Make Mealtime Fun - Play with Your Food #PAW5 + GIVEAWAY!

Do you have a hound who chows down his food too fast, or a smarty-pants pup who loves to work?  Maybe even one of each?

Part Bowl. Part Puzzle. All Dog.

Dogs are incredibly intelligent, social animals full of energy and enthusiasm. And like Penny, many of them are born with a strong work ethic.

Unfortunately, with the always-on-the-go, multi-tasking lifestyle that many of us Americans now lead, our dogs are becoming bored, stressed, and under-stimulated.

So, what's a busy family to do? Make mealtime a fun time with Rock 'N Bowl!

Making mealtime fun is easy with a PAW5 Rock 'N Bowl - just fill and let the bowl do all the work! #dogpuzzle #dogbowl #LapdogCreations ©LapdogCreations #sponsored

The environmentally friendly, interactive puzzle feeder makes dogs think and problem solve, while instantly rewarding them. Your enthusiastic pup will be, quite literally, playing with her food, and your chowhound will be slowing his roll!

I love that the Rock 'N Bowl is so easy to use. It requires no more effort than a standard dog bowl. Just pour kibble directly into the top and let the bowl do it's thing. The food will fall into the hidden compartment, and your dog will nudge and paw at it, getting the bowl rocking, and the food tumbling out.

It's also super easy to clean! After your pup is done eating, the Rock 'N Bowl easily breaks down into three dishwasher-safe parts (top-shelf only). Now that is something this multi-tasking doggy Mama sure appreciates.

The one-size-fits-all bowl holds up to four cups of food, making it suitable for just about any breed, and is currently available in two vibrant colors. We opted for the teal blue, but you might prefer the orange.

As if that weren't enough to make any doggy Mama smile from ear to ear, the Rock 'N Bowl is made in the USA from BPA and phthalate-free plastic. There's not a lot of standard dog bowls made in the USA these days (trust me, I've checked), which makes me an even bigger fan of PAW5!

As you'll see in the video clip below, we had a lot of fun testing out the Rock 'N Bowl. Sophie and Penny teamed up for a little game of "catch it if you can" as they nudged the bowl around and waited to see where the kibble would spill out. Teutul was a little less "dainty" about getting the bowl rockin'...

The Lapdog Creations kids had a blast with their PAW5 Rock 'N Bowl

I love how interested all three of my dogs were in the Rock 'N Bowl. Penny is always looking to learn something new and to work, while Teutul sometimes needs a little encouragement to slow down at mealtime. The bowl is perfect for both of them.  

Sophie likes to eat, which makes the bowl perfect for her too.

It's official, we love the Rock 'N Bowl and can't wait to see what's to come from PAW5!  The company believes enrichment makes things fuller, more meaningful and rewarding and is committed to their Four From Five™ promise

Looks like the pups had fun! Harper would love it ☺

Ruth Epstein said...

I love the idea as it would be great for fun and games also in the house when it rains

Natalie Hartmann said...

My 3 fast eaters would love this!! Most of the bowls designed to slow down eating make it impossible for my flat faced dogs to eat but this would work perfect! Plus, it would make mealtime so much more fun!!

Marjie said...

Tank has one of those food dishes with the spikes poking up because he eats too fast. I think he would enjoy this - in blue, of course. Looks like the Lapdogs had a rollin' good time with it!

evie said...

i think it is a great way to give your dog something to do while eating or giving them treats. i have one and leave treats in it when i leave the house to keep them busy. however, i heard 2 of the girls fighting over the treats as i left the house the other day.

Elaine Kahler said...

This food dish would be great stimulation for the dog!

Sue said...

Sky used to eat from a slow down bowl. Now little Mackey gobbles her food. Sometimes it doesn't settle well and we're having trouble keeping her weight down. This type of bowl might help her, yet still seem like fun.

molly pitcher said...

My high energy quick eating pooch would love this.

Suzanne Dean said...

What an inventive idea. I love how it is a food bowl and those little noses really know there is more somewhere creating the game of finding it.

tubby3pug said...

Cool idea. We have lots of puzzle toys but notice they aren't usually good for flat face breeds. They worked better with norbert. Tuvok could do them but he's motivated by food. We struggle to get him to eat

Amanda Yantos said...

This would be great for my crazy girls!

Tenacious Little Terrier said...

Mr. N enjoys a good food puzzle. We have one from Christmas that we need to try out!

Three Chatty Cats said...

That video is so cute! I think my dog would like this bowl, give him a little more do to a mealtime!

2browndawgs said...

That looks like a fun and challenging way to eat. Loved the video.

Daniel Scott said...

I want to stop him from gulping his food. He eats too fast and I'm worried about bloat.

AliR said...

How much do I want (need) this for Simon? Seriously! This looks awesome! Love the video and the review! Entering and sharing!

Talent Hounds said...

Looks like a lot of fun. Kilo the Pug would love this - he gobbles his food but loves to play.

Fur Everywhere said...

I've seen these bowls a few times, and they look like a lot of fun for dogs. It looks like you could use a couple more. :)

Pawesome Cats said...

What a great idea - we have a few fast eaters in our home.

Robin Mudge said...

This bowl looks like a lot of fun! Who doesn't want both playtime and treats/food? I love products that help to challenge our pets' minds. The brain is so important and often neglected.

LAFF said...

I have a dog who could do well with the mental stimulation that this would give him. He's very food motivated, so it'd definitely be a hit. Thanks!

Christine Caplan said...

We need a Rock and Bowl for Walter badly - I'll enter for this and LOVE this concept for a bowl.

Christy Paws said...

I don't have dogs but my best friend has a dog who inhales his food. She's tried other slow feeders but I think this one looks so much better.

MattieDog said...

Da pups love your post - we think dis bowl is fabulous, thanks for sharing!

Rosa Doodle said...

What a unique bowl! I love that it holds 4 cups. It's perfect for every size dog.

Daily Dog Tag said...

Two of my dogs eat too quickly, they all love puzzle toys, so this is perfect for them!

Sadie and Co. said...

I must get one of these for Henry. He inhales his food! We've tried several products and methods to slow him don't but he always figures out a way to work the system.

FiveSibesMom said...

What a great bowl! Many thanks to Sophie and Penny for the great demo! My Huskies all love puzzles, plus I have a gulper Husky and this would certainly help her to slow down! Great review and thanks for hosting the cool giveaway!

Kia said...

What a cool bowl! Simba sometimes eats too fast...this is would help.

FidoseofReality said...

This is a clever idea. I love that the dog has to think, has fun, and slows the digestive process down. A win win for sure!

Sweet Purrfections said...

I wonder if my mom's dog would eat from this bowl. He inhales his food.

maryehaight said...

Ha! Thanks for introducing this product. I hadn't heard of it. Play with your food is right, and it sure slows down the gobbling process! Nice video, though all that initial rocking work got less reward than it should, lol =)

Cobb Rabble Rouser said...

This looks like a really neat bowl. My little girl eats her food so fast! This will definitely help.

Jenna,Mark Drady said...

I have tried so so so many different slow feeder bowls for my boy Koda, and none of them have worked. I think this would be the perfect solution!!!!

Erin Amanda said...

These playtime bowls are great for dogs with separation anxiety and fast eaters! I am decidedly pro-anything that stimulates a dog's mind to keep boredom from setting in!

askjodi said...

Wish I had this for our last dog Ernie - it would have solved many an issue!

Schooner and Skipper said...

It would slow my dog down in eating..he is a gobbler!

Sherri Telenko said...

I want this because Victor, my dog, needs one of everything. And I love orange. I hear it's the new bark.

Maria Pollock said...

I think this would be fun for my smartypants Briley! Anything that feeds her and keeps her entertained,is worth it.

Savannah Carpenter said...

Hopefully my puppy won't eat too fast with this bowl! He needs it! Lol

Heather Duquaine said...

This would be great! I have two dogs, one very slow eater and one eater who is super duper fast. This bowl would make meal time more enjoyable for all of us if my fast eater had to work a little harder. This would be great for his mind also!
