Slower Eating Bliss

Our New Food Dish

I just picked up a new food bowl for Bliss from her Daycare.  I’m surprised how much it slows her eating.  It’s made by Kyjen and is called a Slo-Bowl.  New Bowl_1963
Our kitchen looks like dog central as our new GSP puppy “Joy” is still learning to be well mannered like her big “sis!”  At four years old I had forgotten Bliss’ more manic and destructive days.  So for those with a new Weim puppy, take heart.  With some patience and persistence your biting, non-stop Weim can grow into a regal, calm adult (most of the time).
Thanks again for such a beautiful companion, Katherine
Breeder’s Note: We have talked about these type of food dishes before; however, in the midst of raising your puppy you might have forgotten. The habit of gulping food is not healthy; however, for the Weimaraner it can lead to deadly bloat. We also are encouraged by how well Katherine and Bliss have done. She told us she would have opted for another Weimaraner; however, her husband wanted the GSP. That sent her on a search to find a same quality GSP. That is another story. She did, and all is as they expected.

  1. It’s great that they found a bowl what works pawfect for Bliss and that they found the GSP they wanted. Easy got a new slow eating bowl but he removed the bone shaped stopper in the middle immediately… think we have a Dr. No on four legs …and I’m sadly not James Bond :o)

  2. I have seen the bowl you purchased. I think the bowl without removable parts would be better. :O) Weims are all about rearranging things. LOL Dr. No on four legs–hmmmm Yes, they were really surprised the GSP breeders were not doing a similar thing to what we do. I think sometimes people take it for granted until they discover otherwise. These are such find folks. They take great care of Bliss.
