    is the puppy outside unattended?
    Either supervise adn redirect or put up a fence around the garden (not a high one) to keep the puppy out.

    I agree with Tanya. It's a tiresome, but definitely be around the puppy constantly while he/she is outside for easy correcting. Can't let them get away with anything, not even for a second! Haha.

    Labbies love to dig! If you don't want the digging, you need to supervise your puppy while outside. Here's a couple of pix of Sophie digging to China!

    I (and by I, I mean my husband) had to put up a fence around the back garden as Blaise (as a puppy) chewed the plants right down to the ground. It was SO MUCH FUN for him! Even now, if we open the gate and go in there to weed, he will jump at the chance to go in there - now he just likes to dig in the softer soil.

    Until puppy gets bit older and more mature you just have to watch them like a hawk and give him/her something they will find more interesting than a digging hole.
