Leela has fallen into the habit of hovering her food (no other pups here, just the two of us girls), and I was wondering if I should consider a slow-feed bowl.
My concern though, is that most of the slow-feed bowls I see seem conducive to pups with snouts. Any suggestions or thoughts on this matter?
You could try a trial with a muffin tin and see if the helps.

Was just talking to my vet.....He said slow feeding bowls not good for pugs. You can try the muffin tin...or just spread it out on a cookie sheet?? I add water to mine...and feed some in a trough...that helps!

Pugs love to inhale their food! Most of ours never even chewed their food.
They do make some slow-feed bowls that are supposed to be better for short snouts, but I've never tried one so can't give an opinion. A muffin tin is a good idea - just to see if it works and if she can get the food out.
An elevated bowl doesn't really slow them down, but it helps quite a bit with those who gulp too much air while eating. There is also the Fluff Trough that several people here on PugVillage use and like. https://www.amazon.com/Fluff-Trough-.../dp/B08MV82V1Y

So good to know. Thanks Lisa!
Otis also uses a slow feed bowl. He still manages to get the food out within seconds!
