Thankyou for all your replies - i'm going to try the cheaper baking tray suggestion first Riley has never been interested in the normal kongs i bought him, no matter what i put in them the food is always still left inside when i come back to let him out his crate, but the wobble one just for his kibble might work. Will let you know how i get on with the tray later

Another alternative is float the kibble in cold water, and add a solid ball (hockey ball size). This slows Millie down who is a complete and utter gobbler!!!

We had the same problem with Zakk when we first got him and so we decided to use a baking tray which has worked great. I did buy a buster maze too (cheap off eBay) and we don't use it for every feed but I tend to put Zakks lunch in it and it takes him at least 10mins to eat it :-).

Alfie has a Brake Fast bowl which does the trick, he used to eat so quickly it was like he was inhaling his food! He still finishes quicker than the other 2 but the bowl has slowed him down

Another budget option is to put a largeish (orange-sized) pebble in the bowl so they have to eat around it. Worth a try before you spend ££ on a bowl - it works for us as it stops Missi finishing before the others and mugging Dolly-dog for her dinner!

Well the baking tray hasn't helped that much only slowed him down by a few seconds and he slides it round the floor making a mess - funny to watch though, it looks like a hoover's sucking it all up it goes that quick :lol: I've ordered that Trixie bowl (thanks for the link Isla) as its a good price and he needs a new bowl anyway
