Well my dog roman will not eat out of his bowl! He is a German sheperd/rotweiller mix (very nice dog). We rescued him from a shelter and from the beginning he was very skittish but has warmed up. THe only thing is that he got scared of his bowls I guess it moved a little and it scared him and know he is too scared to eat out of it. This has happened before but we started putting the food on a mat and he would eat it, but were tired of the mess and bought bowls but he won't eat out of them. We have tried the feeding out of the hand thing but are tired. Please help!
