Dogs and Digging

It is very common for dogs to dig in the earth. There are certain breeds that dig over others, but it is just a trait of an canine. At times you will find reasons for your pet dog to dig that will be also investigated too. Example one, dogs mostly dig to burrow themselves inside the dirt for cooling themselves off temperature wise. This is hardly a factor worth yelling at a dog for in my mind. Second biggest reason though is simply digging for entertainment.

A big no no while teaching your pet to not dig within the yard is always to garden across the canine. Gardening is actually your dog seeing you play inside the dirt, so now why can’t your dog?.. This generally seems to easy to be true, but it is VERY TRUE. Another to not do, is just freak out with noises and shouts.

Things such as this sometimes excite dogs and definately will make them need to dig when there bored to acquire some excitement coming their way. Lastly, we have to know that some dogs are just diggers and it is what they are going to do no matter. So rather than of screaming your mind off day after day, maybe just set aside a digging area for your new puppy.

Make him know where it is, and tell him it’s fine for him to dig there. Dig with him to show him it’s fine. Still be obedient with him away from his personal digging grounds though. Sometimes we must arrive at a legal contract with some animals because they will just never stop their instincts.
