How the DogPause Bowl Works

Moki has asked for more information on the DogPause bowls, so we thought we would make a separate post to explain it.

This is Merci with her empty bowl.

The idea is to stop a dog - we'll use Buddy for our example here - from scooping food by the mouthful. If you notice, the bowl is more oval than round and divided into half cup sections. The sides are curved and narrow toward the bottom. In order to eat, Buddy has to utilize his tongue. Merci has a narrow nose, Buddy's is wider and Samaritan has a broad nose, yet the bowls are one-size-fits-all. Now, we eat dry food but the concept would be the same for canned food.

In addition, the bowl is designed so if Buddy tries to eat too fast, the bowl moves and he has to reposition himself.

At this time, a bowl for cats is still in the development stage, but you can read more about the dog bowl at www.dogpausebowl.com.

You can read our original post here or yesterday's update here.

We hope this answers your question, Moki. And thanks for asking.

Buddy, Samaritan and Merci


  1. Somebody was really smart to make that invention!

  3. ome cats in this house (who shall remain nameless) could really use a bowl like this. SOME cats eat so fast, that they "revisit" their food (which is almost NEVER chewed). Sigh. Of course we won't mention any names.....

    Thanks for the award! We shall post about it tomorrow.

    ps. Seen our van around?

  4. Sigh... that first word is missing its "s". We meant to say "Some". oops!

    Us (AGAIN)

  5. Hooray for less woofie gas!!

    We don't eat very fast. But we do when Mom calls us for supper!

  6. That's a pretty cool bowl, you gotta admit!


  7. I think you should have filled the bowls up an extra time so Merci, Buddy and Sam could SHOW us. Really. Woo.

  8. Buddy ,Samaritan and Merci,

    that is so clevew..I think a lot of doggies can benefit fwome this..thanks fow telling us
    hope all of you at JFF awe well
    love and smoochie kisses

  9. Someone knew what they were doing when they made the bowl to slow down the fast eating. This is a good thing to have if you have the fast eaters as it will keep you from eating too fast and getting sick.
    Keep up the good work at your place. Nice job all!!


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
