Those scat mats work well.
Though they are a bit expensive so I'd just use the crate when I wasn't home myself.

Everytime the dog went near the counter her eyes would light up, she would wave her broom and screech, BUbble bubble toyle and trouble.
Ughhhhh one day i went to scoop the poop and found her in the yard in multiple peices tho.

You don't have to tape the entire counter, just enough so he has a good chance of stepping on it a lot. Most dogs hate the sticky feeling on their feet.|

|wyoung2153||If you're only gone for maybe 4 hours.. why not crate?|

|Zeeva||I've read that those motion detector air freshener plug-in spray thingies work for cats. Maybe plug some of those in around the kitchen counters...|

I just rescued a 5 year old German Shepherd. To my surprise I heard a racket in the kitchen and walked in there and found him walking on my kitchen counter. I've found evidence on 3 other occasions when I wasn't home. I'm usually only gone for 4 hours or less. I don't want to leave him outside because I live in rattlesnake country and even though he sleeps in a crate at night I prefer not to keep him locked up in the crate during the day. Any suggests on how to resolve this problem.
