@Johann, thanks for visiting us. We have a few traveling dog bowls that we really liked and will have reviews up on the site in the next couple weeks. We also heard a muffin tin works well for slowing down fast eaters. I’ll try using one with Stetson in the coming weeks and let everyone know how it goes. For your super fast eater, this Slow Munch'n dog bowl forces them to eat slower. Our Cavalier, Willie definitely uses this one!
