Is There a Thief in Your McHenry County House?
Many clients have a four-legged robber in their McHenry County 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. Some pets steal from the kitchen counters with food being number one and paper products second. We’ve even heard of dogs that can pick pockets!
Robbery happens from cocktail tables and sometimes even snatching 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 stop counter surfing or garbage rummaging, however any dog will go through 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.
