In order to supply you with an informed answer, it is necessary for me to collect some additional information from you.

Are you saying he is scared of his own food bowl?

He is scared of plastic bags?

You have had him since he was a little pup?

What breed is he?

How much obedience training have you done with him?

Does he have any known medical issues?

Is he neutered?
