Dogs love to dig a lot like toddlers love to throw things. It's a great release. It's an accomplishment. And, for dogs anyway, it creates a wondrously cool resting spot.
But as you probably know, there are few drawbacks to digging, too. The torn-up yard and muddy footprints might come to mind.
If digging's got you down, remember: all is not lost. While you can't eliminate the thrill of digging altogether, there are many things you can do about it.
