A few days ago we told you about the latest product, Aikiou Dog Bowl that we received in the mail for review. In case you missed that initial review check it out here: Aikiou Dog Bowl – In For Review. Our Black Labrador Retriever, Stetson sunk his teeth into (literally) it and had a his first few chances to use the Aikiou Dog Bowl during mealtime.
Aikiou Dog Bowl Midweek Review
As I mentioned we recently received the super cool Aikiou Interactive Food Bowl. We’re still debating whether it’s more of a dog toy or a bowl. Anyhow, we grabbed our ultra fast eating champion, Stetson and let him put the bowl through it’s initial test.
Tail Of The Tape
The Challenger (The Product): AIKIOU DOG BOWL
- 13 x 2.5 x 13 inches; 1.6 pounds
- Interactive dog bowl or is it a toy?
- Slows down eating
- Aids in digestion
- Durable Plastic
The Champion (Product Reviewer): STETSON
- 75 pounds of Black Labrador Retriever (he’s put on a few pounds since this picture was taken)
- Always Hungry
- Sniffing Champion
- He hearts food
- Has already taken down the other fast eating dog bowl challengers
Stetson’s initial reaction to the Aikiou Dog Bowl was “What the heck is this thing? and how do I get the food out of it?” He was able to get the food out of the initial exposed compartments, but didn’t immediately figure out how to slide the levers to get to the food in the opposite compartments. I showed him once and from then on he figured out how to slide the levers with his nose and paws.
The spinning disc at the top of the Aikiou bowl was even more difficult. It took several attempts with help and guidance from me to show Stetson how to spin and rotate the disc. His initial response was to just slide the entire dog bowl around the room hoping treats would magically fall out. However, after working on spinning the disc for Stetson he figured out how to rotate the disc by just using his nose on his own.
In just a few short days Stetson has mastered the Aikiou Dog Bowl and eats out of the bowl once in the morning and once in the evening. Just as advertised this bowl has drastically increases the time it takes Stetson to finish the same meal of food he polishes off in seconds with a regular aluminum dog bowl.
However, how much time it take now will be shown in our upcoming final video review of the Aikiou Dog Bowl. Also, we will discuss why we will or will not continue to use the Aikiou Dog Bowl as Stetson’s regular feeding bowl.
