Some of you may remember my dd adoptiong a puppy right before her knee surgery a few weeks ago.
Well, alas, this puppy is quite the digger. He has “escaped” to my very understanding neighbor’s yard several times. Every time I cover one hole, he digs another a couple of feet away.
I’ve googled this topic and have a couple of things I am going to try, but I was wondering if any of you have successfully conquered this problem.
One thing that I found suggests putting the puppy’s doo in each hole and covering it with dirt. The premise is that dogs don’t like the smell of their own waste and won’t dig further in this spot. However, I can just picture myself having to dig a “latrine” around the perimeter of my fence. YUCK!
He’s a pretty smart little fellow and tends to learn quickly, so one of two things is going to happen:
- He outsmarts me by continuing to dig in new spots
- I outsmart him and WIN
Anyhow, thanks for your suggestions.
