Hello from a new member

We have a 5.5 month old Golden. We love her, and learn more and more about her everyday. Our latest issue is how to keep her off the counter. She constantly jumps up and steals food, papers, toys etc. Twice this week she has been walking across the counter. HELP!

I'm anxious to learn from all of you.
Thank you in advance!

Welcome to you and your Golden girl.

Are you attending obedience classes with your girl?

You ask how to keep her off the counter, Hmmmm, wait about 9 or 10 years, your pup will maybe outgrow it.

If it's not the counter it's the garbage can, mine still is tempted! I'm hoping other have suggestions especially since yours is still a puppy.

Welcome to you and your Golden girl.

Hope you'll share pictures of her with us.

I did a search for Counter surfing and came up with this thread. It might be useful for you.


Enjoy the forum.
