Failed Attempts Fixing Your Dog’s Counter Surfing
Either your dog has run off with your dinner or lunch or even worse he’s grabbed something that could hurt him.
You’re frustrated that you can’t stop it
Equally as frustrating is all the “why don’t you try this” suggestions from friends, relatives and other dog owners.
Things like: squirt guns or rock slides of tin cans or pots and pans that are loud enough to wake the dead.
All requiring you be there to apply the required punishment of the squirt gun,or be prepared to do constant clean up.
Counter Surfing: Dog 40 – You 0
Who has the time to orchestrate tricky and time consuming, well-timed behavior modification exercises?
Let’s talk about one easy system that works for you AND lets your dog figure it out all by himself.
Avoid the frustrations and hassles with set ups that don’t work and instead do this.
I know this works because we’ve used it with our 50+ lb. lab puppy Keeper and he’s got one heck of a reach!
How to End Stealing from the Counter Forever!
Determine how far your dog can reach on the counter.
As a constant reminder at first, identify that distance with a piece of “low tack” painter’s tape.
Make a pact with everyone that lives in the house that everything on the counters has to be out of reach behind that line.
You must be consistent with this every day.
The final step is to replace all the things you don’t want your dog to get with things that it’s okay to play with and are highly motivational, as I show you in the video.
Place those items in the family room away from the kitchen.
Before you know it, your dog will be as well-versed in “what works” and what doesn’t work just like our little Keeper.
