No Table Scraps - Only feed your dog the meals he’s supposed to receive in the proper, veterinarian-recommended amounts. Do not give him treats from the table or your leftovers, and ensure your guests follow the same rules.
Feed Your Pets While You Eat - Syncing your meal times makes it easier to avoid a begging dog and to stick with your new commitment to giving your pet only the food he’s supposed to have.
Set New Rules - Tell your dog “No” when he tries to beg for scraps. Keep him out of the kitchen while you cook. And stay consistent in enforcing these rules. No exceptions. Remember: Your pet’s life is on the line. You have to be smarter and stronger than he is. It’s also important to remember one core truth: Dogs and cats need exercise every day. If your dog isn’t getting 45 minutes of play time in the yard or at the park, you’re increasing the difficulty on controlling his weight. Besides, a quick jog with the dog is good for both of you, so why not make it a habit?
