  1. Sandbox for digger?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    My question is whether or not getting a sandbox would help a digging situation. Gracie, our 10 month old pup has been digging in our backyard. I know she's just bored and/or just has fun digging. And maybe she's in search of something, she's been digging up our tree's roots and gnawing them...
  2. Puppy digging holes under fence, escaping.

    General Dog Forum
    We thought we had foiled our new puppy's escape plan by blocking larger gaps in our picket fence with some old window shutters. He is smarter than we thought because, with fresh rain softening the soil, he has now started digging holes under the fence and crawls under in a flash. There's never...
  3. Kennel Crazy

    Dog Training Forum
    So, my 7 month old Boxer/Shepard Mix is really good about going into the kennel when we tell him. It makes life much easier. However, when I have to leave for an extended period of time :wave:(usually work), he tends to tear up blankets, the hardwood floor, carpet, anything he can get his paws...
  4. Digging

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Not sure what to do. We have a 5 month old lab mix, think the other half is chow. She is starting to dig in the yard. She did it once before, over a month ago. She then broke her knee cap so she couldn't dig. Well now its all better and here are the holes again. Between yesterday and today we...
  5. Lots of questions on our new, lively rescue dog

    Dog Training Forum
    My wife and I recently added a lively ~4 year old female red heeler-type dog to our family (the two of us, our 1.5 year old son, and our ~7 year old female tortoise shell cat). My wife and I have both had dogs in the past, but never as a couple, and this is the first extended time our son has...
  6. The thing about terriers...

    General Dog Forum
    ...they like to dig. Sigh. So, last night I had a big scare. Apparently Kodi dug under the fence and visited the apartment complex next door and Gizmo followed him. Taz was just oblivious to the whole thing. I mean it's one thing when Kodi get's out because he makes a point not to wonder too far...
  7. Tearing up the Carpet

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I am a first time dog owner. I have a 7mo old Chorkie. He has been digging at our carpet to the point of leaving small holes. At first it was only one spot. Despite the spot being in the center of a room, we kept it covered and the problem seemed solved. Now, however, he has chosen several...
  8. Post-neuter seroma wreaking havoc

    Dog Health Questions
    Hi everyone! Tolouse was neutered on 2/11. He was a cryptorchid and ended up with a spay-style incision near his penis. Very extensive surgery. We were advised by the vet to limit activity for a week, but were told crating was unnecessary. [Tolouse was never crated before this, only confined to...

    we have a wonderful 10 month old lab mix, who lives outside. i play with him, run with him in the morning, and take him for walks in the evening everyday. hes well behaved overall, except for when i come outside to see him every morning, it seems like he gets himself into some type of trouble...
  10. Tiptoe through the tulips (well, sort of) :D

    Dog Training Forum
    I was watching Kodi dig a hole in our backyard. Kodi is not an obsessive digger and his holes are not the big so I thought -- "Hey, it's gonna be time to get my garden up and running again! Why not train Kodi to dig my holes for planting my flowers?" Well, why not? Why not turn an otherwise bad...
  11. Sick bullmastiff doing strange things

    General Dog Forum
    On Tuesday night my 6 year old Bullmastiff "Timber" didn't eat her dinner and was acting very lathargic. The next morning I found some sluggy diarrhea out in the yard and she was definitly not being herself so I took her to the Veterinarian. She had a high temperature (105 Degrees) and was...
