Understanding Stealing Behaviors

Whether it's stealing socks or your heart, it's important to locate the specific source to your dog's behaviors.

Stealing behavior in dogs can be triggered by various factors, such as curiosity, lack of training, or seeking attention. Understanding the reasons behind this behavior is crucial to effectively address and manage it.

Common Triggers for Stealing

  • Attention-Seeking: Dogs may steal to get attention from their owners or family members.
  • Lack of Training: Untrained dogs may not understand the boundaries and rules of the household.
  • Boredom or Curiosity: Dogs, especially puppies, may steal out of boredom or curiosity.
  • Resource Scarcity: Dogs may steal food or objects if they perceive a scarcity of resources.

We believe in positive reinforcement training to help your dog understand boundaries. Well, positive reinforcement and a lot of patience and love.
