Dog Training. Dog Behaviour. Dogs Digging!

Digging -
There can be many different reasons for this type of behaviour.
Boredom, Separation Anxiety, breed inclination (although I personally have found enrichment and exercise are key here with our Border Terriers) and simple exploratory puppy play to name but a few.
However, if you do happen to catch your dog digging, you can use a “Bah!!” coupled with a clap or shake a plastic bottle with pebbles in it (down by your side) to get their attention. Then, coax them to another location, away from the dug up area and get him or her engaged in a different behaviour for 3-5 minutes - maybe with their favourite toy. Remember, dogs usually find interacting with you with their toys a lot more fun! Selina McIntyre, Dog Behavioural Consultant and Dog Trainer, Dogs Best Friend.
