My Blk Lab has started digging in the back yard. She only digs around the house foundation, not along the fence or anywhere else. She seems to know that what she is doing is wrong, but still continues. What can be done to eliminate this behavior.
Digging is a normal behavior in a dog. Some dogs dig b/c it is too cold or too warm outside and need protective shelter. Other dogs dig as a form of self play. These dogs need constant supervision and more active play and exercise. The longer the digging has been taking place, the worse it will become. Some dogs need anti-anxiety medication. Vetcare
