If it is not, then you may need to take it off the counter.Second, be clear with your dog that jumping on the counter is not allowed. Call him back and remove him from the situation if he continues.Third, remove toys or anything that he can chew or play with on the counter if he continues to jump on it.Fourth, use a treat dispenser toy or a training treat dispenser if available. These help teach your dog how to get what he wants by sitting or waiting instead of jumping on the counter!
