Why your dog begs for food
Your dog is a big part of your life and you are happy to share your home with him. However, there are some things that you’d like to keep to yourself, like your food at mealtime. Why does he tend to beg for food when you are eating?
Your pet tries to get a bite of whatever you are eating because he thinks you will offer him some when he makes it apparent that he would like a taste. Giving him a piece of food from your plate only reinforces this idea, so it’s important to refrain from doing so if his begging bothers you. Your pet instinctually takes advantage of any and all food sources that are available to him, and he thinks that you might offer him some of your meal so he figures it’s worth a try.
