Teaching Your Dog Not to Beg for Food

Teaching Your Dog Not to Beg for Food

Dogs that beg for food do so because it works. Your dog begs and you give him food. Thus the first step in teaching your dog not to beg for food is to stop giving him food when he begs. Insist that all family members and guests follow this same rule. Insist that your dog sits or lies down while you are eating so he is well below the level of your food. You may even need to move him to the other side of the room or another room while you are eating. Consider giving your dog his food in his bowl while you are eating so he gets to eat without the begging. Ignore any whining or nudging, regardless of how annoying it is. Never yell at your dog or punish him while he is learning. Make an appointment with your Jacksonville Beach, FL vet to learn more.
