Is There a Robber in Your Ottawa Home?
Many clients have a four-legged thief in their Ottawa 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 most important and paper products second. We’ve even heard of dogs that can pick pockets!
Robbery happens from dinner 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 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 Ottawa garbage can, its best to put them where the dog can’t get at it.
