We’ve all experienced it during mealtime. Our dogs and cats won’t stop jumping on us or wining to get a taste of the food on the table. Are they actually hungry or is it they just can’t resist?
As pet parents, we know the importance of correct feeding portions and the harm that can be caused by overfeeding and the wrong kinds of foods. That’s why it’s important to eliminate this begging behavior, or, at the very least, not enforce it. Here are a couple of tips to mitigate the situation:
1.) Stop letting guests and household members feed your pet table scraps during meals. This will only make the situation worse and can negatively effect your pet’s health.
2.) Train your pet by telling them to “go to their mat” or some other area during mealtime. It’s best to still have them nearby so they can feel like they’re “participating” without actually eating.
It’s best to combine these two efforts to put a stop to begging. At PURELUXE Pet Food, we know the importance of pure nutrition and what’s in your pet’s food.
