Encouraging your dog to use his/her mind is an important part of their overall health and wellbeing. We know, regardless of the breed, dogs love to ‘work’. Mental stimulation keeps our dogs happy, but also tires them out and prevents behaviours often associated with boredom, like nuisance barking and destruction.
SLOW DOWN EATING
Slow Feedz was specifically designed to slow down feeding and encourage our dogs to eat at a more natural pace. The benefits of this can include reduced bloating, overeating, vomiting and obesity.
If you have a real guzzle guts of a dog then this is the perfect solution, as you can take Slow Feedz apart and use each section individually. This allows you to either feed them an entire meal using all sections at one time, or you can feed them snacks throughout the day using just one of two sections at a time.
1/2 SLOW FEEDING
Two parts of Slow Feedz are designed to hold your dogs kibble and snacks. They both have little rubber grips underneath to stop them from sliding around. Perfect if your dog can't help themselves from scoffing their meals down in seamily record times every meal!
This section is best used for their dry food just as you would in their normal (some might say "boring") feeding bowl. It will keep your furry friend more engaged when it comes to dinner time. Using slow feeding bowls has been proven to increase cognitive function in dogs

1/2 LICKING MAT
The other half of Slow Feedz was designed to hold peanut butter and other pastes. It can even be frozen overnight with a delicious cocktail of wet treats. Perfect for a healthy little snack for your pup!
Tip: Particular food combinations work best for this, due to the mat being positioned vertically (If suctioned on the wall of course). These include peanut butter, tuna with a dash of cream cheese spread or natural yoghurt.
THE PERFECT DISTRACTION
If your dog hates its grooming time, then Slow Feedz is the perfect distraction. Simply lather the licking mat with peanut butter or another delicious paste and suction it onto a hard surface
SIMPLER GROOMING TIME
Grooming is a critical part of dog ownership and it’s made easy, thanks to suction on the underside of the Slow Feedz mats. By suctioning your Slow Feedz to your wall or floor, you can both distract and reward your dog during regular handling and grooming practices like ear cleaning, nail cutting, brushing, washing and blow-drying and coat trimming.
This helpful tool plays an imPAWtant role in calming even the most nervous or anxious dogs and supporting them in associating grooming with positive experiences.
HOW DO I USE IT?
Simply fill each section with either their kibble, treats or pastes and let them feast! It's also super simple to clean, just rinse them off or give them a light scrub after use.
