  • Take him out on a leash and "catch" him every time he tries and use your "scary" voice and say "NO!!!" When he is able to go out with you on the leash and not dig, take him off the leash, but still stay out with him. Again, monitor him and catch him in the act. It's the only way to change his bad habit. Once he is out with you and not digging, you can try letting him out on his own again. Good luck!
