Food stealing dog!

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. :(

she is dense! but my baby!
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."
