They can sit by my feet and look, but no noise, no pawing and no shaking.

I keep Gusto from actually licking anything, but have a hard time preventing him from using his hands to try and grab stuff off your plate.

Sometimes he just sits next to you and growls.

He actually really only begs from my mother, because she allows it and feeds him. The dogs do sit next to the table or lay under it when we are eating, but Meg won't make a peep, and Gusto is generally okay. If we have company over, I put a leash on him and put my foot on it, just because I don't trust him to be super polite, and I don't let them bother other people.

But with just us? The rules are looser.

We don't usually eat in the dining room, it's normally in the living room. Hudson....well....if he isn't trying to actively steal the food off of my plate/out of my bowl, or from my silverware it's all good. Sometimes he sits behind me and rests his head on my shoulder.

On the other hand, he doesn't bother my husband at all, so.....

I don't allow it if I can help it. Buzz was put away for human meal times nearly his whole life. Management was my game.

Bailey and Gabby were pretty much born perfect around food. Both girls could leave food alone as long as it's not on the floor. Even food on a low coffee table is off limits. They are expected to ignore me while I'm eating.

HOWEVER, I have this boyfriend who thinks it's hilarious to feed Gabby from his plate. So she begs from him.

No touching, no noise. I don't care if they hang around.

This. I don't really care how "close" they are as long as they are doing their own thing. They aren't allowed in the kitchen (which is where the dining room table is, in a nook). We work opposite shifts so the kitchen is only used on the weekends. I eat on the couch and either way, they are playing with toys or sleeping nearby but no active begging allowed.

ONE EXCEPTION. I grew up with this rule and all my dogs know it. They always get popcorn. Always. LOL They'll all line up at the threshold of the kitchen when it's popping and they hop around when I bring it into the living room. I sprinkle a bit on the floor for everyone and then they need to leave me alone the rest of the time. This is usually 50/50 on success since they know they get some lol

I hate begging, but toward the end (his last six months or so) Mammoth would put his head in my armpit while I ate and would periodically get spoonfuls of whatever I was having. The other dogs have to be minding their own business or I will ask them to "beat it" (that is, get out of my general vicinity and lie down somewhere).

Feist doesn't even really try. She'll hang with me while I'm eating, staring at me creepily, but hey, she also does that all the time anyway. Wesley is a horrible beggar, buuuut it's not his fault and we are amused by it and so yes, he ends up making poodle distress noises and usually gets some food out of the deal.

I like to dog

No. Dogs lay on the floor or go on the staircase while I eat.
