^^^^^THIS!^^^^^

my dog was barking and growling when he was eating. I googled this and landed here. Turns out he was eating out of a new aluminum metal dish. I read this and took it away and switched the dish to a ceramic bowl and he stopped growling, barking and ate. Thanks for your reply because it helped!!

Have any of you tried feeding your dogs on a small rug or something else that isn't hard? (a dishcloth, small towel, etc)

We had a small dog that was terrified of any kind of bowls and plates and I finally found that feeding her on one of those rubber hot plate thingys, ((https://www.amazon.com/Premium-Silic...=rubber+trivet)) made her a happy pooch. She was even nervous to drink from a bowl, (stretched towards it), but that couldn't be helped.

Yes ok, some of our friends said that this was a spoiled dog, but if you were afraid to eat from something, wouldn't you be happier eating from something that wasn't scary?

Does her tag dangle and hit the water bowl? I had a Pom years ago that suddenly started showing an aversion to drinking from his bowl. It is easily solved with a tag silencer.

This is why my dog refuses to eat or drink from a metal dish! The clinking sound scares him, plus his tag got stuck one time, making a sound he couldn't escape... ever since then, he HAS to eat off ceramic or plastic dishes.

FYI: The thread was started in 2009, and the dog was already 11 years old. So sadly, I assume this little guy (the OP's pug) has since crossed the bridge. Hopefully they solved the mystery, though!

Do you know what to do if your pug does not stop barking at his biscuits and his sister when she wants to eat because our house needs help
All we hear is bark bark bark it is so annoying. We can’t hear ourselves think!!臘*♀️領
We love him so much but it gets tiring.

As for rjgonsalves get the dog spray that sends a high pitched sound and stops barking. Ours just carries on barking but my aunt bought it for her pug and it worked. So get pets at home dog spray it’s quite cheap 10 pounds for a big bottle.

You may find you can interrupt barking without needing to buy anything. Get a metal can and put small rocks, screws, nails, or other small hard things you happen to have round the house inside. Put a lid on the can. When the dog starts unwanted barking, shake the can! It will probably startle the dog or at least distract him from whatever he's doing. An empty dog food can with one of those plastic replacement lids works great for this...and it's sort of appropriate!
