Many dogs love to dig, particularly terriers, which have been bred for centuries to do exactly that!
Although digging is unacceptable to us, it is a perfectly normal canine behaviour, and as such is often better redirected than ‘cured’.
Creating a ‘digging pit’ for confirmed canine gardeners is usually the best way of offering an appropriate outlet for the behaviour, without having a hole the size of a swimming pool in your lawn!
Having found treasure in this spot, very few dogs then want to dig elsewhere!
