Along with trying different types of bowls and locations, I can think of a couple more things you can try. First, is the bowl on a hard surface? If so try putting a mat under it -- my dog was starting to play with his dishes but he stopped after I got a non-stick mat and put it under there. Also, they sell raised bowl holders that keep the bowls in place (supposed to help with bloat) -- those might help as well.
Or, you could try a bowl that is attached or anchored somehow -- like I have a crate bowl that fastens to the crate door. You might be able to adpat something like that to kitchen use. If all else fails you could try teaching him to drink from a water bottle like rabbits use -- they do sell them in doggie sizes. (My dog was absolutely petrified of the bottle for some reason, but I know other dogs are OK with using them.)
