His owner Amber Kennealy, 25, believes her pet’s fear developed after his collar hit the new bowl – making a scary sound.
She said: ‘At first we had a plastic spiral bowl to help slow him down while he was eating to prevent bloating.
‘But he has trouble getting the food out of that bowl, so I got him a regular metal bowl.
‘When I first showed it to him, his collar hit the bowl and made a sound that scared him a little.
‘Then he went crazy and ran around barking at the bowl when I showed it to him.
Ms Kennealy said clever Ace has learnt many important doggy tricks, such as: ‘paw’, ‘kiss’ and ‘heal’
Ms Kennealy said that although clever Ace has learnt many important doggy tricks, such as: ‘paw’, ‘kiss’ and ‘heal’, at first he decided that this new bowl was a step too far.
‘He was being super dramatic and wouldn’t come near it,’ she said. ‘But after a minute of barking he finally tried the new bowl and ended up liking it!
‘He has no problem eating out of the scary new metal bowl now.’
