Interactive dog feeder and slow dog feeder combined in one
OK, now you are wondering what we are talking about…
But first, let me tell you the story
After the sale of our boarding and the birth of our daughter, our dog was bored because of the lack of activity since he was used to come to go to work everyday with her. So my wife decided to find a solution, thinking it could help him and other people with dogs who suffer from eating disorders or boredom. This was 10 years ago…
So she designed the Aikiou “IQ” interactive dog feeder
Composed of 14 different openings where food is hidden under a rotating wheel and 4 sets of adjustable blockers.
Made to let dogs express their most basic needs, searching and working for their food using their paws to “dig ” for food.
The idea behind is simple
If our dog needed to work more for his food, he would spend more time doing this instead of chewing our stuff. Simple idea but really effective when you think about it.
Working for his food would make him spend more time eating then using a dog slow feeder which would be better for his health. He would need to dig for his food which is natural for dogs.
This would result in a dog being more balanced with less weight problems. And since he had hips dysplasia, we wanted to prevent him gaining weight.
How a dog interactive feeder help reduce weight problems?
Fun to use, dogs like to search and experience finding their own food with their sense of smell. After all, they were designed for that and are much more capable than we are. Have you ever wondered why we used dogs to search for smell, it’s because it’s natural for them and they crave it. So is this making them work for their food or just experience what they like to do. After all, they do like to dig everywhere so why not in their food bowl?
Easy to use!
This feeder is not so different than the feeder you are already using. The big difference is that your dog needs to use his nose and his paws to turn the wheel to have access to his food. Of course, this slows your dogs ingestion but using behavioural enrichment techniques used by many specialists in the dog training industry, it gives your dog a positive and enriching activity to do. So not only will your dog live a more healthy life, he will be able to use his brain and get the reward he deserves.
