The Mathie Pack was brave enough to take on multiple products from the beco line! So not only does this review encompass multiple products, you also get view points from multiple animals. Overall, the pack gave the products an average of 4.5 paws! That seems pretty incredible that the whole pack could agree on all the products.
Let’s break down each product, complete with questions, individual grades, photos, and even some video!
Product 1: becobowl
Issue solving: for my dogs that eat quickly, yes. It helps slow them down. For the already slow eaters, just used it like a normal bowl.
How long tried: about 1 min per dog per meal. Tried on all my dogs throughout a week.
First impressions: cool design, easily stacks and held. Love the idea of the material. Easy to carry if you have all the same bowl. Not so much if you don’t, doesn’t allow stacking with other bowl types. Large size make it difficult to take when traveling, but stack-ability helped minimize that negative of the product. Nice that they are dishwasher safe.
Lasting impression: handled my crew just fine, I washed them before letting a new dog eat out of it by hand (not in dishwasher). Dogs seemed to like it. It worked to slow the quick ones down. Good product.
Things they loved: they love anything that feeds them so the dogs LOVED the product 😉
Things you would change: size, I travel with my pups a lot so the size makes it difficult. Doesn’t have a “double use”, the dogs didn’t like to drink water out of it. So for anyone who travels and wants to have one bowl for food and water, this is not ideal bowl.
Recommend to others: yes
Staple product: will use on the pups who need to slow down eating. Won’t use for dogs that didn’t have that problem.
Compare to other products: I have seen other slow eating bowls around so yes. But this is different due to the product material which I personally like. It would make me buy it over the other like bowls.
Product: cat becobowl
Solve issue: no, my cats don’t eat too quickly but it did slow them down due to spreading the food out.
Tried: 4 cats tried it. Fed twice a day. Had product for a week
Impressions: good size/shape. Seems sturdy
Lasting impressions: same as above. Cats like it but they love food also!
Things I/they loved: they loved they that it fed them! I liked it because it seemed sturdy. My cats have broken a few bowls when playing, etc. so it doesn’t seem like they could break this.
Change: nothing, maybe make it a little smaller.
Recommend to cat friend: yes
Staple product: yes, I really liked how sturdy it seemed. Easy to clean
First impressions: sturdy, easy to use
Lasting impressions: Dogs thought it was great because it delivered their food.
Things loved about the product: I am personally not a fan of using a scoop to measure dog food. But I like the material it is made out of, that it is sturdy, I like the size (2 cups)
Things you would change: The fact that you can’t specifically measure the amount of food you are giving your dog, many dogs are overweight and I think products like this that allow owners to estimate play a big part in it.
Would you recommend it to another dog friend? No, I would recommend a true measuring cup.
Does this have a chance of becoming a staple product for your dog? no
Any product you can compare it to? Yes, other scoops on the market but the material is unique.
Grade: 2/5 (only because it is a scoop not due to function, etc)
What is the product name? becohoop
What type of product? toy
Is this being used to solve an issue with your pet? no
How long was it in action/tried? A little over a week
First impressions: loved it, perfect size, easy to clean, seems very sturdy. All the dogs were excited when I got them out to play with and have been playing with them all week. Some seem to like it more than others but they are all unique and that is how it normally goes with toys so it was expected.
Lasting impressions: Seems to hold up well, they did not ever sit and chew on it (their choice not mine) but as you can see in the videos, they played a lot of tug with it and it is fully intact. They loved it and are still playing with it so it has held their interest.
Things loved about the product: everything, great design, STURDY, easy to throw, good for playing tug.
Things you would change: due to size of it and the size of my dogs, it did cause one of my dogs to bleed. It sits perfectly behind their canines and I think irritated the gums when playing tug. She didn’t mind though and it didn’t stop her from playing!
Would you recommend it to another dog friend? YES
Does this have a chance of becoming a staple product for your dog? YES
Any product you can compare it to? Yes, but none that have held up this well
Overall grade! 5/5
What is the product name? becoball What type of product? toy, interactive feeding toy Is this being used to solve an issue with your pet? No, but it helps keep them mentally stimulated and work for their food First impressions: good size, easy to clean, seems sturdy, all the dogs were excited to see it especially when I got the treats out to place in it. Lasting impressions: I like it, the dogs all liked it. I have other versions of it so I allowed all the dogs to try it at different times. I like how you can make it harder or easier by placing smaller or larger treats in it. It is very functional for my dogs that aren’t as experienced with interactive toys to the ones that figure out the most difficult ones quickly. Things loved about the product: Everything about it. The shape makes it easy to fill without it rolling all over the place, this was probably my favorite thing about it. It kept my dogs entertained and held up well. Very easy to clean (better than any of the others I have). They liked it as a treat dispenser and to play fetch with. I like how it can have multiple purposes. Things you would change: nothing. Except maybe make it larger (I was given the XL) and I imagine for dogs larger than mine (danes, newfies, etc) that it could be a choking risk. Also, it doesn’t fit a ton of food so my dogs that are on special diets and can’t have treats were able to empty it quickly since I can’t make their kibble larger…not a factor for my dogs that do not have allergies. Would you recommend it to another dog friend? Yes Does this have a chance of becoming a staple product for your dog? Yes, we love interactive toys Any product you can compare it to? Again, yes but not the same materials…I really like what this ball is made with and the shape. Overall grade! 5/5
