The term "chowhound" didn't just come out of thin air. Have you ever watched a pup scarf down a bowl of food in literally the blink of an eye? It happens, and it's not great for their tummies - imagine if you ate everything on your plate in less time than it took your dining companion to pass the salt. The Northmate Interactive Dog Feeder ($34) is designed to look like grass and allows you to sprinkle food into it, so that your dog has to take some extra time to get to all the kibble. Not only is slower eating better for your four-legged friend, it's also a bonus for you, since it reduces the likelihood you'll have to clean up puppy puke.
