    Question Stealing Shoes!

    since i last posted Lilah has barely barked!! such a relief!

    i only have one more problem with my gorgeous girl, at night she sleeps in the laundry and she has a habbit of stealing shoes off the shoe rack, even if i only use the top shelf, she climbs up and sleeps on the middle shelf! -.- cute but naughty!

    thanks in advance for any tips or suggestions

    I never, ever, EVER leave my dog unsupervised in the same room as my shoes! They're made of cow hide. Irresistible to any dog who wants something to chew on.

    So my only advice is: move the shoes to another room.

    My pup stole one of my hubby's slippers probably cause they were so smelly They are now her favourite play toy. When she tries to steal shoes off the rack I just say no to her, put them back and give her one one of her toys which distracts her. Yeah or just move the shoes to another room

    I had the same problem with my pup. No matter how high I put them up, he would manage to get them down and chew on them. We kept distracting him so he didn't have the opportunity to think about the shoes and he eventually stopped the habit at about 7 months old.

    We have one solution only for puppy and shoes...........May the two never be together alone . Shoes are just the best thing in life to a puppy. And even the best behaved puppies will be tempted. Alone+ shoes= chewing
    Pets are forever
