Keeping your dog from digging in your yard

Your dog loves to dig in your yard, and there are plenty of holes in this space to prove it. However, you’d rather your yard wasn’t pockmarked like this. How can you keep him from digging so much?

Your dog is likely looking for something to do when he starts digging in your yard, so offering him alternative activities can really help him refrain from doing so. Play with him whenever you have the chance, and offer lots of toys to hold his interest in your absence. You should also let him know that you don’t’ prefer him digging, as he has no reason not to engage in this behavior if he thinks it’s appropriate. When he digs, firmly state the word ‘no’ and then redirect his attention elsewhere to get his mind off it. For additional information, please contact your local animal hospital Marietta, GA.
