    Default Discourage begging?

    I have a new pup, will be 12 weeks old in 2 days. How do I go about discouraging scavenging and begging?

    When my kids eat at the table she goes under the table looking for food while they are eating, if im eating she comes up to me and is obnoxious. I have just been crating her and then she starts barking. Anyone have any techniques that will allow her to be out of the crate without being annoying?

    Leon is a very bad beggar I try to ignore him, he barks but soon gets fed up. Also feed ur pup at the same time you eat that as helped us.

    Teach/train her to stay out of the kitchen while you are eating.... place her in a room in a stay and train her to stay. Eventually she will know not to be in the room when you are having a meal. HOWEVER, everyone in the house must do this every time you/they eat otherwise it will not work

    We timed Harlea's meal times around ours so she is in her crate eating while we are eating breakfast and dinner. At lunch when I am eating if she starts to beg I make her lie down and stay. It took us a long time to get to that point but it gets better each and every day, but if she is being really bull headed that day i will just pull out one of her antlers and she will go to the other side of the room and just chomp away.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    I taught Bifi to sit about a foot or two away when we eat in a place accessible to him. We often times watch a movie while eating and eat at the sofa. At the beginning he got plenty enough treats when he does it, now he would away whether or not he gets treats from us. he doesn't get treats most of the times now and when he doesn't, he would still stay there or get bored and play or get bored and sleep.
