Bitting at your feet
Me and my boyfriend adopted a boxer about 2 months ago. He is between 1.5 and 2 years old. He is very sweet and non-aggressive; however he has a few issues that I would like to get some advice on.
1. Counter surfing/garbage opening
2. Barking and biting your feet
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have tried to yell, put him in a crate, and make him sit down. Nothing seems to be working for me except the crate - which I don't want to use.
We want him to be able to be left alone when we go out but at this stage it is impossible to leave him outside of his crate.
