Dogs have acutely tuned hearing as well as razor sharp appetites.

Normally, when dogs hear their bowls being rattled during dinner preparation, a Pavlovian chorus of barking and yapping ensues.

Today’s invention aims to limit that by training each dog to respond only to the appearance of his/her particular bowl.

This is achieved by making dog bowls with a tuning fork cut into the side wall.

Each bowl would have a name printed on the side, as well as a fork tone unique to that dog.

A dog owner can flick the tuning fork and alert only one dog that their dinner is en route.

This can be used as a training aid in the same way as personalised whistles are applied.
