Re: [dna2] Golden like to dig my grasses

oh boy.. i'm afraid to stop ur GR from digging wud need a lot of time spent "spying" ur dog. U have to keep a close on ur dog, once u spot ur dog starting to dig, quickly jump out & yell "NO!" to startle ur dog. Otherwise u can throw an empty plastic bottle or light object , NOT AIMING at your dog, but clsoe enuf to startle it. Ur dog will associate digging = unpleasant consequences! Really need patience, all the best to u~ Smile

Another thing i notice my dog will dig wen i give her a rawhide bone. She so sayang to eat her bone she finds a spot & dig & hide her bone there & retrieve it later... Pirate My garden is all holes & numerous plants hav lost their lives. My 2 cents to u is just dun plant too many expensive plants... Or otherwise fence it up...

My girl has digged a big big hole as a place to hide her toy

I have tried to fill it back but ntg is better now

she likes to bury her toy (a round red egg) as if she laid it and bury it like turtle

loves dogs always
