Do you want to know how you get a dog to stop digging up the yard?

Give us an appropriate place to dig! Instead of suppressing the behavior, let us dig to our heart's content in a digging approved area! Sandboxes work great for this!

Here is a video of Rocky and Amp to demonstrate... with a guest commentary by yours truly. ;)

(Please ignore the human commentary. They don't know what they are talking about.)

If we have an appropriate outlet to get our energy out, we are usually much better behaved!


  1. Very good advice!
    Sure you were having lots of digging fun!
    Kisses and hugs

  2. That's a great idea, Treasure, and one that humans often forget when they complain about their doggies digging up their gardens! ;-)

  3. What a great video :) You all look like you are having so much fun!!

    We have never been big diggers when at home...we are more sleepers ;) Though it could be we get all our digging urges out of our system when we are at the beach! I, Jasper dig super deep holes and hide my head in them like an Ostrich and I, Lexi did trenches!!

    Gosh we loved watching Amp jump around trying to catch the sand!

    Also is that huge sandpit at your humans work? Or is it in your back garden?!

    Lots of slobbers,
    Lexi and Jasper the Danes

    1. Thank you for your comment! The sandpit is actually at our grandma's house. She just lives a short drive away from us, and we go visit a few times a month!
