Win a Loving Pets Gobble Stopper!


Do you worry about your dog eating too quickly? Gulping food (and air) can create a risk for bloat, a life-threatening condition. We are always looking for ways to slow the pace of eating at our home and we know that many of you are, too.

Loving Pets has a very innovative product called the GOBBLE STOPPERâ„¢ that’s designed to be used with your existing ceramic, stainless steel, or plastic pet bowls. The suction cup at the base of the GOBBLE STOPPER affixes the product to the bowl. Add the food and the bone shape at the top of the stopper means that your dog needs to eat around the rotating bone. The product can make your dog eat up to five times more slowly. It’s also useful for slowing down one dog while your other, slower, dog eats his meal.

The GOBBLE STOPPER is dishwasher safe on the top rack. (When it’s time to wash your dog’s bowl–which we do daily, just pull the tab located on the base of the GOBBLE STOPPER to break the suction.)

We love that the GOBBLE STOPPER addresses a real health risk to our dogs in an easy-to-use, inexpensive product. You don’t need to quit using your dog’s favorite bowls to help your dog slow his feeding rate!

The GOBBLE STOPPER is available in small, medium, and large sizes. We have one large GOBBBLE STOPPER (for bowls up to eight inches in diameter) to award one lucky DogTipper reader!

  • Kelly Ann T

    I do worry that he sometimes eats to fast. He gets so excited about breakfast.

  • Lisa F.

    My current dogs eat okay, but I have had dogs in the past (and probably will again in the future) have dogs who eat too fast.

  • cocosmommy

    Coco eats her food way too quickly. We always use some sort of food dispenser. This looks great!

  • Deanna

    Sometimes my dog will eat all of the food if the cat walks by her dish. She does it JUST so the cat won’t get it. She doesn’t need to eat all of it.

  • Helga

    Yes both my dogs eat too fast.

  • Phoenixtl

    Gobbling can be a problem.

  • Carissa Joslyn

    I am glad to see this product available.

  • Mary Witter

    Yes, I worry about bloat caused by eating too fast…also, I think it’s good mental exercise to have to “work” a little harder for his food.

  • Margie Rohauer

    i would date to see my dog get bloat so i try to make sure he doesn’t eat too fast

  • andie

    No, I wouldn’t say so!

  • andie

    Definitely the “CHARLOTTE – Metallic” bag.

  • Holly E

    Absolutely! My dog barely chews her food; she just swallows it whole.

  • Loraine Ellis

    I do worry my puppy eats in a hurry

  • godsangel777

    My dog eats too fast and he eats too much.

  • Jdace

    Yes I often worry about my aussie. He can finish his dinner very fast. I try to split it up so he gets a bit at a time. Anything to slow him down would be great. Thanks for a chance a a giveaway.

  • Linda Szymoniak

    I have five Treeing Walker Coonhounds, and while four of them do eat a bit more quickly at times than I’d like, I’m especially worried about my Kyoko. She weighed just 30 pounds at the shelter I adopted her from – nearly starved to death and weighing only half of what she should weigh. I worked with getting some weight on her and she was perfect at 57-60 pounds, but she still acts like she’s starving and not only eats everything she can get (including scavenging food the other dogs drop) and practically inhales her food. I’ve taken to feeding her three smaller meals every day, but I am wanting to find something to slow her down. This would be great for her.

  • Danielle Murgia

    Yes! She thinks if she doesn’t eat fast then the cat will finish it up.

  • Leah Lucas

    My small adult dog started to eat quickly when we recently bought a puppy.

  • sherry butcher

    my dog Blackie does not eat quckly any more he eats some and saves some for later.

  • Cynthia Amber Downer

    They don’t eat too fast, if I win this will probably be a donation to a rescue(dogs that previously starved tend to have a problem with speedy eating).

  • Christine Aiello

    Yes I think my dog definitely gobbles her food down too fast.

  • rpatrick1

    I know my dog eats too quickly. She’s in competition to try and eat all of it before the other dog comes in the room!!!

  • Robin A

    Yes she eats very quickly and eats anything

  • Jo L Smith

    Yes, My doxie is a piggie. She gobles.

  • Kristen

    My dog doesn’t, but my friend’s lab does!

  • Marilyn Nawara

    Yes. 1 dog eats so fast he doesn’t breath or chew – just sucks it down. The other dog is a slow eater — takes his time and enjoys it.

  • Yes! Our pit bull Inhales his food! (The other one is a fuss-pot who eats slowly and carefully! LOL)

  • Sandrine T.

    My aussie Confetti is definitely a fast eater. She will finish her dinner in less than 15 seconds.

  • Jennifer P

    My last Springer ate too quickly and this would have been great for him. Vix, my current baby, has always been a very picky eater. She checks out each piece of food to make sure it’s something she wants to eat. Hence she’s a much slower eater. This would be for the dog my sister recently adopter… he gulps everything down. This would definitely help.

  • Em Mahr

    Yes, my dog scarfs his food down in a matter of seconds. I doubt he even has time to chew it! I do worry about him eating too quickly

  • Ronald Gagnon

    Yes, we have had to add a small ball in her dish so she has to eat around it, thus slowing her down

  • Dogmama

    YES, we have taken to giving him small servings at a time so he has a 3 course meal instead of letting him gulp the whole thing at once.

  • Shelley P

    Yes, Diamond inhales her food.
