Dogs definitely can look terribly cute and be very enthralling when they beg.
They look at you with their loving eyes, how can you say no? The problem is, they are not looking at you with love, they’re looking at your food. If you give in to your begging dog, you will never again be well placed to eat a meal in peace.
To stop a dog from begging you have got to be firm. The tips below will help you to stop dog begging at your home.
The first thing for you to do isn’t feel guilty. Dont give in to your dog because they’re cute and cause you to feel guilty. You are doing them a favor by being consistent and not feeding them your food while you eat. If you do feel the need to give your dog leftovers, do not do it from the dining table. Instead put the food in the dogs bowl.
Be cruel to stop dog begging. Tell your dog in a firm voice that begging isn’t satisfactory. If that is not enough, you can try and employ a shake can.
If you cannot stop your dog from begging with these methods, you may have to put your dog in another room, or outside when you eat. You must never give in to the dogs barking and let the dog back in the room you’re eating in.
Ultimately, the dog will learn that it can stay in the room if it doesn’t beg.
If you definitely must sneak your dog food when you eat, make it a healthy snack. Give your dog a plain piece of lettuce, or a carrot. Your dog will either enjoy the vegetable, or will quickly learn that begging is not rewarding for the food he or she wants. That’s’s practicing good natural pet care.
If all else fails, you may need more resources in particular dog training.
