my girl, had her for 2 years, she is roughly 2.5 years old. well after we make dinner if we dont put it up, she will wait for us to leave and steal something!

last night she nabbed 2 grilled chicken breasts within 1-2 minutes, i kid you not.

how i knew, she was standing in the hallway with her ears back wagging the tail, she knew what she did was wrong. sure enough they were gone from the pan.

so she busts herself, how do i discipline that. :(

Not much you can do after the fact. If you catch her in the act then you could make a loud noise. I seen an episode of "It's me or the dog" and the dog would raid the fridge. They put an alarm on the fridge as soon as the dog opened it the alarm went off. The dog ran into the other room and stopped raiding the fridge.

If it's not there for her to take, she can't do it. Clean up as quickly as possible. You are tempting her to do it and if she's been doing it for this long, it sounds like your approach might need to be changed. IMHO.

It's like training a puppy to not chew on shoes...don't leave them out so it can.

If she's getting the chicken, she's not dense at all.

if we dont put it up
Then put it up. Part of dog training is modifying their behavior when we have to, but a big part is modifying our own behavior to limit their opportunities to fail.

It's called "picking your battles."

My dog Kechara does the same thing, it's not something you can change easily. We have learned that anytime we can't watch her the food has to be out of reach, otherwise if she gets it it's OUR fault and she shouldn't be punished after the fact.

You mean it would not cool in the fridge if it hadn't cooled to room temperature beforehand? Unbelievable :D If you were closer I would come over and watch it cool off for you. Although I would be tempted myself to steal it.
