This is something I have never been able to achieve with my dogs. Mealtime with my dogs is more like a negotiation. If I had a dollar for every time I have uttered the words, “Stop licking my food,” I’d be extremely wealthy. Because I’ve never been able to convince my dogs that this is unacceptable behavior, I have gotten used to eating slightly soggy food with a side of doggy germs. If I happen to turn my back on my meal for even a second, I’m lucky if I have anything left to eat at all.
The dog in this video, Dinky the Great Dane, also refuses to let his owner eat in peace. He isn’t as deliberate as my dogs and doesn’t touch the delicious looking sandwich without permission, but he certainly lets everyone in the room know that he doesn’t approve of being left out of the snacking session. Unlike the homes with perfectly trained pooches, Dinky’s house gets a little noisy at dinner time.
