Coffee is also bad for dogs as the caffeine can increase the chances of a seizure. . How do you keep your dog from begging for food?. One tip is to feed it at the same time you sit down to eat. Another is to have provide your dog with some playtime right before the meal. . This will lead your pet to get tired and lie down instead of bothering you for food.
