my dog was always pinching food but he has got a lot worse

Customer Question

my dog was always pinching food but he has got a lot worse since my daughter's two dogs arrived in the house. He was always the aggressive male. He was a rescue dog and i have had him for 5 years. He is now nearly 10. I just walk out of the room and he helps himself and empties the bin. I wormed him a couple of months ago

Hi JaCustomer,

My name is Jane. I have been working professionally with animals especially dogs in both health and behavioral issues for over 18 years. I have over 14,000 satisfied customers. It will be my pleasure to work with you today.

In order to supply you with the best information, I do need to ask for some additional information. Once I receive your answer, it will likely take me about 30-45 minutes to type up your response. I hope you can be patient.

What breed is your dog?
Do any of the other dogs do this?
Does he seem hungry all the time or is it that he just wants the people food?
I'm in the U.S., by bin do you mean the trash?
If he is able, does he also get food off the counters and table?
Besides not having it available, what have you tried?
Does your "bin" have a lid?
