Keeping Your Dog from Ruining Your Yard

Keeping your dog from ruining your yard can be an ongoing battle. Some dogs like to dig, others don’t confine their elimination to one “potty” area, and still others are just generally destructive to everything in the yard. Whatever your problem, here are some tips for keeping your dog from ruining your yard.

If your dog is a digger, keeping your dog from ruining your yard means trying to change instinctive behavior that is part of his nature. Some breeds, like terriers and dachshunds, are especially prone to digging. Changing this behavior can be difficult, but not impossible. One way to do this, particularly if your dog has a favorite place to dig, is to set up a water sprinkler nearby. When your dog begins digging, turn on the sprinkler. A sudden dousing will stop most dogs in their tracks. If your dog digs when you are away from home, consider an automatic sprinkler with a timer. Sudden loud noises, such as coins in a can being shook, administered when the dog begins digging can also be a way to keep your dog from ruining your yard.
