Dogs digging can result in escaping pets and ruined gardens.
This behaviour can easily be addressed with quick and easy resolutions for owners and pets alike.
Why do dogs dig?
While digging is a puppy behaviour which most dogs grow out of, it can progress into a destructive adult habit.
Common Reasons for digging:
- Being left alone
- To create a cool, comfortable place to sit
- Separation Anxiety
- Social Isolation
How to stop digging
- An active or occupied dog is less likely to cause destruction and digging (for ideas, see “Ideas to keep your pets occupied”)
- Install an Electronic Dog Fence. Electronic fences can be placed anywhere in the yard to protect your garden, fences and gates.
- Tethering your dog. Tethering only recommended as a last resort as it can result in increased barking and possible aggression
