I have a four month old puppy , he's a border collie but he eats his food too fast any tips to make him eat slowly ??

We used to put large stones in my lab's bowl, she had to pick around them rather than trying to inhale the food in one go.

Have a look on amazon for a slow feed bowl.
They are brilliant.

Slow feed bowl or feed by hand.

Treat ball or cube, kong for wet or wet-mix food, takes longer, more fun, spares sanity.

We recommend slow-feeding bowls for dogs that inhale their food. This one or similar: www.amazon.co.uk/Dogit-Go-Slow-Anti-Gulp-Medium-Black/dp/B0032GG5Z8

We had this problem with our pup, we alternated between a kong wobbler, scattering the kibble across the garden and just putting a couple of tennis balls in her bowl with the food.

Pets at Home do anti-gulp bowls as well

Slow feed bowl worked really well for us.
