How to Train a Puppy Not to Dig

By eHow Pets Editor
For ma
ny breeds, it is part of puppy's nature to dig. However, digging can cause a lot of problems, including putting your puppy in danger. Teaching your puppy to not dig while she is young is a good way to stop the problem from escalating when the dog grows older. In a few short steps, you can learn how to train your puppy not to dig.

Step 1:

Fill the holes that your puppy has dug. If you constantly fill their holes, sometimes puppies lose interest in digging when they realize their digging is futile. Fill the holes with anything that is handy, including dirt or dried leaves. Once your puppy sees that his holes are being filled, it should lessen his desire to dig.

Does this work on full grown dogs? Because my dog is five or six and it still digs sometimes.

this works no kidding, just put their poop in the hole and fill it in they won't dig up their poop. Worked for me with two dogs so far.

I love it when my puppy digs, very natural and they have so much fun doing it, plus its form of reveling stress or energy.
