Preventing Your Dog From Begging at the Table


Dogs beg for food because it works. Your dog begs and you give him food. Thus the first step in preventing your dog from begging at the table is to stop giving your dog food when he begs. Ensure that family members and friends follow this same procedure. Insist that your dog sits or lies down while you are eating so he is well below the level of the table. You may need to move your dog across the room or even to another room to better ignore the whining during mealtime. Consider feeding your dog his food from his bowl while you are eating so he gets the food without the begging. Praise your dog when he makes it through a meal without begging. Never yell at your dog or punish him while he is learning. Be patient since discouraging undesired behavior can take some time. For more information, contact your Moorpark, CA veterinarian.
