maybe there is a reflection of herself and it startles her.
Maybe move them away from the nearest window or door to lessen the light hitting the bowl. Maybe her tags are also banging againist the bowl try to take the collar off in the house if needed.

Try non-chlorinated water for a day and see if this helps. Maybe your pooch knows the chlorine is going to give it a heart failure, but is thirsty and wants the contaminants out of the water.
