Dog standing under table

what in the world does this mean? Is it a crate substitute?

sometimes both of our dogs get underneath.. but that seems as tho it becomes a question of who will REMAIN under the table... ie, a form of domination, or am I wrong?

other times this happens, it's when my bf is making/eating food that is NOT for the dogs... Chocolate often goes under the table and either looks at him or at the floor awaiting food to drop...

same thing may happen when I'm at the computer, these two rascals get underneath where all the cables and plug are. (YES, Honey has turned off the computer a few times already )

my puzzling Q is what's so special about a table?


or is this a behavioural problem?

That's probably the answer. If food fell to the floor even once, they have learned to wait for it to fall again!

I don't allow my dog in the dining room when we are eating, no matter how pitiful she looks!

yaaaaaaaaaaaaaa but what's he thinking he's gonna get if he goes under the compute table?

I tell him to come out... I've always done that.

Yes, sometimes I hug him for coming to me & he may be seeing that as praise for being under the table.... riiiiight?

darn, Honey's doing it too now, I thought it was some sort of secret behaviour in dogs...




but ... I've only created a problem?
