Is There a Robber in Your McHenry County Home?

Many clients have a four-legged robber in their McHenry County house.  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 number one and paper products second.  We’ve even seen pets that can pick pockets!

 

Robbery happens from end tables and sometimes even grabbing food from someone’s hand.  Another favorite is robbing 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 prevent counter surfing or garbage rummaging, however any canine 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.

 

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 McHenry County home.
