Dog OCD about food

Does anyone have any tips for handling a dog that is obsessed with food?  My dog is constantly in food mode, no matter where he is.  If he is outside, he is eating what ever he can, and when ever food is around, he cant focus on anything else.  Any thoughts on how I can try an break this habit?

I think that's just part of being a dog.  You could try putting him on a place, or laying down position, when food is around.  After you are done easting, give him a release command and then give a treat.  This might help teach your dog that he has to wait, and if he does, then he will get food.
