My dog is a thief. He keeps stealing things and destroying them. - April 5th 2014, 07:53 AM

I have a 8 month old lab. He knows very well what all things he isn't supposed to take. But he still takes them. He keeps eyeing them and as soon as we look away he takes them and runs away and hides.

This is a problem because he will be harming himself in the process. He'll eat anything that he has stolen, clothes, slippers, pens etc.

How do I put an end to this habit? Currently what we do is we tie him with the leash as a punishment. But it isn't working.
