My pup was digging, but I put a large black plastic bag in with some dog repellent in it. He started digging other place. I got him a play pen where he is allowed to dig.Someone recommended this to me. Anyone have any experience? He repeatedly tries to did the same hole in the same place.
I bought from walmart. It seems to be working with him. But he is very sensitive to stuff anyways.What dog repellent?

Unless he already hates poop enough to avoid it, its probably not going to have much of an effect. I'd bet that a lot of people who thought it did, also interrupted it and or corrected for it. I'd just pay attention for a little while and make sure he know's what leave it means.Someone recommended this to me. Anyone have any experience? He repeatedly tries to dig the same hole in the same place.
Instead of pulling him away, I'd walk him on leash past that spot multiple times a day and as close as you need to so that his attention will go to it. "Leave It" followed by an immediate leash pop. Nothing too harsh.Great feedback, thank you. Yes, I discourage it and tell him no and pull him away. It's not out of control, but in a month or two (when he is too big for coyotes to mess with) he will be allowed to go out unsupervised a bit and from experience, I'd rather get ahead of the digging to China.
Thanks, I ordered some of that Ortho B Gone stuff above.If there's an obsession with one spot, some cayenne powder or red pepper flakes cause most dogs to leave that spot alone. You may not have to buy anything special beyond what's already in your spice cabinet. (However, I say "most dogs," because I have one "Cajun" Shepherd that likes it and basically says "bring it" to spicy stuff. He's weird.)
