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