I'd try to experiment with a few things. I'd get him hungry first. Play the whinnying noise and then treat treat treat. Play it again and treat treat treat. If he didn't take food because of high anxiety I'd try lowering the volume. If that didn't work I'd either wait till he got hungrier and try again, or using higher value food rewards I'd amp him up ahead of time to where he wanted it really bad then play that noise and give it to him right after it played. Might take a bit of trial and error at first to produce positive results.
