Kahlua loves to dig! We live on .5 acre fully fenced and she loves our backyard. The problem is we also have a septic system and the drain field is in our backyard. She loves to dig in the grass right over that spot. So...my husband built her a dig pit and she LOVES it!! Whenever she starts to paw at the grass we just take her to the pit and she goes to town. Obviously we will have to expand it as she gets bigger, but it is awesome!!

Now that is a great idea. Smart indeed.
Whooda thunk it! If you can confine his digging to that spot. I really like the idea, but I think I'd try to eliminate the digging behavior altogether. Maybe, I dunno. Anyway, I like your dig-pit.

I think I'd train the digging out of her. What happens if you travel with her or visit places where the digging isn't appreciated?
My Mitzi was a digger too...not a lot of dig holes in the yard, just one or two. She would dig, dig, dig, then take a deep sniff in the hole. Dig dig, dig....sniff. Her dig hole was so big, her whole front half was underground. Because of the sniffing, I always assumed she was digging for moles or groundhogs.
I love this idea!!
What Cam said ! What happens if she starts on your flower bed ?
