But first you need to understand the reasons behind their behavior, says Helena Kokes, a behavior consultant with the Humane Society of Boulder Valley.

...
"The litter box could be in the wrong location, the wrong kind of box, a dirty box or the wrong type of litter," Kokes says.
...
To find your cat's litter preference, Kokes suggests filling side-by-side litter boxes with different options.
...
"That's why couches are a huge target," Kokes says. "They're tall and sturdy and where people typically hang out. Stability and texture are also key. There's carpet, sisal rope and even wood.
Try different options to see what they like, Kokes suggests.
...
"So it's normal for them to get up on things, under things, behind things and to explore every square inch of their space," Kokes says.
...
Solution: For social cats, Kokes suggests an elevated lounging area near the activity, like a cat tower. She set up a kitchen stool for her cat where it's easy to dole out treats. "If he goes on the kitchen counter, I encourage him back to the stool and then give him rewards," she says.
...
"Basically, in their core living space," Kokes says.
...
"When they eliminate outside, reward them right away with a treat," Kokes says.
...
"It's part of a dog's nature to chew," Kokes says.
...
"Dogs without the companionship of people or another animal during the day can be a big reason for barking," Kokes says.
