So when DogIds.com asked me to pick some personalized pet products to review, I jumped at the chance to review the "Not So Fast" dog bowl.
DogIds.com uses laser engraving to personalize the pet items. I will say that the engraving itself is pretty good. Lulu and I are generally rough on things, and we've had this bowl at least a month and a half and that engraving still looks new. And it's a sturdy stainless steel bowl. It also can fit into an elevated bowl stand if you want that. A stand can also aid digestion.
You get to choose up to 12 characters to engrave on the item, in the font of your choice (I chose Lucida, it's my favorite).
But... is a "Not So Fast" bowl worth the money? It is if your pet is a gobbler. Eating too fast can lead to digestion problems.
I actually timed Lulu with this bowl, and a regular pet bowl.
The not-so-fast bowl has 2.5 quart volume, according to DogIds.com, so while it seems like a big bowl, it fills up fast.
She finished the bowl in 4 minutes, 48 seconds. (I should have taken a picture of the finished time on the stop watch, I didn't)
The Not So Fast bowl is $19 with the engraving, which is pretty comparable to non-engraved stainless steel dog bowls on Amazon or Petco.
- Slows Lulu's speed eating
- Stainless steel
- Deep laser engraving
- Reasonably priced
- The bowls only come in one size. If you have a pomeranian, you may not want so big a bowl. Or it may not matter to you.
- Takes a little longer to get, since it has to be engraved. So you could wait a couple weeks to get your bowl.
- Have you ever done any personalized items for your pets?
