Digging for fun.

Training your dog not to dig up the garden.

Some dogs are bred specially to burrow after rabbits and badgers. So whether he’s digging for fun, food or Australia, he’s really not doing it just to drive you crazy. Still, you don’t have to let him turn your garden into an archaeological excavation.

First make sure he’s getting enough exercise or isn’t just bored. You can also try to distract him with other activities when he starts digging. However, in all probability you’ll simply have to give up a small ‘digging area’ and regularly bury biscuits, bones and chew toys in it for him to find. If you can confine this to a plastic sandpit, you’re ahead of the game.
