Petmate Diggin' Diner - Review and Giveaway

I received product for review from Petmate.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
My dog, Helen, has a bad habit of eating her food way too quickly.  It seems to take me more time to dish it out and put it her bowl than it does for her to gobble it up.  Once in a while this causes her stomach to get upset, and you can only imagine the repercussions from that!  

A solution to help control the fast feeding is the Petmate Diggin' Diner.  Developed to slow pets' intake of food, this playfully designed feeder features a spinning cylinder that is activated by the pet to distribute food at a much healthier pace.  Dry food falls out from a strategically placed opening in the cylinder that spins when your pet taps it. It all works to encourage physical and mental stimulation.


Placing the food in the cylinder is a simple process.  All you have to do is take the cylinder off the notches and open it up.  Then put the dry dog food inside, close the cylinder back up, and set it back on the dish.  A non-skid base keeps the dish in place.

At first, Helen wasn't sure what to think of the contraption.  To ease her into it, we set the Diggin' Diner next to her regular food bowl for a couple of days, then replaced it with the Petmate Diggin' Diner.  I showed her how the cylinder spins to make the dog food drop.  Once she knew what to do, she caught on fairly quickly.  I've noticed that her eating time has increased, and she has to use some mental power to get the food.

Win It!

One person will win a Petmate Diggin' Diner.

We do not own a dog, so no breed. We will own one when we get a house. This would be for my sister-in-law who has a Golden Retriever. Thanks for hosting.

I have two Chihuahuas. One is a purebred who had a very unfortunate life as a breeding mom before her rescue. She is a dear dear darling girl. She is also something of a pig. Not her fault because the horrible people who used her as a puppy mill overfed her and now she feels like she can't get enough. I would love to try this to slow her down.
