Distraction, distraction, and distraction. If she has a favorite spot you can bury a Cacao turd in there; that supposedly discourages them. She may need to spend more time on the leash when she's outside than you'd like, though, until she learns. I'm working on teaching Chouette to stay out of the flower beds, but it's a slow process, since I'm shaping behavior rather than teaching a very specific lesson. But she's 11 months old so it's easier.
There are also products you can use to sprinkle in areas you want her to stay away from. If you don't have a lot of flower beds that could work.
Dex never dug until we got Kirby...then Kirby showed him how to dig :twisted: We got them to stop by not leaving them unattended together very much and telling them "no" when we caught them. We'll see what happens when the weather gets nicer. Good luck
I have been meaning to ask the same thing!!! I have been told, that digging is a sign of needing more exercise or boredom... but, Lucas will sometimes dig at the end of a 2 hour walk, that includes 30-45 mins of fetch!!! Sooo... perhaps sometimes, this is something they just do? Often as part of his zoommie ritual??? Anyway, I heard the poop thing as well, it does work... but only for that spot... problem is, he finds new spots!
I hate him... I love him... I hate him...I love him....
