Dog Training Tip: Train your dog to eat more slowly

A quick, easy training trick to teach your dog to eat more slowly.

Does your dog get so excited at meal time that they eat a bit too fast? Watch this Hound Hack trick to train them to eat more slowly.

  • To help your dog slow down and enjoy every last bite, place a ball in the middle of their food bowl.
  • The ball becomes a fun obstacle and your dog will have to keep moving it around to eat their meal.
  • But beware - extra clever dogs who may be able to push the ball out of the bowl.
