I'm not a very experienced dog owner.. I know my basics but that's it. I rescued a dog in August and have been dealing with some of his behaviour problems but now I"m stuck. Problem 1: When I'm not home he gets very anxious. He IS house trained but recently took to peeing on a specific couch as if he's upset with me. I blocked off his access to the room and the problem seemed solved. Now he's starting to pee else where in another room. I thought of crate training but he freaks out when blocked in an area such as a room and I can't image trying to get him used to a crate. I don't know how to solve this problem as I only discover it after hours of not being home. Problem 2: He's lately been taking to stealing food off tables. I feed him well each day, he gets lots of exercise, etc. It started where he would steal food off the coffee table if we left it unattended. We moved it out of his reach. Now he's some how getting onto counter tops (always when I'm not home) and destroying anything .. even tums. Today, he somehow got onto the kitchen table today while my mum was home and stole off her entire pizza. He slinked away when she told him off. Again, he doesn't do it when i'm home.. what do I do. Thank you so much.
