My 4 month old Border Terrier is perfect in everyway EXCEPT for when he eats his kibble, he wolfs in down. Afterwards, he seems to have a really stuffy nose.
I have spoken to the Vet about this issue and he says there is a bowl that will help him slow down. If he doesn't slow down it could cause problems later.
Any wisdom out there is welcomed !!!
Thanks...

Do you have a Kong ? You could feed him this way , put a few kibbles at a time in the Kong , or just put the Kong in the bowl , in the middle of the kibble , so your pup will have to eat around the toy. 2 of my dogs eat this way :D

You can put a few golf balls in the bowl too....
