My puppy that is now 9 or 10 weeks old becomes really excited when I feed him. When I pick up his bowl to put food in it or if he sees his food and even if I open the fridge. He'll whine, "yell" and jump up on the cupboards and on me. I cannot pick him up or he throws himself around. I've tried putting him in his kennel or playpen until I'm done but he does the same thing. He even gets overly excited when he sees anyone else eating… even if it's just a drink.
He has access to water all day up until 10pm then the water is taken away until 5am. He eats 1/4 cup of Orijen puppy dry food with a tsp of his old food and half a tsp of wet food along with a chunk of sweet potato at dinner (5:30pm) For breakfast and lunch (6:30am and 1:30pm) he gets 1/4 cup of Orijen and a tsp of his old food with a little bit of olive oil. He has never been fed people food or table scraps. He gets unsulfered dried mango as a chew treat and I have tried giving him a carrot but he hasn't liked it. These are foods that aren't fed while I'm eating and haven't ever eaten his dried mangoes... they're only for him.
What should I do so that this problem doesn't become a life long ordeal? I don't want him to get so excited and jump up or whine. I also don't want him begging during meal times and would like a way to have him away from the kitchen without him whining.
