dog digging hole in yardQ. How do I stop my dog from digging?

A. Because dogs like to dig, training is the only way to stop the behavior. When you catch Fido in the act , firmly say “no”  then divert his attention with his favorite toy. Yelling at him after you’ve discovered the hole doesn’t work because you need to correct the behavior while he’s digging instead of afterward. Tip: Bury some toys in a sandbox that you’ve provided then encourage him to dig them out.
