What is the PAW5 rock ’N Bowl?
The PAW5 rock ’N bowl for dogs is part puzzle and part bowl. It’s created to make your dog’s meals a lot more challenging and a lot more enriching than a standard bowl (or at least slow them down a bit).
PAW5 Rock ’N bowl review
My thoughts on the rock ’N Bowl:
I was ecstatic to try this bowl for my 9-month old weimaraner Remy. Anything to challenge him even slightly is a plus!
Turns out the bowl is not much of a puzzle for Remy because the food falls through so easily. What it ends up doing, though, is slowing him down while he eats. The bowl requires him to bump it and push it around a bit as though “foraging.”
“Dogs are wired to forage and hunt for food,” according to PAW5. The bowl helps turn a “30-second, mindless chow down into an engaging, thought-provoking, playtime puzzle.”
What is the cost of a rock ’N Bowl?
The cost of the rock ’N bowl is $29.95.
What’s special about the product?
The bowl is made in the USA with recyclable plastic complimentary of BPA and phthalates, according to the company.
It holds up to 4 cups of food and breaks down into 3 dishwasher-safe parts.
The rock ’N bowl is very long lasting and can manage a lot of pawing, scratching and pushing from my large dogs (Lab mix and weimaraner). Some dogs would be able to chew it, but it’s not created to be a chew toy.
Pros of the rock ’N Bowl:
Makes your pet dog think for his food
Works for dogs of all sizes – tiny dogs on up to gigantic breeds
Soft coating on bottom so it won’t scratch hardwood floors
Works well for dogs that “give up” easily on harder puzzles or dogs who need to build confidence
Perfect for puppies!
Made with safe materials (BPA and phthalate-free plastic)
Easy to clean and can also go in the dishwasher! (Górna półka)
Good way to slow down a pet dog who “inhales” food
Works well for food-motivated cats who need a “job” (Beamer!)
Too easy for a lot of dogs to be considered a real challenge or puzzle
There weren’t any instructions for taking the bowl apart. I didn’t know if I must twist the top off or force it out. turns out you force it.
Not created for treats – it’s a lot more for meals of dry pet dog food.
Would I buy the Rock ’N Bowl?
No. It’s just too easy for my dogs so it’s not really worth it. I actually like it best for my food-obsessed cat Beamer.
Would I recommend the rock ’N bowl to others?
Yes, I would recommend this as a “slow feeder” for a pet dog who tends to “inhale” his food. I would also recommend it as a great challenge for a puppy or for dogs who tend to get bored or give up too easily with harder puzzles. I also recommend it if your indoor cat needs a job.
