Teaching your dog to refrain from begging for food

Your dog loves when it’s time for a meal, and he doesn’t really care if he is eating his own meal or if he can get a bite of yours. How can you teach him not to beg at the dinner table?

Your pet needs to be able to get his share of nutritious food to keep him healthy. Fortunately, this can be offered to your pet through his regular diet. To get him to stop begging for your food at the table, you simply need to ignore the behavior. Offering her a bite or some attention rewards his efforts and makes it more likely that he will keep them up. Ignoring him will help him see that this behavior doesn’t pay off and in time he will begin to take part in other activities. For more information, please contact your local Fayetteville NC Veterinary clinic.
