I've started working on wait and he's learning.
The other idea is to just start a new business: Begging Puppy Diet. I'll rent Kaiser out to people who need help with their diet. Every time they go to eat he'll start whining and squealing until you share with him. He's like the IRS and thinks you should give him half of whatever you're having. I'm pretty confident this would help people.

|Lilie||While Hondo will not beg - he will lay flat out in your path so when you get up from table you will not forget he is there. Just in case you have scrap or two you'd like to share.|

|kiya||None of my dogs beg at dinner, Kiya must lay at my feet just in case something might hit the ground. This kitty is hubby's and of course he thinks he's soooo cute, just as long as they don't teach MY dogs bad behavior!|

|kiya||We always say "all good things come to puppy dogs that wait". My husband is the worst, my rule is nothing for critters until we are done. Last night I finished eating, got up then I looked and there was hubby giving the new kitten a taste of meatloaf.|

Over the weekend we made home made mac & cheese. I generally don't eat carbs, but will make exceptions (you'd have to be a zombie to skip out on this stuff). There were left overs and I had some for breakfast. I'm in my office reading and Kaiser is sitting staring and making a mess with the drool. There was a little left and I figured 'why not?' he's been good.
He likes mac & cheese. He really likes mac & cheese. Actually to be precise: he likes whatever I'm eating.
Today I had some left over chicken for lunch. He's sitting by me making a huge fuss. You would think I starved him and deprived him given the amount of whining and crying coming out of him. Back and forth from one side to the other. Whine whine whine squeal. What a big baby!
You would think given the amount of stuff I've read and the amount of research I've invested in to training over the past few months I'd know better....not really.
Am I going to do anything about this? Not really. The only issue is that he must not actively try to take food from others. When we first got him he took a slice of pizza from my wife as she was eating it! That is a definitely 'nope, not in this house' behavior. The whining stuff...I can tolerate it by ignoring it.
The boxers already have it figured out. They know that if there is something yummy left over they'll get a taste. They just sit patiently in the background waiting. Kaiser will learn too.
