by far the best dog bowl on the market...
Terrebonne, Quebec (PRWEB) April 16, 2013
After 5 years on the market, the AïKiou (pronounced IQ) has a well deserved facelift. This dog bowl, invented by Kathleen Desrosiers, a veterinarian technician and mother at home, created a blast when she started the interactive feeder category with this dog bowl.
Pet owners will love this new design. This dog bowl is even better and funnier than the first generation. With adjustable toecaps and a new center wheel design that makes it easier to fill, it raises the bar again. In a world of spike bowls, this is truly the best slow feeder. It also challenges the natural sense of smell and make dogs search for their meals.
Like the original Aïkiou, this second generation use behavioral enrichment to get dogs to do a constructive activity instead of chewing peoples' shoes. Behavioral enrichment is strongly recommended by the ASPCA as it helps them relax. But most of all, it helps prevent bloating and digestive problems.
Unlike spike bowls, this one has several compartments in which food can be hidden. Since dogs really like to find hidden smells, the company found that this would be the best way to make a feeder that would both entertain them and eat at a healthier pace. It also uses their basic instincts to get them to do a positive and structured activity.
"This bowl was originally intended to entertain our Golden Retriever named Sumo. He was adopted by the family at a rescue and became a mascot at the family boarding. After the boarding was closed, Sumo was bored living at home and I needed something to entertain him," says Kathleen Desrosiers.
Like every other product created by this young company, they only use BPA and BHT free plastics. It also ensures that no lead is present by using the same tests that would be used in baby and children's products.
AïKiou company gets its name from the initials of Alexandre and Kathleen and is pronounced IQ since it designs interactive products that makes pets use their brain. As founders of the company, they wanted to create new products that would make peoples and pets lifes better with the highest possible standards. This small family own company was started in 2008 in Canada by husband and wife and now has representation in several countries including the United-States where it recently signed with Zeus and Company as a distributor.
