Stare all you want as long as you aren't....touching, crowding, whining, barking etc..
I occasionally tell him to buzz off and he does because even the far away wistful staring can get annoying.

The only time he WHINES at me is when I'm eating peanut butter sandwiches or yogurt which is 100% my fault because I always share with him...

Tucker doesn't beg from me or mom, we don't feed him while we eat. I don't care if he watches though, even if he's close. But he rarely does this, he knows nothing will come of it. He begs super bad from my dad though. Only when we eat in the living room, because those are the sort of meals he feeds him from. We eat pizza in the living room and dad gives him his crust. Dad eats ice cream in the living room and lets Tucker lick his bowl when he's done. So Tucker sits and stares at dad while he eats and then when dad is getting to the end of his slice/bowl Tucker starts whining, sneezing, slapping his paws on the ground, letting out the occasional bark. I have absolutely no desire to stop it, it's dad's fault. If he wants to stop it he can. Tucker shouldn't be eating pizza and ice cream anyway.


But if I did have a dog who begged from me even though I didn't feed him from my plate I would be okay with staring, air sniffing, even putting a paw on me. But no noise, no poking, no scratching. Basically no behaviors I dislike in general.

LOL, Juno has a downfall too. Apples. The only time she even cares that someone has food is if they're eating an apple. Then she's at your feet drooling. Which is gross but eh... it's the monster that's been created. She knows she always gets the core.

Smiley will lay quietly under the table during dinner, but will usually sit and stare at you if you snack on the couch.

I don't mind as long as he is quiet and not touching.

Haha, I share popcorn too, and that's when his begging is at its worst.

My dogs are crated when people eat.

Frodo will take food right off your plate, given the opportunity.

I didn't want another Frodo, so Siri is crated when we eat. When she's out, she doesn't bother people with food, for the most part. And you can tell her to go away, and she will.

Jackson is bad, but mostly with my dad. He's learned my dad will give in and ALWAYS give him something really good when he acts obnoxiously, so yeah he's a horrible begger with him. With me, he usually sits close, and often stares, but doesn't do any whining/pawing/etc, maybe an occasional sigh or whine if it's something realllyyy good like meatloaf.

I don't even mind when he lays his head down on my shoulder as he's laying on the top of the couch, or on my leg laying next to me. As long as his face is not physically near my plate, I don't care. He's good with 'leave it' for the most part, so I can tell him that and he won't touch my food. He always knows I'm going to share with him at some point anyway.

When we're outside on the deck/patio, he's so used to being able to climb on the picnic tables that he thinks that is what they are for. So it's not uncommon for me to be eating and him be laying on the table with the food, lol.

Begging is my on my low list of priorities. It really doesn't bother me. I won't let him do it to other people though besides the family we live with and those who enable him.

Couple pictures of "normal" Jubel behavior around us eating. Neither of us care if he watches and he'll back up if we ask when he gets too close.



Jubel sitting with my brother, distracted by me momentarily and previous foster boy Tony keeping a close eye on the food.


Watching and drooling in my lap as I munch on tuna salad and crackers
