Feeding time for Yellow Labs is a study in "waiting". Getting fed is just about THE most important time of the day for these dogs.

We usually have to clean the drool off the floors a bit after they've WAITED for their food.

And talk about focus . . .

We feed them using bundt cake pans so that they have to eat around that small groove near the edge. But even with that attempt to slow them down, their plate goes from full to empty in about 20 seconds.

These are great, and it's nice to see you back! The bundt cake pan is a great idea too.

Aw, thanks for those nice words, Bethany.  Yeah, it's good to be able to rinse my tooth brush under tap water again.  :)

Thanks Lee.  Yeah, meal time sure brings out the dogs' focus.  grinning

What a great idea...the bundt cake pan. Never even occurred to me. My idiot dog ( OK he is not an idiot, but definitely challenged) gets fed twice a day, wet food in the morning and dry  in the evening, because he is on a special diet. As soon as feeding time approaches which sometimes it is an hour before, he starts his tail wagging, staring at me, growling....you get the idea. And no sooner do I put his meal down and poof it's gone! Now I am wondering whether I could stretch the 6 second intake to a 20 second intake with the bundt pan.😉

Ha, we share the same world.  Another thing I've seen folks do is to merely put a softball in the dish along with the dry food.  Anything to get in the way of the dog "wolfing" down the food.    smile
