Any little piece of grass or earth at home, or even a garden in an apartment, can become a possible target for dogs who love to dig. Puppies and adults have this habit, and the first thing that the owners need to understand is that this is a natural behaviour of the pet.
It is not a complaint or revenge tear Earth. The dogs also dig for play, hide your “treasures”, as bones and toys, and to expend energy.
To minimize this behavior, the owners must divert the attention of the dog to other activities, perform longer trips, walks in the Park, offer interactive toys with which he’s going to play and spend energy, among other initiatives that distract you. These are the main tools to change this behavior.
It is also recommended not to leave the pet alone in the area that has that part of the garden that he should not move. But, if it is not possible to put bitter spray is one of the alternatives to reduce the frequency of destruction. Another weird but effective technique is to bury the dog stool in the holes that he did–it won’t let odor or offer prejudice to the plants, but the dog feels discouraged the move there again. Surround the location whenever possible is also a tip.
If there is any part of the garden that allowed the dog to dig, leave this clear of items that the repel and praise, play with him whenever he is in place. Supervise at first, so that in the middle of the joke, excited, the dog doesn’t detour to the part.
When the owner plant and move it in the garden, many dogs dig for imitation and because that space has the smell of the owners. So, if this is a routine at home, try to take care of the plants when your dog is entertained with another activity.
