Bulldogs love their food too much and if they could, they would gobble all their meals in one gulp. In this post, we’ll discuss how to stop your Bulldog from eating too fast.
Eating too fast can be bad for your Bulldog’s digestive system. As a breed, they are already prone to gas and flatulence so speed eating can make it worse. The faster your Bulldog eats, the lesser he chews so basically, he’s just chugging down all the food he can consume.

Stop Your Bulldog From Eating Too Fast
Here are different ways to stop your Bulldog from eating too fast:
- Give your Bulldog small portions of food at a time and re-fill a minute or two after he finishes. It may take meal time longer but it’s best for your Bulldog.
- Separate his meal into 5 bowls.
- If your Bulldog is eating kibble, then putting a ball in the food can help him slow down.
