Mastiff Question

How to Stop Digging


My 7 months old female half Bull mastiff & half English Mastiff likes digging holes in yard. How do I stop this?

Try a training collar, they work while the dog is still a puppy. However, when the dog becomes full grown, the collar will be ineffective due to the sheer size and strength of the dog. Our male mastiff responded well to the collar until he was about 110-120lbs, than it just became an annoyance!

I raise English mastiff... one way that seems to help with MOST dogs... is I fill in the hole most of the way, then place their feces in the hole & finish filling in the hole with dirt & pack down... this usually takes a FEW tries.. but have had good luck breaking dogs of digging..... Sometimes for hard core.. you can try placing some wire fence just under the dirt.. when they start to dig & hit wire it is not comfy & they will stop.... this also take a few tries... Good luck!
