How can I stop my dog from begging at the table?
When those sweet brown boxer eyes look up at you, it's hard to resist sharing a piece of your pot roast. Yet begging at the table is one canine habit that can quickly become a nuisance.
If your dog begs, don't give in. You need to ignore the begging 100 percent of the time for the behavior to go away. Make sure your family members and friends do the same. Consistency is key to changing your dog's behavior.
