HUGE no no. You may lay or sit next to me but no looking or smelling. Can't handle that? Go away.

Begging with eyes is fine with me. Once in a while Roxie will go as far as to put her head in my lap and give me the puppy dog eyes, and at that point she gets told to go lay down.

As long as he isn't stealing my food it's all good. He'll sit very close ready to pounce on any morsel I might drop. If I'm eating something he can't have then I make him back up and I'm careful to not drop any crumbs.

He can NOT be trusted to not steal unattended food so it's a management game and I'm okay with that.

My new foster is horrible now that he has some confidence enough to get on the couch. Now he has to be crated or put in my room most of the time I eat. He will go after my food with all he's got now. After two or three times of holding him off with one hand on his collar and a leg bent to body block him we've gone to management. He spilled hot soup on me as the last straw. Need to work on him actually learning sit and down before letting him around tempting food. Hoping he'll do better when he actually knows some commands and can be rewarded for listening.

Begging eyes are ok, barking/pawing/other obnoxious behavior is not ok. Crystal doesn't beg do anything obnoxious to anyone but my grandma, whom gives her food every time.

I don't care what they do as long as they aren't attempting to take my food.

None of them actually beg though, now that I think on it. They're usually all off doing their own thing when we're eating. Juno usually lays on the rug in the kitchen when we eat but I don't think it has anything to do with food, I think she just does it because that's where we are.

One of those things I don't care about in the slightest. No one is snatching any thing, so don't care. Watch me eat, knock yourself out.

They can do whatever they want short of trying to actually eat the food from my plate/silverware or going on my lap. So usually Bubbles lays somewhere, Kimma lays somewhere else, and Jari lays at my feet. If they are doing a nice job of being normal dogs they will get rewarded with pieces of whatever I'm eating if it's dog friendly. Jari still has some trouble with my eating at the coffee table, so I will sometimes just put him in another room. The girls are fine. Kimma only gets annoying around Justin when he eats pretzels. Girl loves her pretzels.

Hey Ruffian....I don't know if I could pretend to nap, I think I'd try a 'grab and run' 'cause it looks yummy! LOL

I didn't have any set expectations, and it is interesting to see the wide range of allowances on begging.

As long as they aren't actually touching me or my food I don't care what they do or where they are.
