Have you fed him table food before? If so, he must've liked it and wants more! It will be hard breaking this habit, try putting baby fences around the trash, and move the dog into another room when you eat. (this is just a patch, its not habit breaking sadly T~T)

The problem is his owners not him! If you would properly train,exercise and set rules, boundaries, limitations for the dog you would not have those problems.

First NEVER feed your dog table food on purpose. In fact whenever you're eating breakfast, lunch or dinner I suggest keeping the dog in a different room and eventually training the dog to stay in a different room while you eat without you having to separate him completely. Whenever he takes food out of your hand or does something he's not supposed to do and you catch him in the act you must scold him. A harsh noise or clapping your hands real loud or something along those lines could do the trick. If you have to forcibly take it from him then do that, don't let him get away with it. It sounds like he's not really being trained. Another suggestion is don't keep his food bowl full. Feed him once or twice a day. Dogs shouldn't have 24/7 access to food they need a meal regimen. So in the morning feed him and in the afternoon feed him or something like that. He just needs to be trained and if you aren't willing to put in the effort then nothing is going to change.

Crate him while you're eating. Lots of issues to deal with here, but that would be my first move! Crates are not cruel, any more than a playpen or crib is to a baby. :) These are denning animals. You're giving him a safe, relaxing place while your family gets a break.

Your dog is untrained. First of all, don't leave the food down all day. Feed the 2 times a day on a schedule, then he'll eat what you put down. Second, take out take out the garbage. If there's no food in there, then he won't knock it down to get to it. Train the dog. Not dogs fault it's obnoxious, it's the humans fault for not training it.

train him by feeding him only on TIME (twice a day) and by MEASURED cups only and make sure there is always fresh water, you will need to put him in a holding cage or a fenced in area where he cannot get food. you will have to have the patience and will for him to learn.

No such thing as an old English pocket Beagle. you have an ill bred BYBer mongrel. One that isn't trained at all

Beagles love to eat! It's just the breed. He also might simply be bored too, or want something to chew on. Buy him bones and appropriate things to chew on. Put the trash in a place that he can't reach it to break him of the habit.
