Teach him to go mat and place the mat where it is convenient for you. Only feed him on the mat.

Conversely, put him under the table where you cannot see him looking at you.

Behavior & Training > Names that Sound too Similar
Jessie

It's usually a good idea to change a dog's name when they change homes. Some say it leaves behind any baggage the dog may have. My current two have similar names and wish I would have changed one of them. Jessie & Lucy sounds very similar when spoken loud or fast. I constantly get both dogs coming when I only want one. For example going through a door, I want one to stay and one to come etc. I have to point to them most times to get who I want. My previous dogs had two very different sounding names and we didn't have this issue.

Here is a great checklist of things that a puppy needs to be exposed to before she turns 12 weeks old if you want her to be a well-rounded bomb proof dog in public and for life.

Behavior & Training > Really clingy it's getting annoying

Clingy is common in newly rehomed dogs. it can take some dogs 6 mos or longer to adjust to a new home. If you start to see other behaviors that may indicate he is anxious when left alone (such as barking, scratching, peeing, destroying things) look into 'separation anxiety'. A good positive reinforcement trainer can help you work through it in increments that won't stress the dog out.
Good luck!

Raw Food Diet > Dog pooping too much

Jessie

It's hard to say without more details. How much are you feeding? 2-3% of his ideal body weight. If so, that should be the correct range assuming he is an average level of energy dog. How much fat are you feeding? More can cause him to need to eliminate more frequently.
If he is gaining weight, it means he's getting too much. Too much bone will add volume as it is the form of fibre the raw fed dogs get.
