Remember your parents telling you to slow down and thoroughly chew your food at dinner? Not only does it help prevent choking, it also aids digestion. And that doesn't just go for little kids. Dogs can also benefit from a more leisurely approach to dining, and that's why this bizarre bowl is covered in tiny plastic mountains.
The $US40 Green Interactive Feeder encourages your dog to take its time while eating since it has to work its tongue and snout into every nook and cranny to find the food. It apparently also serves up some great mental stimulation as they hunt for every last morsel, but given how excited a dog gets when its dinner time, you might feel a little guilty serving up their supper in a skill-testing challenge.
