This is a bad cell phone pic of my greyhound Beacon (my cell phone fails miserably at long distances). A couple of months ago, he developed a fear of his raised feeder. We tried every lure and manipulation imaginable for the first few weeks then decided it was far less stressful (for us more than him, although him too) to put his food dish on the floor and let him lie down and dine at his leisure.
He has no problem drinking water out of the raised feeder, however.
Yeah, I don’t know either.
