Why your dog begs at the dinner table

Your dog may have a full bowl of food at his disposal, but he will still beg for a bite from your plate. Why does he beg at the dinner table?

Your dog needs to be able to eat when he is hungry and offering him a satisfying food that will meet his nutritional needs is a great way to do this. However, there will still be some interest in what you’re eating. Your pet may be able to see and smell the food on your plate and he will want to try some. This means that your pet will have a desire to munch on what you have simply because it is something different and he feels that begging will cause you to offer him some. Luckily, ignoring the urge to share should teach him that his efforts won’t be rewarded. For more information, please contact your local Bolingbrook, IL vet clinic.
