Before you can teach your dog to stop begging for food, you have to start with more basic dog obedience training steps, such as “sit” and “lie down. Once your dog has mastered sitting, next ask your dog to lie down to receive these treats. Eventually, your dog will have these dog obedience commands mastered, and you can use the “lie down” command for when your family is at the dinner table

Table food is very tempting to your pet, so you’ll need to keep up the training to get your dog to stop begging for food and lie down during mealtime. The key is consistency and rewarding good behavior instead of bad.
