Lets Prevent Your Dog Digging up your Garden, Shall we?

Has your beloved pooch turned your garden into a holey mess?

Dogs enjoy digging for their own entertainment through boredom and possibly a lack of socialisation. Working dog breeds will dig as it’s their natural instinctive behaviour and were bred to hunt and always need a ‘job’ to keep happy! Especially with puppies, they have tons of energy so digging holes in your garden is a great way to expel that energy and of course be mischievous! Dogs can also dig due to behaviour and anxiety issues.

To curb this behaviour there are a few options you have such as:

  • Supervising your dog and when it starts to dig cause a distraction
  • Play with your dog and provide mental stimulation
  • Take your dog on a few new walks
  • Teaching your dog a command such as ‘stop’ every time it goes to dig

Our light-duty ground protection mesh is also a great preventative, this diamond plastic mesh is light and easy to lay down onto existing grassed areas and pinned down with our U-Pins. The 3-D structure design ensures the effective anchoring of the grassroots and the smaller holes in the mesh make it difficult for your four-legged friends to claw through to the ground. Once the grass pokes its way through the mesh it will cause the ground protection mesh almost invisible, guaranteed to get your garden back to looking its green best – and don’t worry about giving your grass a trim, lawnmowers can be used without an issue.

Our light-duty ground protection meshes are chemical-free so there’s no need to worry about anything affecting your dog when they’re out playing in your garden.
