My puppy eats so fast she gets sick a lot. How do I get her to slow down and chew her good better?

Go to Petsmart or Petco and buy a bowl just for that purpose. The bowls have lumps built in to deter fast eating. They make it difficult to get huge mouthfuls.

feed her smaller portions, you can feed her more often just less at each serving.

Give her small bits of her food at a time, not all at once.

Mash it up. Because then it goes down easier. And if she's eating too fast, try giving her the food parts at a time. So her belly doesn't hurt.

Give her smaller portions or just give her more food that she can eat.

Does she have diarrhea and is always hungry. Maybe not gaining weight for the food she eats? If it's just a fast eating thing then feed her a little and wait a few minutes then feed her the other half. But you may want to make sure she doesn't have hook worms. The traditional dewormer doesn't kill hook worms and they are ravenous.

Place a rock or rocks in her food bowl (obviously large enough that she won't accidentally eat it/them or even try to). She will then have to work to get to the food around and between these obstacles, which will make it take her longer to eat the same amount of food.

Spread her food on a cookie sheet or on the floor so she has to search a little.

I put a large rock in the middle of my dogs food dish because he eats fast too. This helped him eat slower

Get her a food dispensing toy! My dog scarfs her food and pukes it all back up. With the toy she has to work for her food and its it little pieces at a time. Also it gives them mental exercise because they have to use their brain to figure out how to get the food out!
