Is There a Thief in Your McHenry County House?
Many clients have a four-legged robber in their McHenry County home. Those of you with dogs that are more than 6 inches off the ground probably don’t worry about what we call counter surfing. Some pets steal from the kitchen counters with food being number one and paper products second. We’ve even seen dogs that can pick pockets!
Robbery happens from cocktail tables and sometimes even grabbing food from someone’s hand. Another favorite is robbing shoes and toys or anything else on the floor or slightly higher.
There are some unique ways to end this behavior but it does take patience and consistency. Similar training can be done to prevent counter surfing or garbage rummaging, however any canine will go into garbage with what the dog considers “goodies.” When it comes to a yummy McHenry County garbage can, its best to put them where the dog can’t get at it.
