Hey guys, since moving to mums Bailey has taken to digging.
She only digs where there is no grass, doesnt have a particular spot though. She has a million toys to play with so isnt bored, doesnt have a particular time of day for doing it (just whenever she can sneak out unnoticed) It seems to be an attention thing, she has even gone to do it directly at my feet a couple of times, and watches for a reaction. She gets plenty of attention; walked twice a day, playtime twice a day, I try to swim her between 3-5 days a week etc etc. She is rarely locked outside and if she is she has Sam for company, she wont dig when Sam is present.
Originally I tried showing her the hole, "NO" and then keeping her around the side of the house for 20 minutes as punishment (no sam, people , inside, toys or lawn). It didnt work. I have tried putting water balloons with air in the holes and covering....she is too inquisitive.
It is very rarely that I smack my dog, but honestly it is getting to that stage now.........I have no more ideas and mum is getting really angry
