Hopefully after a few good lessons for you Finder, you'll be able to put the mat away to avoid those self inflicted accidental lessons

|Kahrg4||Thanks for all the suggestions! The scatmat arrived yesterday and has been up and operating since last night. 24 hours later and the fridge is still unharmed. I've accidentally stepped on it a few times myself and it's very unpleasant but not overly painful. Finder has been caught a couple times by it and has since avoided it. I've got my fingers crossed that the problem has been solved!|

|LoveDogs||My last GSD did the fridge thing too and also the oven. The oven he used the towels so that was an easy fix (cost me a thanksgiving Turkey though). The fridge was more of an issue. I tried the baby locks and that did not work at all, the chair, crating, etc. FINALLY the ONLY thing that works was duct tape. It looked horrible but it did the job! Silly I know.|

That's amazing that you have a calm and witty Sibe. When our Paw Paw was a pup he went through obedience training with a trainer who was from Alaska. She had plenty of experience working with northern breeds and huskies, similar to what you mentioned, and she said Paw Paw was the most well-behaved Siberian she has ever met. Well, he's been a great dog, but he can still be a rascal when he wants to be, or when I am unable to give him the amount of exercise he needs. He's also 6 now, and he was much more of a rascal when he was younger. I'm grateful that he's never desired to open our fridge though! I'm glad you're finding help from the people in this forum! Good luck. Nice to see others with a Sibe/GSD combo.

How about an ecollar? You have a nanny cam, so set him up. Watch him from outside the house, when he goes into the kitchen, correct him. Find a trainer to teach you how to use it correctly, but you are going to have to find something that you can do from a distance.
Scat mats at the kitchen entrance and in front of the fridge may work. Until he learns how to jump over them.

Oh gosh. How unfortunate, and a little bit funny. Who needs thumbs, right?
I am no help since the only solution I could offer is to invest in an anti zombie-apocalyptic crate, not unlike this one:
Leerburg | Deluxe Full Tread Aluminum Dog Crate
But it is also v. costly, which would not be pertinent in your case.
You know, what should happen is for manufacturers to offer a top loading fridge to their product line. I can't imagine any dog being able to open *that* to raid the fridge.
Watch. Some lurker is going to read this and run off with my multi-million dollar idea and market it towards owners w/ fridge-raiding pets.
