I have a 4yr old pomeranian/chihuahua. He's always been a bit nervous and sensitive even though he has never endured any kind of trauma or abuse in his life... In fact he's treated like an absolute princess. Over the last few months he seems to have developed a phobia of his food bowl. He's extremely sensitive to noise such as cutlery on plates, he will flinch at every noise and freak out. So we thought it was the noise his tag made clinking on the bowl. But even after removing his collar he won't go near the bowl. It's not the food because as soon as we hand feed it to him he will gobble it up, he is just terrified to go anywhere near his bowl. We've put the bowl on different surfaces incase it slid along the tiles, changed the bowls, brought his bowl in so he can eat with us, nothing works. Wondering is anyone knows why he might have developed this fear and how we can fix it?
