Many clients have a four-legged thief in their Rock County home. Those of you with pets 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 number 2. We’ve even heard of pets that can pick pockets!
Robbery happens from end 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 unique ways to end this behavior but it does take a little time and consistency. Similar training can be done to prevent counter surfing or garbage rummaging, however any dog will go through garbage with what the canine considers “goodies.” When it comes to a yummy Rock County garbage can, its best to put them where the dog can’t get at it.
