Zeus is a Speed Eater how can I stop this?

I did some searching about this problem but all I found was people suggesting the slow feed bowl! he has one already and swallows his food whole like its his last meal! When we feed him kibble at night it lasts 30 secs. IF that! He doesn't slow down and chew it? i try to feed him 2-3 pieces by hand and he just swallows them whole. Any ideas?

Wanna know what I do? I don't use a food bowl with all meals. I mean yea you can go spend $20-$40 bucks on a slow feeder... But this is just easier. measure out what you are going to feed the puppy. Take it outside and scatter it in a small area in the grass. It not only stimulates the dog by making it sniff out its food, but it ingests the food at a slower rate.

You can also just get a ball and put in the bowl. The ball would make it harder for the puppy to eat its food, thus slowing the rate that it eats. Does the same thing a slow feeder does, just at a cheaper price.

Yeah.. here is the solution..... just throw the food or kibble out on the floor.. slow him way down!! I also like just tossing some kibble or food out in the yard and it gives a little game to it...

But just spread it out on the floor and youll see what you need to those slow feed bowls don't work for our dogs... lol

Sounds perfectly normal to me, none of my dogs ever took more than a minute to eat a bowl of kibble, we used to add water to my males since he would choke half the time otherwise. A dog doesn't need to and won't chew something as small as kibbles. Even on raw mine are done eating in under a minute unless I give them a whole deer leg or something.

not healthy to speed eat, if the OP wants to slow down his pups eating, we offered suggestions, if you want to break world records with yours its cool,, but its not healthy to eat quite that fast.

Not healthy how? How long does it take your dogs to eat a bowl of kibble? A dogs teeth are not designed to chew something as tiny as kibble, nor do they need to for digestion so a little unclear on what the actual problem is. Perhaps you missed it in your need to bash my answer but I also gave a solution.

Are you saying it is healthy for a dog to eat 3ish cups of kibble in a literal minute? That is is not bad for the digestion of the food?

Just because your dog does it too doesn't mean its normal or healthy. My need to "bash" your answer stemmed from incorrect information being given.
Adding water is a way to slow down eating, and a way to inhale water through the lungs instead if your pup eats fast.

I'd still make a game of it and take some kibble and throw it out into the grass and let the pup eat it that way also. Mine love it. LOL

You can also put it in one of those toys where he has to knock it around to get the food out....keeps his brain stimulated and slows him down

LOL Shiny shit LOL

I have had to slow down my boys eating since he was a tiny pup, even at two weeks old he finished his bottle almost twice as fast as his litter mates. What I usually do is measure his food out in a zip lock bag, then I make him follow my commands to get fed. After each command he gets to eat a few kibbles out of my hand until his meal is finished.
