Question: Our dog gulps down her kibble, do you have any suggestions on how to get her to chew her food?

Hi Cindy,
 
I hope things are well with you. We are getting on great training our two dogs but we have a problem with our golden retriever who is now nearly three years old, she gulps down her food (we give her Hills JD nuts/kibble). We feed her twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. To try and slow her down eating we have put a large smooth stone in the middle of her bowl and the nuts around it, this slowed her down a little at the start but she has gone back to her old ways and gulps down her food (without chewing) at an enormous speed. We have read that this is not good for her and she develop bloat!
 
Can you suggest anything to help her chew her food, we are at our wits end!
 
Thank you and we await your reply.

Cindy's Response:

You could try this bowl, Skid Stop Slow Feed Bowl.

I’d also add water to her food ahead of time and let it soak and get soft. This will be better for her digestion as well.

On Leerburg's Double Ply Belt Leash

I bought my first Leerburg leash in 2010, I believe. I have bought several and today I am buying another. There is no doubt in my mind that you cannot buy a better quality leash anywhere...for any price. The belt leashes are the perfect length; the hardware is beautifully cast and the versatility for tethering usage is unmatched. By now, I am a dog "hard-goods techie," and I give Leerburg leather goods my highest recommendation.
