How do you prevent your pup from digging? This should help with some ideas.

Pups will engage in naturally rewarding behaviors, that make them feel good or fulfill a deep genetic need. Digging is something which pups love to do and without an outlet pups will often destroy parts of the yard.

To prevent this becoming an issue with your pup you will need to get proactive.

Firstly, don’t let your pup have access to the yard unattended. When you do go out together consider having your pup on a leash.

In addition, provide an alternative outlet for your pup’s desire to dig. This could be a container with water, a sand pit with buried treasure or a ball pool. By giving your pup these games to play, you will make it less likely that they will look to dig in unwanted areas. It’s also a great form of enrichment.
