Learn why dogs prefer to eat from flat surfaces. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCnVBY1bsZY
Anyone recommend an alternative plate you can actually get in the UK?
Lupime, I am a convert to feeding on a flat surface and cannot see me going back to a bowel. I have a toy breed with a beard and his face is much cleaner (raw diet) since changing over, also he seems happier eating from a flat surface as one can spread the food out. I haven't found anything similar to the Pet Platter in the UK and would be interested if anyone has. Flat based bowels with a small rim seem to be hard to find, however I did come across these flat based stoneware plates with a 20mm edge that look interesting.
There is a further video, Blooming Culture talks to Carol, founder of The Mine Pet Platter, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AgI_xNknFZs
Thanks Seaweed l'll have a look.
Closest I can find is
This might work for a toy breed
Lupime, if you decide to go down the feeding on flat surface route, I would be interested to know if you find it beneficial.
interesting but not convinced, I tried my dog with a large plate yesterday to see if it made any difference no it did not. If I throw a handful of dog food on the floor he still eats it very fast. He ha :)s no competition but he is a real foody. :)
Rebecca, thank you for your feedback. There is a further podcast with Dr Carol Smeja here, https://thrivingdog.co/why-you-should-toss-your-dogs-food-bowl-in-the-garbage/
Is Dr Smeja someone you trust?
