From Modern Dog, Spring 2016 – POSTED MARCH 23, 2016
Does your dog dig in ‘inconvenient’ places, like your vegetable or flower garden? Digging is an instinctive canine behaviour and difficult to stop. Many times it can be from boredom and a need to expend their energy. Possible solutions: #1 when dog is alone give him with something to do – i.e. stuffed Kong, marrow bone; #2. Exercise him more – physically and mentally. #3. Create a ‘dog pit’ in an area you don’t mind giving up and has nice dig-able dirt.
