My dog keeps digging up my lawn I take him for walks everyday except when it rains of course then we play in doors, i have scolded him, i have spanked him, talked nicely, begged him, what more can i do???? He has alot of toys including a kong he doesn't like so much, to keep him busy while i am busy doing house chores etc. Do I have a REBELIOUS CHILD? <_< :blink:

I was having a similar problem, except Bogie was digging on carpet inside, not grass outside. My mom had seen a segment on the today show a while ago with a dog trainer who's advice was to scold the act, not the dog. She suggested to someone on air to say "Bad Digging" when he's digging. I started that with Bogie immediately, and the instant I say it, he stops. He also has been doing it less frequently ever since, so maybe its worth a try.
