Dog Tip: Does Your Dog Eat Too Fast?

Tyler and Franklin's bowls
If your dog eats like a starving wolf at every meal, there's a way to get them to slow down other than lifting up their dish, taking it away or pulling your dog back. We learned about putting a tennis ball or some other object in the middle of their dish, so they have to knock it to one side of the bowl to get food. So, get a ball, relative to the size of your dog's dish.
Tyler likes to wolf down his food
 - Because we bought bone-shaped dog bowls for our little Tyler the terror, we found a rubber bone that fit perfectly in the middle of it, and it really helps. Another thing you can do is add baby carrots to their food to get them to stop and chomp on the carrot. Try it!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
