Is There a Robber in Your Pistakee Highlands Home?

Many dog owners have a four-legged thief in their Pistakee Highlands 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 most important and paper products number 2.  We’ve even heard of dogs that can pick pockets!

 

Robbery happens from cocktail 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 a little time and consistency.  Similar training can be done to stop counter surfing or garbage rummaging, however any dog will go into garbage with what the dog considers “goodies.”  When it comes to a yummy Pistakee Highlands garbage can, its best to put them where the dog can’t get at it.

 

Call dog behaviorist, Frank Allison for a solution to this problem.  Or, schedule a private session and have Frank experience first hand the "sandwich snatcher" in your Pistakee Highlands home.
