oh wow she is determined!! can't really offer you much advice as my Betty is so small i've not had this issue as she can't reach the work top, which i'm sure Maisie can't either hence this being a new experience for you! x
Thanks ... yes she is a quite tenacious little dog, bless her. I'll ask the trainer's advice tomorrow. Any ideas gratefully accepted! ... bit worrying as it could be dangerous.You would have thought the iron crashing down would have scared her off that, I've heard of setting up noisy things like coins in a can that they hit when they get on the counter to make them think the counter is bad, not you! LOL. good luck with that! She's tenacious!
