Frank's pretty reliable about not being an rear end over food. I can leave a plate of food within easy reach, not a problem.

Having a border collie is like cheating at dog training. I rarely did much outside of standard sit, stay, stop, pound it, etc. The most I might have done at the time was let him outside while I ate, put him in the crate (really young yet, like, 4 months), or leash him to a piece of furniture where he could watch me eat but not get close enough to bother until I brought him food.

I put a baby gate up at the bathroom door because he'd scratch at the door if I closed it for a shower or a poo poo.

Sure, they're visually impressive, but a lot of posters find large avatars physically uncomfortable. Furthermore, the owners of large avatars often rely on their size alone and don't bother to develop more refined posting techniques.

If your dog begs for food, your dog likes food. That means food may be your dog's motivator.

When your dog eats, does he/she go crazy for dinner? If so, then your job is so easy. When you prepare the dog's food and place the bowl on the ground, make him/her sit. If your dog moves, pick the bowl up and make them sit again. Rinse and repeat until they sit and don't go after the bowl as soon as you place it on the ground. And I mean right in front of them or within just a few feet. Once you have this accomplished, step one is complete.

Once you have that down, make them sit in a well defined place (for example, my kitchen -- where Monty eats -- is tile and the next room is carpet, so the carpet is a well defined place). Make them sit there while you put the bowl down while giving a specific command for that particular spot (I started out by telling Monty to "sit on the carpet"). If they move, pick the bowl up and make them sit back down at the well defined place. Rinse and repeat until it is successful.

Once you do this for a while (took me a couple of weeks total), you will easily be able to tell the dog to "go get on the carpet" (in my case) when other people are eating.

Don't be a dick and hold their food hostage for like three hours while training them to do this or something crazy. I worked with Monty for maybe five minutes a night at most. Even a little progress is worth rewarding.

If food is your dog's motivator, you can use it to train them to do anything.

I always grew up in a home that strictly disciplined begging. The idea being if you reward them for begging, they'll try it on guests as well, and guests might not be comfortable with that. I always felt bad about it but it was just the way it was.
We never give food while we eat, and the kitchen + eating areas are invite-only. After we're done with food they get invited in to clean plates, get treats, etc. Best of both worlds.

And this a million times. It's better if you provide another reward (click, good boy, etc) so you can positively reinforce behaviour whenever you don't happen to have treats around.

Someone abandoned her so my fiancee's work picked her up. Her paw was so heavily matted that it cut off the circulation to the paw and so they had to amputate it. Fiancee has done work on animal prosthetics so they fit her for one and now it's the coolest thing.

we have a rule

one pic for each dog

now, it doesn't necessarily need to be one dog per pic. but if you have two dogs, you have to post two pictures, even if both dogs are in both pictures.

i just made this rule, but i am making it a rule.
