ugh how to stop a dog from digging

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

We have a 5 month old Anatolian Shepard puppy that is a really good dog.........except she loves to dig in my flower bed.  I have put up a border fence but she just goes over it when the mood strikes.  She has plenty of other space to dig.  How do I keep her out of the flowers?

If possible try placing chicken wire under the dirt. if she digs and hits the chicken wire he won't want to continue to dig there. My parents had the same problem and that's what they tried and it actually stopped them from digging completely.

Chop up some hot peppers spicy ones and place them in a spray bottle with water shake it and let it sit for three minutes then spray it on anything you don't want her to damage that s will not harm her.

My dog had the habit of getting into the bathroom wastebasket and spreading the contents all over the house.  I tried putting cayenne pepper in the waste basket.  That worked great until he developed a taste for cayenne pepper.....

The obscure we understand eventually. 
The obvious takes a little longer.

Get some citronella spray/oil spray along where the dog shouldnt go and they wont go there anymore. Also works for dog that chew, spray on the things they souldny chew and problem solved. Animals hate citronella.

Your dog is just a baby at 5 months.  She needs training.  Are you talking about her digging when you're not there or when you are?
