How to Deal with Digging Problems

Digging is a natural behavior for our canine companions. In fact many dogs were breed specifically to be tenacious diggers. If you're having a problem with your dog digging in the yard, you absolutely need to supervise them when they're in the yard just as we would in the home until they know the house rules let's supervise our puppies and dogs outside so they know the right and wrong thing to do. If you're able to it's nice to provide them with a designated digging area such as a sandbox. It's well defined and you can encourage them to get their digging ya-ya's out there. Right, Nora? If that's not an option for you, try giving them other enriching things to do, like bones, things you might not give indoors because they're a little bit messy, filled with food. This is something they can use to entertain themselves that doesn't involve you. And of course when you have time, a good game of fetch, hide and seek or we call games are the way to go. But remember you dog is better off and happier with you supervising them in the yard so they don't develop habits like digging that you don't want to have to undo. "

Jul 27, 2013 - hi! i know you wrote this comment 2 months ago, but let me answer your question. you dont want to exactly punish the dog, but just tell cookie that its the wrong thing to do. you need to establish a tone in your voice that you will use when cookie is doing something good, or bad. when cookie does something naughty eg eat his newspapers you must say "no" in a firm and deep voice, deepeing your voice says "your doing something wrong", use a high pitch tone for praise. start toilet training asap

May 17, 2013 - Hi, my puppy hasn't really been outside that much, and prefers to be inside. But, what he does do that annoys me, is he eats his newspapers. And yes, HIS newspapers.. It's where he poops but he doesn't eat the poop, just any paper that is easy to grab. Is there anyway to stop this kind of behavior??? Please note that I do not give him any punishments.. But please, help with this problem. Btw he's a 3 month old golden retriever called " Cookie" And we only got him yesterday.check date of comment
