Hi guys

Were having a problem with bongo whenever the wife and I sit to eat all he does is bark constantly we have tried giving him a stern NO! but that seems to make things worse he's 11 weeks old now any help or advice would be greatly appreciated

I know that feeling. You don't think the "No" is working, but it is.. It just takes time! When Lex got overexcited one of use took her too the kitchen to calm her down!

Persistence is the key... It will pay off eventually!

Good luck :)

I'd stick him in another room and shut the door as soon as he starts.

He'l get over doing it. typical puppy faze. oobviously don't feed him tip bits when you're eating ?!

I'd ignore him pick him up and put in his bed shut the door and ignore him the more you say no he's getting attention so may do it more and dont give titbits from your plate ''flowers''

He never gets fed any scraps or anything I'm really strict with him it's dog food or no food for him I'll give shutting him out a try I have done it once before but when he finally calmed down I realised he had messed in quite a few places just out of sheer petulance!

What about a stair gate, so he can still see you and you can see what he is doing, then if he starts barking you can just push the door to. Just an idea, Thinking>..

Dont look at him ever when you are eating,dont give him any reaction whatsoever not even a "No" if any of you will give in,he will know who to go to first to pester ( I could sit next to Dodge on the sofa with most awesome smelling food,Bob would look or talk to him and he d be there like a shot!)
If he barks at you,get up and walk out of the room . . .no looking at him,ignore him totally, go back and carry on eating,he WILL learn,but you all have to be on the same page ''flowers''
