If your dog woofs its food down in seconds then you may be keen to explore some of the ways of slowing things down a bit and allowing your dog more time to eat their food. The invention of a dog food maze allows your dog to turn meal times into something more play orientated, dogs are used to having their food put nicely on a plate in front of them and then once they leave the kitchen either sleeping or engaging in some playful activity. But by making use of the great dog food maze you can refocus your dog on hunting for their food and also stop overeating.
The range of dog and indeed cat food mazes is expansive, with most well-known dog toy brands expanding their range of merchandise and now selling a dog food maze of one description or another. Lets begin by exploring some of options on the market for fast eaters who need a gentle reminder to slow down!
Green Interactive Dog Feeder
This great little dog feeder isn’t actually a maze but it works in much the same way by slowing down the length of time it takes your dog to eat their meal. Simply place the Kibble inside the little indents and your dog will have to work for their lunch. By scattering the dogs food on the dog feeder you’re encouraging your dog to slow down their eating and prevent them from getting over excited and binging on their food.
Buster Dog Maze Bowl
We love this great little dog bowl maze and think it will make a real difference to your dogs mealtimes. Its been designed to mimic the natural behaviour shown by Wolves in the wild, where the animals would have to rip apart the entire animal carcass before being rewarded with their meal. Although far removed from being an animal carcass this dog food maze encourages your dog to hunt for their food in much the same way. They have to use their dual senses, sight and smell, to guide each individual piece of kibble through the maze before it comes out the front space thus allowing them to enjoy their well earnt snack!
All For Paws Interactives Dog Food Maze
This dog maze is a bit different from the ones above as its got a rather sturdy base, although it does still follow the overall maze format in that your dog will have to figure out how to get their reward through the various pathways before snack time. This dog food maze cleverly comes in a range of bold colours and has different base sizes so you can ensure you’re getting the right fit for your dog.
Rotating Bone slow feed bowl
This great little deep dog food bowl is designed to keep your dog entertained for longer thus ensuring they don’t gulp their food down in one bite. Its made with the same principles as other dog mazes in that it will allow your dog to engage in some of their natural hunting behaviour. Its not got the same maze puzzle principle as the previous products and works by having a rotating bone in the middle of the bowl that works by dividing the overall surface of the bowl. Its a great design and with the bone being able to be set to spin 360* its a popular product to have in the home of any dog.
