All of that makes a lot of sense.
A trick I have used to keep a dog from jumping on counters is to put duct tape sticky side up and tape a string to the duct tape. Then have the string run up to a cupboard where you have a can with some pennies in it. When the dog jumps up their paws stick to the tape and when they come down the can comes after them.
In the beginning you can just try duct tape as some will stop because it rips hair from their paws.
This is effective if your dog is house broken and won’t chew on anything they aren’t supposed to and all you are left with is a dog that likes to roam the counters.
