Hi this is Dr. Sara. Definitely more Lab than Poodle :) I am going to start the conversation, but I have to see appointments starting at 2 and won't be back on until around 5pm. I don't want you to think I'm not replying. So when you say 2 legged dog, I envision her up on the counter, is that where she does most of her stealing? Do you have a lot of things out or kids that leave stuff on the counters? (That would be my issue) I do have an idea for an electric fence. Do you know you can set these up for indoor use? Maybe you have already tried this; let me know.
