Slow Down Your Dog Guide's Eating Habbits with

Most dog guides simply wolf down their food the moment they are given permission to do so, but with the DogPause, all that will change.

Introducing DogPause, the first dogbowl with proprietary SlowZones and integrated portion control. You know how you feel when you eat too fast (or eat too much)? Same thing with your dog - it's not healthy for him or her to inhale the food. DogPause is the only dog bowl clinically proven to slow down dogs' eating. In clinical tests run by professional vets, DogPause slowed down dogs by an average of 50% vs. standard dog bowls. As vets will confirm, a slower eating dog is a happier, healthier dog with less risk of experiencing (or doing) all sorts of yucky things like vomiting, gas, belching, gagging, life-threatening bloat, etc. Which makes life better for you and your dog.

The DogPause dog bowl works to slow down the pace of eating and aid with portion control in the following ways:

  • Divides the bowl into 4 feeding zones
  • Each feeding zone is 1/2 cup in capacity and designed to "block" the dog from putting his full snout into the bowl; this slows down eating pace as your dog needs to use his tongue for each bite
  • After your dog finishes each zone, he must re-position himself for the next zone
  • The bowl is designed to slide a little on the floor, further slowing down the dog as he needs to re-position for each bite
