dog taking clothes off the line
Can you please tell me how you stop a dog from taking clothes off the clothes line..or how to stop a dog digging up the garden
ANSWER: dog taking clothes off the line
There are many and varied reasons why the dog does this - and it is best to try and find the reason why - for example it could be boredom, anxiety etc. So, why is the dog pulling the laundry off the line? You also mention digging that is natural for a dog but it can turn into obsessive behaviour if they are bored or stressed. For the latter recommend a sandpit or similar to be created where the dog is allowed to dig. For the taking clothes off, I would try and do the laundry when he is not alone - so you minimise the stress on all. If that is not possible, try and keep the dog away from the area. If that is not possible, use aversion therapy, eg try hanging an old sheet with chilli paste, hang balloons with water in an old pillow case or similar. Failing all these options fail - maybe your dog is telling you it wants some dog clothes of his own?
