How do i stop my puppy from digging the carpet?

Coat the area lightly with the spray and never spray it at your dog's face.

Common sprays include green apple and bitter cherry.

Take away items that your dog tries to bury.

How to Stop Puppy Digging

  1. Tell Him No. Ideally, you want to interrupt your dog's digging habit by first telling him to stop.
  2. Give More Attention. Dogs that dig out of boredom need more one-on-one attention from the humans they love.
  3. Tire Him Out.
✔️
If you're worried your carpet won't stand up to all the attention, you can try dissuading the digging behavior by making a slightly startling noise to get your dog's attention and to interrupt him. Make sure the noise you use gets his attention but does not scare him.
