Begging is a very big problem among many people when it comes to their dogs and the thing that makes them most angry. This is a very complex problem which many people have trouble finding answers to. Some people have never given their dog food from the table ever in the dogs life but the dogs still begs. Other people always give their dog food from the table and it does not beg at all. It just lays on what type of dog you have and the makeup up the dog. But, there are ways in which you can teach any dog not to bed no matter what the makeup of it is.
If you are determined to break this bad habit, it can be done although it may be tough. Dogs are not able to differentiate between what they are allowed to eat, and what they are not allowed to eat. So if you’re used to giving your some of your steak during dinner, don’t be surprised if the dog snatches it from one of your guests you have invited over for dinner.
Feeding him the food from the table can actually be harmful to your dog, so it certainly is not recommendable for those people who do. One way to combat this begging problem is by taking it out of the room at meal times. Do not let him see you while you are eating. Give him something during this time to distract him like a toy. You will have to ignore its whining and crying if this happens. Just remember that if you want to break this habit, you will have to keep tough.
The thing to do with dogs is start training them for this early in their lives. The only to make a habit it by starting it early in life, so just do not feed it food from the table and it will not want to food. The reason for the begging is that dogs get used to receiving food from the table so they beg in exchange for more. But if the dogs are never given food from the table, then the dog will not expect it in return. If the begging problem still goes on, then just scold your dog each time it tries to beg and that then should end the problem.
