Welcome to my first edition of -
Training tips with the sibe tribe.
I have always had quite a bit of interest in my dog training related posts, so this is the first in my new official series.
I have decided to start small, so this post will be short, simple and sweet!
I see this question a lot -
How do I teach my dog to stop begging?
The begging I am referring to, is when the family sits down to a lovely dinner, and you look over only to see your dog(s) staring and drooling at your plate while you try and eat.
This doesn't bother some people, but for some, it does.
Personally, I am not overly bothered by it, but "the man of the house" does not like having the dogs in the dining room while we eat.
For me, the solution is simple.
My huskies wait in the kitchen on their beds while we eat.
They all know the stay command well, and when it's dinner time, I ask them to stay and we go eat. Simple. But what about dogs who refuse to stay? Or those who don't have the option of keeping their dogs in the kitchen during dinner?
Teach the "bed" command.
I will go into more detail about the bed command on a future training post, but the idea is to train your dogs to go lay in their beds when it's dinner time. This is easier than you might think, I promise!
It is much easier teaching "bed" than it is to teach a dog not to look at you while you eat.
Stay tuned for my next training post where I will go further into teaching "bed."

How about you kitties out there? Any beggars?
