Fluff Trough Elevated Pet Feeder and Binge Blocker Review (The Pugly Company)

Fluff Trough Elevated Pet Feeder and Binge Blocker
What It Is

The Fluff Trough was designed by the owner of a pug who struggled to eat from a traditional dog bowl because of his flat face. Unlike a regular dog bowl that's lower to the ground, the Fluff Trough puts less strain on your dog's neck as they eat.

Each Fluff Trough set consists of an elevated tray base, a silicone insert that slides into the base and holds food, and a set of feet that goes on the bottom of the legs.

Fluff Trough also offers a style called the Binge Blocker. It's the same base and feet as the original, except the insert is a textured slow feeder. This is for the dogs who tend to gobble up their food in just a few seconds, as eating too quickly can make them sick or even pose a choking hazard.

Why Is It Useful?

The elevated design allows dogs to eat more comfortably. It's also a great solution for messy eaters, because the high sides and back prevent food spills. The tray is very stable on the ground and doesn't slide around as your pet eats. It's dishwasher-safe, which makes it easy to clean.

Who It’s For

Although it was developed with one specific dog in mind, the Fluff Trough has benefits for dogs of all breeds of sizes. The original Fluff Trough is geared toward smaller dogs, measuring 10 inches wide with the food basin 5.5 inches off the ground. The Fluff Trough XL, measuring 13 inches wide with the food basin 6.5 inches off the ground, is suitable for large breeds. The original holds two cups of food and the XL holds four to five cups of food.

What To Be Aware Of

If you already have a Fluff Trough or Binge Blocker set and want to supplement them with additional or different inserts, you can purchase just the inserts separately.

Regular, XL, and Binge Blocker Inserts are all dishwasher safe. The XL is available in black and gray, while the original and Binge Blocker comes in black, gray, teal, and purple.

The Binge Blocker didn't seem to slow Dex down very much - he's a fast eater and ate out of the Binge Blocker and original Fluff Trough at about the same speed. Of course, you may have a totally different experience with your dog.
