For many Puppy owners Digging can quickly become a problem. For most dogs the instinct to dig is bred right into their make-up. It can be difficult to stop a puppy from digging, but it can be done. The first thing you need to do is try to figure out what the puppy is digging for. Is it boredom, to cool off, to bury bones, trying to escape or do they just dig because it is fun?
