They get all freaked out and usually stay off the counter for awhile. My dogs lick the coffee table though too, no matter what, and it does get annoying but I just say no and usually they will stop. If they don't I will growl a no at them and usually then they will stop.
No Julie he doesn't jump on the counter. His nose reaches the top of the dinner table and of course the coffee table without having to jump up.

Thanks to all of you for the advice and help

Does your dog know the down-stay command? If not, I would train him on this ASAP. If you put him on a down-stay on his bed or away from the coffe table while you're eating, then he cannot beg. If at first he keeps getting up, I would leash him while he's on a down-stay and tie the leash to a sturdy piece of furniture or a weight. Pretty soon he'll learn that begging is not allowed and will settle down quietly while you eat.
