If you have ever had a dog, you know that all kinds of dogs beg for food. In reality, it doesn’t matter what breed they are. Especially if they get used to getting fed from the table, or just eating human food in general. I mean, come on, it is pretty good (usually).
But dogs begging at or just under the table can get really annoying. Especially if you have guests over who are not used to hungry dogs slobbering all over your leg just for a bite of food.
UK news source Fife Today shared two main ways you can actually retrain your dog to not beg for food at the table. One is by simply not feeding them from the table ever again.

With both of these, as with most dog training, you must be consistent, or else it won’t stick.
Either way, it’ll take a bit to retrain them, especially since there are some dog breeds that are more likely to beg at the table than others.
