To Nicky & Lizzie: Diging holes
Hi there, I don't normally post here but have been reading the posts anyways....
We have a Lab almost 2yrs old....he's busy digging our pool <<<LOL>>> everyday on a different spot....he normall does it during the night and someone told us it's because he's bored. Also, when we open the backdoor in the mornings, then Mr runs to his kennel already. This tells us that he knows exactly what he's done no matter how long ago it was. These labs are extremely clever and I believe they know when they're naughty. We don't have any moles in our garden...thankfully....can u imagine wot the place would look like with mole hills and ditches??
We tried putting his poo in the hole...but the problem is he doesn't open the same hole he just goes and digs on a different place.
Oh the other 'naughty' thing he does is...when I hang my socks on the line...he will only pull off a specific sock....my winnie the pooh one.

:)

Your dog will need some professional help. For some reason some dogs just become diggers and do it any time of day or night. I know if one that burries anything and everything; towels, cell phones, underwear. Even though she has many toys and seems very happy.
