My Mimi developed the sudden habit of jumping into a chair and then onto the table. Pushing them is was not enough. I even put the chairs up in another room for a few months because she was constantly doing it. My solution? I bought a new dining table & chairs...the pub/counter height type. Worked like a charm. Good thing I wanted a set like that anyway!

I had a similar problem with Bailey the first few days so I ended up crating him at mealtimes. He gets so stressed in the crate I had to stop (he would poo all over himself every time) so now I think i am going to try the spray bottle idea and keep my fingers crossed. I love the word association idea too.
