Tip To Stop Your Dog From Counter Surfing

Counter surfing is used to describe a dog’s habit of eating off the table. This undesirable behavior can increase a dog’s risk to consuming people foods that are toxic to them, such as raisins, chocolates, grapes, onions, garlic, etc. Each time your pooch succeeds in getting food or anything off the table, the behavior gets to be reinforced. 

To put a stop to your pet’s counter surfing, the first step to remove all food from the counters and tables and get your pooch to stick to his own pet food. Also, avoid giving table scraps or people food to your pet because they will certainly know that what you are eating is more delicious than kibble. Be sure to dispose of any leftovers properly and not left on top of the waste bin.

Keep your pet healthy and active by bringing him regularly to your Forest Hill, MD veterinary clinic. Know more about your pet's behavior on this website.
