Do you belong to the group of beagle owners that suffer from beagle digging problems? Or more accurately, is your yard and lawn suffering? Read on for proven strategies to stop them for good.
Stopping Beagle Digging Problems
The Humane Society provides a wonderful first step in stopping the digging: understanding. You need to understand the reasons that cause it in order to be able to stop it.
Tips To Stop The Digging
- Tip 1 – Avoid making these mistakes
Punishment or yelling at your beagle.
- Tip 2 – Provide plenty of mental and physical stimulation
Dog dig because dogs naturally dig. Your beagle can be suffering from boredom. Give them something more productive to do with all that energy they have. This might include interesting toys to play with, such as kong toys, training and practice as well as exercise.
- Tip 3 – Create a digging paradise where your beagle is allowed to dig as much as they want to, while keeping the rest of your garden digging free. Then, train your beagle to dig only in that area. (For more information about this, check the resource box at the bottom of this article).
- Tip 4 – If your beagle actually wants to escape, the Humane Society recommends the following:
- Tip 5 – If you are thinking of using some kind of product against the digging or against some other animals that your beagle might be trying to hunt, make sure that they are not poisonous.
- Tip 6 – Offer your beagle plenty of attention and time with you during the day. Don’t reward the beagle digging problems with your attention, though. Provide attention only when your beagle offers desired behaviors.
- Tip 7 – Some dogs dig holes to find a cool place in the summer or a warmer place in the winter. Make sure your beagle has a place in the shade during summer time and plenty of water to drink.
