How to stop a dog digging holes in the backyard?

How to stop a dog digging holes in the backyard?

Does your dog dig holes?

When Jet Cavoodle was very little he decided it was a good idea to dig up the yard at our rental property we lived in at the time. Knowing I was responsible for fixing an damage, wanting a well behaved dog and not wanting to behaviour to continue, I quickly did some research to solve the problem.

My good friend and dog trainer Jacinta told me about an essential oil combo that dogs hate but humans will enjoy that will stop him digging. I made up some of the mixture and began spraying it on the dirt each time Jet dug another hole.

How to stop your puppy chewing?

How to stop your puppy chewing?

Does your puppy chew everything in sight?...I stopped counting at $1500

When a new puppy arrives home your heart will be melting, there’s almost nothing you won’t do for this cutie and pretty much any accidents or undesirable behaviour can be dismissed… until your new shoes/ furniture/ designer sunglasses (you get the gist) show evidence of teeth marks.

Along with toilet training, chewing (read destroying) your personal or household effects can certainly take the gloss off that cuteness in a hurry, particularly when this undesirable behaviour in your more perfect than perfect pup is repeated.

Introducing a Dog to a Baby? | How To
If I were to tell you that I were thankful for having broken my toe, you would probably think it were strange. Well, here is how an injury led me to where I am today.

In February 2013 after having kicked my foot on the coffee table, I was cooped up at home on the couch with a broken toe. How could something so small be so painful? But the physical pain of the break was only part of the hurt I was experiencing..... I was in a depressive episode.

The Poo Bag Bandit - My best tip for getting others to pick up their dog's poo

The Poo Bag Bandit - My best tip for getting others to pick up their dog's poo
Vomit followed by dog poo....I wasn't going to do these posts one after the other, but what the heck let's get all the gross bits and pieces out the way.  I have a pet peave when I'm out walking Jet Cavoodle, seeing other dog owners not picking up their dog's poo.  There's the odd time everybody forgets to take a poo bag on their walk and I've been know to  do this myself and then there's the people who appear to make no effort at all.  You know the ones, they actually watch their dog do their business then turn as if to pretend nothing has happened, like the steamy plop is invisible and walk right on by.

Dog Weight Loss Tips | My Little Piglet Jet Cavoodle Looses Over 2kg - This Is How We Did It?

Dog Weight Loss Tips | My Little Piglet Jet Cavoodle Looses Over 2kg - This Is How We Did It?
I've got a confession to make! I'm a terrible dog owner who accidently allowed her dog to put on 2.6kgs.  In human terms that isn't much but for Jet Cavoodle that's 21% of his total body weight. So, how did it happen?  
 
I've always been fairly strict with food, sure Jet gets treats from time to time, generally they're healthy dog related treats like green beans (his absolute favourite) and cut up carrot.  He doesn't like whole carrots with skin on, only peeled in small pieces...thanks very much!
