How do you stop my dog from barking when I am eating? Tips and Tricks

Once you know when and where he is barking, training him to be quiet wont be that hard. In no time at all, you will be able to sit down to a meal or a snack and not have to listen to your dog barking at you.

Each time your dog comes up to you at the table or anywhere else you have food, send him to his bed. This will become his “go-to” place when he misbehaves. When he obeys, give him a treat. You may have to repeat this step multiple times before your pup finally gets the message.

Now that your dog has developed the habit of barking or “asking” for food, you have to break him of this habit. The bad news is that it is far harder to break him of the habit than it was for him to acquire it. The longer you wait, the harder this habit will be to break. The good news is that if you are willing to put in the time and effort to train him, your pup will no longer bark at you every time you have food. The simplest command to use for this is quiet, try not to use anything too complicated as doing so will only serve to confuse your dog and make training him to be that much tougher.

Before you can get started, you need to identify when your dog barks. Is it while you are sitting down to a meal, when you are on the couch with a snack, or when you are trying to feed him? Once you understand the triggers, it will be much easier for you to teach him to stop barking. However, you will need a few things, including:

First, teach your pup to recognize the sound of the clicker or marker word such as “good boy” as a form of praise. Each time you hit the clicker or use the marker word and your dog responds to it, give him a treat, he will soon put two and two together.

Not giving your dog enough food

It’s an honest mistake many dog owners make. You need to make sure your dog is getting food as he gets older. The recommended calorie intake can increase drastically every month a dog gets older. If the dog is hungry, he or she will naturally come to while you are eating and start to bark nonstop.

#4: Lack of training

Begging, even though it might be normal, isn’t a nice way of asking for food. Especially when it’s accompanied by barking and whining.

This might be common in puppies. As they’re still learning or haven’t been trained yet.

So, did you get your dog from a breeder? Or did they belong to another person before you got them?

If yes, they might not have been taught table manners at an early age.

Same with children, they must learn how to behave when it’s mealtime. Without this, they’d think that what they’re doing is right.

Good thing is, you can still change this behavior. So don’t fret. And stick for a bit longer.
