bowls that you can clip to the side of an enclosure like an xpen - like this or this or this - clip it low to the ground so it's basically still is on the ground for him but clipped in. Or even a gravity feeder like this.

u/SageTX · 6 pointsr/aww

This no spill bowl was the solution to bulldog slobber and general spilling.

u/GreatMoloko · 5 pointsr/dogpictures

I know it's a crazy expensive water bowl, but seriously, it's amazing.

u/mothrofturtles · 5 pointsr/Dogtraining

My Golden does the same thing! He’s 8 months, and any time I would fill his bowl he’d drink it all, and then not be able to hold his pee. I bought thisthis bowl and it’s been a life saver. It only lets out a little at a time which slows him down majorly. I fill it up about 3 times a day.

u/sneaky_dragon · 4 pointsr/Rabbits

If you're hydrating him enough with vegetables, he might not drink that much to begin with.

I would suggest figuring out to set up a water bowl instead though, if it doesn't seem like he likes using the water bottle. Use a heavy large ceramic crock and keep it on the other side of his enclosure so that it's harder to get hay into it.

e.g. 7" ceramic bowl:

u/bloomindaedalus · 4 pointsr/salamanders

There are many many options for housing a salamander. Nobody knows has a better internet presence for keeping them then the folks at as mentioned by u/ye_ol_chuckaboo below. They have a helpful forum where you can get info advice and answers to questions. they also have care-sheets. So i suggest you spend soem time looking there.

Some simple ideas would start with something like:

go get a 40 gallon aquarium or larger. or 3 - 4 foot plastic storage box or like this

whatever you use it will need a lid to keep things out and the salamander inside but it must allow air to pass through

the main thing here is that it doesnt need to be more than 15 inches tall but should have as much surface area (footprint) as possible. A good minimum is about 4 - 4.5 square feet. or anything at or above the "40 gallon size " on the standard US tank sizes chart here

buy some organic untreated (chemical free, fertilizer free) topsoil from a garden store.

plan to use at least 6 - 8 inches of soil at the bottom


order several cork bark hides like this logs or half logs will be good to partially bury and to keep on the surface so the animal can choose a hide.


get a *large* smooth sided glass ceramic water bowl like this or like this


use only smooth objects stones, smooth glass ceramic, plastic. no gravel no sharp rocks no sharp wood.

Moss and plants can help add humidity and attractiveness.

a water mister bottle is helpful to have around


feel free to ask any specific questions

u/Cyt6000 · 4 pointsr/puppy101

Icecubes are an easy way for them to get hydrated and also help with teething. Can you get a water dish that won't tip over (like this) it might make it easier for them to drink out of.

u/Its_Just_Chris_ · 3 pointsr/ballpython

I don't know if thats a regular log or a log hide on the bottom part but you need 2 hides. Also, get rid of the aspen bedding. Pet stores tell you its fine for BPs but its really not. They need something like coco husk that will help retain humidity and not get mold. Also, I suggest getting a much sturdier water bowl. The tupperware container you have will easily get knocked over and spill. I suggest these ceramic ones:

What are you doing for heating and is it attached to a thermostat?

In this subreddit there are pinned posts and a BP wiki that has a lot of useful information for setting up good enclosures. I highly recommend you check it out.

u/homemadepeachpie · 3 pointsr/puppy101

My pup does this too lol Get water bowls with a rubber base so they can't tip it.

MidWest Critter Nation Single Level, two level optional depending on budget.

u/YellowSwan · 2 pointsr/ferrets

So had a very similar issue, but genders were reversed (had a male who likes to eat off the tier and wood flip the bowl. Axed bowl, but returned it when I got my younger female ferret).

It could be she just likes her food out in the open because she doesn't like her wiskers touching the sides of the bowl.

Or she's doing it because it's her routine and what she's most confortable with.

Or it's dominance, she gets her food her way and by flippong it out of the cage, controlling when your new male eats.

Either you have to live with her doing it for a while and hope she eventually stops, or you can get a bowl that is attached to the cage.

I use MidWest Snap'y Fit Stainless Steel Pet Bowl, 10 oz. Found in the link below

This bowl allows my older one to scoop some food onto the tier to eat, but doesn't allow him to knock it over as it slides tightly into a track. That seemed to clear up my issue... but when he is upset at me he still manages to throw a few kibbles in my direction lol.

Hope this was helpful to you!

Of course the agility one is harder so it depend on your dog capacity at solving puzzles. My sisters dog would die of starvation :)

u/joe100su · 2 pointsr/nfl

Maybe mix it in a little [what we do with our pugs]. My older one doesn't like the new allergen-free food, so we mix it a bit with his previous one.

Also for any pug owners out there, this dog bowl has done wonders for keeping extra shit from getting stuck in his face-folds.

Props on the new cat, I love our little adopted girl kitty. All she does is eat, cuddle, and poop a whole lot.

u/JSaltsea · 2 pointsr/BackYardChickens

I've got little Foggy in a dog crate settup on my porch. First two days was easy since she felt so poopy but now she's active and feeling better and she's spitting up the pills. We got some tiny tomatoes and grapes and hiding them in it. It's best to let her eat the pills vs forcing them down her throat.

Also clean clean clean, it's super important to keep their environment clean. I have 6 large bath towels on rotation and a good layer of news paper underneath. I change the towels 3 times a day to make sure she doesn't sit/stand in wet/poop.

Also these are literally the best. She can't tip them over for food and water:

Good luck!

u/Kr_Treefrog2 · 2 pointsr/Pets

You can try a rubber mat with a hole cut in it. Get a bowl with a slight lip at the bottom like this, cut the hole in the mat slightly smaller, then fit the mat over the bowl. The idea is for the mat to be thick enough and stiff enough to be difficult to flip up and to keep your pup from getting a hold on the bowl. A horse stall mat would fit the bill nicely. Places like Tractor Supply and Rural King should have some in various sizes and thicknesses.

u/trinitech · 2 pointsr/cats

Yea they enjoy seeing the water move, my dog used to do it and make a mess

I got this and splashing stopped

no splash

u/aanderson81 · 2 pointsr/Newfoundlander

First off stuff to buy.

  1. Crate. Unfortunately from my personal experience you will likely end up with 2. I got the largest I could find locally and it worked well for the first year or so and had a nice divider so that crate training worked well, but by time Minnie was full grown it was too short for her and ended upgrading to this massive beast and she loves it

  2. Beds are a waste as others have said, they will look for what ever is cold and will lay in some of the most awkward positions you can imagine. So with that said i recommend the following pad if you are going to spend quite a bit of time in a room that is carpeted. Its filled with water and does a good job making a cool spot for them to lay. If you are handy i recommend getting some thin fabric and making like a giant pillow case for it as it will make cleaning it 100x easier and will further prevent rips from their claws (although it is quite durable on its own)

  3. Dryer. This you wont need now, but once their adult coat starts coming in around a year and they are swimming more a high velocity dryer really makes a huge difference in getting them dry and keeping their skin in good condition. I recommend googling this a bit and looking at some reviews. These can get pricey but generally you get what you pay for. I personally went with the B-Air Bear Power 4hp model, but it comes and goes in terms of availability at a decent price.

  4. Toys, they really can do a number on toys so you'll probably want to skip most plush toys and stick to the more heavy duty canvas and chew resistant toys. Generally dont spend a ton on toys because they will likely be destroyed, keep an eye on them and take them away once they really get into them and starts ripping them apart. The one brand I will however absolutely recommend is Chuck-it. They are the Orange and blue toys and I have no idea what they make their toys out of but we have several of their large balls that are going on 3 years old still in like new condition. Minnie can chew them like bubble gum and hasn't managed to destroy one. their water bumpers are nearly as indestructible.

  5. Flea and Tick meds. This will likely be controversial because ask 10 people and you will get 11 answers. But we started Minnie on Advantix II and it worked amazing, as long as you applied it frequently. Its once a month under ideal conditions, but with heavy swimming it can be as little as once every 2 weeks. As long as you are applying it on schedule it does great. Never saw anything on her and we are in New England where the tick season has been crazy the last year or two. However the cost and application timing was getting a bit much so we switched to the Sorresto collar and it appears to be working just as well (doesn't protect against mosquito like the advantix however but with their fur i figure thats a minimal issue). The advantage is with the collar is that its good for 5 months even with regular baths / swimming. So overall the cost is lower and you arent having to keep reapplying it.

  6. food and water bowls. I found these on amazon and love them. they are good and heavy, dishwasher safe and nice and large. For the price they have been amazing. The nice thing is with their weight that Minnie doesnt try to move them around to flip them over if she splashes in her water bowl. I got the 9.5" version. One note of caution, they can get chipped in shipping, so really look them over if you get them. Amazon is great on exchanging them if you get one not in perfect shape.

  7. Health and wellness. Where possible dont buy "dog" things here. A good example is if you end up having to do dewormer. Panacur-C is quite expensive because its done by weight. The same medicine is sold on amazon / Tractor Supply for goats at a much lower cost and you can easily calculate dosage based on what the mg in the comparable Panacur-C package. Same goes for probiotic. Like we use this and its lasted close to 2 years and its been a much better value than buying the dog version.

  8. Microchipping. If you have a VIP pet care in your area they do the chip and lifetime registration for under $20.

  9. Food. As a pup its important to find a food that has a low calcium content. Eukanuba Large breed puppy is one of the few that I've found that meets this. You want less than 1%. As they get older you will want to find a quality food. Kirkland Salmon is affordable and gets good feedback.
u/rkenglish · 2 pointsr/parrots

Ugh! My lovies did that all. the. time! It drove me nuts! I first got a water dispenser like this one. Since it clips into the cage, the little squirts couldn't tip it over. Refilling and cleaning it are kind of a pain, though, because you end up spilling water when you take it out of the cage.

I'd recommend a bowl like this one. This is the one I'm using now, and I love it. It's heavy, so the bird can't turn it over, even if the bird stands on the edge of the bowl. And it's so much easier to clean! I put it on the floor of the cage (away from the perches) it works great!

u/Winooski · 2 pointsr/Rabbits

Our newly adopted bunnies are very tame about their water dish, it's got an amazing clamp that's secured to the xpen. They can't move it about, and it's at a height that food/hay generally can't fit in. We gave them their choice between that and the bottle, they won't touch the bottle. :)

u/SamusAran388 · 2 pointsr/parrots

I bought some similar to this but instead of a stainless steel bowl in the inside, it's a ceramic dish. I've also used these I like the ceramic over plastic because you can sanitize the dishes better and they don't get scratched up over time. The other reason I like ceramic over the other dishes is they have a thicker rim around the edge and I would think that would be more comfortable to perch on the edge of for your bird. They are hard to find though, unless you can find a local bird farm that carries them or a bird expo coming to town. I've bought my last couple of batches of dishes when the vendor shows up at the bird expo near me.

Either type can be hung anywhere in the cage. You'll get the hang of where to place the dishes in the cage! Even after I do a make over on the cage I usually end up moving a few stuff after a couple of days because I can see that my bird can poop on something from certain points.

u/Devlik · 2 pointsr/Dogtraining

Second vote for the Tug a jug, Buster Maze also the Mushroom are also good the Bobs A lot Also works great as it has variable settings for difficulty. Puzzles like this are great but they tend to be useless once the dog figures it out.

u/kmfoh · 2 pointsr/Dogtraining

We have a beagle that was inhaling her food so we bought this and have not had the problem since. After a few weeks of using it she got used to eating slowly and realized we were not ever going to take her food away and now she eats slower even if we use the normal bowl. It also helps if we feed her alone in the kitchen and make sure that our other dog can't access that area for a bit.

u/alwayspickingupcrap · 2 pointsr/Advice

If you have stairs, put his water, food and litter box on different floors or stairway landings.

This cat feeder helps them from eating mindlessly. There are also ball shaped feeders that make them move around to get their food,

u/ariathel · 2 pointsr/Pets

Not here for the gold, just with suggestions.

This requires some rigging:, but literally one of those types of kennel water bowls - if you can find something to screw it in to, it locks in to place. Put one of those plastic placemats underneath (you can find them at most pet stores) - they'll catch the mess, and your cat can't drag a screwed in water bowl around.

Going off the kennel idea, you can easily train a cat to use one of these licking water bottles.

Also, magnetic bowls. There's tons of different types, and might be difficult to move. You can also find these in a lot of pet stores, make sure to take them out and see how they do, or order off Amazon and return it if it's not a powerful enough magnet.

Also, seconding the dripping faucet, or springing off that idea - a bowl in a guest bathroom sink, or a second bathtub. Then, if there's a mess, there's a convenient drain for it.

Good luck!

u/ms_slyx · 2 pointsr/puppy101

I'm pretty sure this is the exact one I bought. My dog is about 65lbs and I went with the 20oz size, although he has another larger water dish available when he's not in the kennel.

u/ShirtlessGirl · 2 pointsr/gifs

They make special bowls to slow dogs down. OP those are much cheaper than surgery

EDIT: here’s an example.

I️ just got into doing the HG/DB method from researching this sub. Can’t tell you how my roasts have turned out as today was the first batch, but here’s my set up. The slow feeder bowl is supposed to distribute the heat better. I️ also have an air popper but am not fond of the small batch size.

I got it on Amazon for $5. It's an add-on item, but they sell larger ones that come with Prime shipping for about $10. It's great! No more spills in the crate!

Clean water should be accessible 24 hours a day to your dog, and once she realises the water bowl is always there, and always has water, she will learn to drink at a calmer pace, failing this, you can get bowls to help your dog drink slower. [Like this one.] (

As for your post, i'd personnally recommend having family meet all three of you in an outdoor setting, then having said family walk in your front door IN FRONT of your dog. To a dog this is pack hierarchy. I'm not an expert, but this is how i solved my gsd's behavorial issues, which were pretty much as you described in your post.

This works well with my boxer. OurPets Premium DuraPet Slow Feed Dog Bowl Medium

Had the same problem, just a puddle immediately. Try these!!

There are many products designed to slow down dogs eating so I googled for dogs drinking and it turns out many dogs have the same issue as yours and there are products to slow them down! There are several different styles: Slow-Down Pet Water Bowl, Dogit Slow Anti Gulping Bowl, I feel like something like this would work too.

EDIT: Just realized I was on /r/Dogtraining and not r/dogs and you were asking for reshaping behaviors not other solutions. Sorry I need sleep! I'll leave this up in case anyone is searching for the same thing.

Yeah I hope the dog's owner eventually was able to get a proper bowl for him! We found one of these slows her down enough to actually chew her food but doesn't frustrate her the way a maze bowl does (way too slow). I'm considering smaller maze-style dishes for my ferrets and cat though, although my cat started slowing down with her dry food when I finally put up a damn baby gate to block my mom's fat, bitchy cat from entering her territory.

Growing up I had two beagles, and we used a bowl like this one here. Also, we would water down half the kibble so it was kinda soft/mushy and then mix in the hard half, and that seemed to help too.

We have a Snap'y fit which is way more secure than the hoop. The lip of the bowl literally snaps into the semi-circle and it is actually a huge pain to get out, haha. You have to tug directly out super hard, pushing down/up doesn't do much.

In this case, it is really hard to give advice, I would want to watch all of the interactions and level of guarding, aggression and injuries. I would be concerned about getting you hurt. Generally, I like advising the book you have been working with, beyond that, I would suggest working with an IAABC or CPDT-KA trainer/ consultant.

I do have a couple exercises that you might consider in the mean time, if it is safe, it's yer choice - susan garrett, normally I use kevlar gloves to protect my hand with dogs who will make me bleed. If you can be safe, I would consider switching to hand feeding.

Otherwise, it is a management issue until you can bring a consultant into your home. I would only feed in a crate with the door closed with a bowl attached to the door. I like the Snap Y Fit bowls for this propose. Normally, I have my dogs go into the crate and offer a sit with their nose inside the invisible door boundary before I drop their food into the bowl.

Whatever you do, keep your self safe and try to prevent instances where the dog practices the behavior, this becomes a self reinforcing behavior.

We have a Conure that's notorious for this. He'd dump not only his food, but also his water several times a day.

We solved that problem with these. They come in various sizes; we used a much smaller version for our Pineapple Cheek.

Harder to flip over. Having the bowl in it's own stand like this may also help.

Take a look at this to make sure she's not a little big overweight and being picky. If you're hand feeding you might as well be training, so either teach her some things or practice cues.

It's worth trying treat dispensing toys, like treat balls, stuffed kongs or such to completely remove the need for bowls.

My dog likes to play in her water bowl sometimes. A slobber stopper type bowl might help you.

I bought two of these - they're game changers.

I use this bowl to slow down my boxer mix:

It looks like there are also some other options for bowls like that, like this one:

Ive used this with good results.

u/Cadder-12 · 1 pointr/leopardgeckos

Go to petco or petsmart. Sometimes they have them in the reptile area and other times in the hamster/gerbil area. I've seen them in brown, blue, green, grey, pink, and a few other colors.

I could really do with this:

For my puppy. He eats his food too fast and always ends up being bloated and sometimes getting sick because he just gulps it all down. We have tried lots of different things with him to try and slow him down but nothing seems to be working. I think he was underfed when he was born and that is why he just shoves everything down his throat. I would very much appreciate the bowl!

I took a sip of something poison, but I'll hold on tight

Merci <3
