Climbing on the table.

Post by KMack02 on Thu Jun 11 2015, 21:37

I'm not sure if this is something she'll grow out of but it's becoming a bit of pain.

We have a kitchen/diner and pepper is constantly climbing on the dining table, I know she associates it with food because of course that's where we all eat but is there anyway I can deter her from doing it?

She ONLY climbs on when we're not here or during the night, I've never see her do it when there's someone in the house. I thought I was going mad at first but I've been taking the centre piece off the table and putting a bit of paper on the table that is never punctured or destroyed but ALWAYS in a different place.

I've tried taking the chairs out of the kitchen every night/time we go out but that only helped her to realise she can climb on her crate, I've tried moving the crate but she somehow moves it so she can get up.

Any suggestions?

My Flo used climb on the table too but we were able to move the chairs so there was no way she could climb up. She doesn't bother now, I guess because she knows there's nothing to eat up there. I would imagine pepper will get the same idea as long as there isn't anything tasty up there.

She may grow out of it. Suki still jumps up after every meal just to make sure we didn't leave any unwanted food

Probably a silly question, but I'm assuming you can't close off the area that the table is in when she's alone?

If its possible perhaps moving the table to another room i realise this is a lot of hassle she may tire of this through time i love how clever our dogs are
