Default Burying bones

Yesterday morning we gave our 13 weeks old puppy a nice bone to play with while we were gone..
When I arrived home I couldn't find it anymore..
This morning I found the bone buried in a box where some palms i sowed 2 years ago were growing.. A lot of those seedlings were destroyed in the process. I was devastated
Damn that little doggy I can't stay mad at him though, because he's such a friendly little boy
Any tips on how I can teach him to not dig between the plants i love alnmost as much as him?

You could use bitter apple spray around the base and on the pot of the plant that you want to keep Edo from...you can find this in the local pet stores.

Thanks, I'll have a look around the pet stores for something like that.. Right now my garden is one big sand pit, but I'll be planting some plants in there soon, I would need to spray that stuff all-over the garden, is there another option I could use maybe?
btw my name is 'Edo', and my dogs name is 'Gijs'

if your gonna spray and keep your dog away from your plants how about keeping a special area just for him, where he is allowed to dig. We will be remodelling our garden this summer and plan on having a special patch for Cookie as she just loves to dig, its the doggie thing to do!

First thing I'd do is make bones an "indoor" only treat. I think it is best that pups be supervised while chewing them anyway, so that accomplishes two goals. Nothing to bury & a little added safety.

However, if Gijs turns out to be like Ozzy, he likes to find sticks & build a little "shelter" for them. Oz has 3 holes in the back hard of "ankle breaking" size and he always leaves a new stick he finds in the holes. He makes no effort to cover them though.

If you have a large area that is garden area, I think the easiest thing to do is to put some chicken wire around the area until your pup is a little older.

I do like the idea of giving the dog his own special garden where he can dig to China if he wants. This seems like the best idea as you can train him where it is appropriate to dig & where it is not.
