We all beg from time to time, for a cookie, a pat on the head
or just plain old fashioned belly rubbing attention.
There is an art to it you know. I have many techniques.
Plus it helps if your people are softies like mine.
First step is to make sure you are not annoying but endearing to your people.
This is very important or you might be banished from the table or treats
so remember to keep the begging to a minimum. Less is more, more or less.
1. Use your best sorrowful eyes. The eyes are the windows to your peoples souls.
Mine melt at the puppy dog eyes treatment. I practice this look quite often.

2. Smack your lips a bit to show just how mouthwatering
that treat or affection is to you.
This should do the trick.
4. If not. Pull out one of your best tricks.
The rollover, the paw shake or the doggie two legged dance.

Remember the most important part of begging is
to reward your people with that charming smile
at the end to let them know that you are pleased
with the trick they performed for you.
