Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Bandit always eats fast. As if she'll never eat again or she hasn't eaten for days. I guess it's okay right? She doesn't throw up, she doesn't have bad poops. So I guess some puppies just love food and eat quickly?

Sometimes it can be a bad thing. It can cause bloat or other things. Try one of those slow feed bowls.. http://www.amazon.com/Kyjen-2872-Slo-Bowl-Feeder-Interactive/dp/B00FPKNRG4/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1417218723&sr=8-2&keywords=slow+feed+dog+bowl+large

Also don't have their bowl level to where they don't have to reach their head down to eat or drink, not saying that you do, but when they lower their head, it also slows them down a bit.

It can cause problems if she's gobbling it down fast. Choking it down rapidly can cause her to gulp air, which can lead to bloat and other issues like Lucy mentioned.

As she said, a slow feeder can help a lot--we have this one

When Anya used to gulp her food, we also spooned her breakfast into a large Kong--like this one--the night before. We'd pour water through it, then freeze it overnight, then give it to her in the morning. It would be utterly frozen, so she'd really have to work on it. It slowed her down AND kept her busy, double win!
