Default very annoyed with my husband - he's training Kylie to harass him while eating

Kylie wasn't bothering any of us while eating, but my husband LOVES to feed dogs from his plate. It took YEARS for me to get him to stop feeding most of his food to our golden. He finally stopped because she was getting very overweight due to all the food he kept giving her.

Now he encourages Kylie to harass him while eating by giving her little nibbles of his food while he's eating. Then he gets mad when she keep harassing him. So he gives her another nibble. And then he gets madder that she harasses him even more.

I really do wish my husband was as easy to train as Kylie is. It's very easy to just NOT feed your dog from your plate, but he seems to find it absolutely irresistible.

When we visit my parents we lock the dogs on the screened in porch while we eat because my father loves feeding them from the table. If your husband doesn't want to cooperate remove the dog from the area.

are you sure that isn't MY husband? LOL

Does the same thing, drives me NUTS, my dogs do not beg, but they sure will with him because he feeds them or saves them a "little",,then if he's not in the 'mood', he'll tell them NO go LAY DOWN

I'm like, "STOP FEEDING THEM and they wont sit there drooling all over the place"..Men don't get it((

I'd love to spray my husband with a squirt bottle.

I think I'll just have to put her in her crate every time he eats though. I don't want him encouraging her to jump on us for our food and if she is out while he is eating, he will encourage it.

I would give him his plate with dog food on it and tell him to feed it form the table.... and offer his dinner in the dog bowl (make sure it is safe for Kyleigh to eat, in case she accesses it).
Good luck training your husband.

tell your husband not to feed the dog from the table.
train your dog to take the food when you're at the table
to it's bed or another room to eat it.

Hi,

I have to admit that I am the guilty party in our household . However, I did train Riley to lay quietly near my chair for table scraps. So, he does not beg! He lays down near my chair and gets rewarded for that with a tasty treat every now and then... actually, probably a lot more than every now and then. I am not a big meat-eater so I am more than willing to share what I have .
