Dogs have a lot of quirky behaviours that make us love them even more, but one of the most amusing (and sometimes annoying) has to be their obsession with digging. Whether they're trying to bury a bone, create a comfy den, or just get some exercise, dogs seem to love nothing more than sticking their noses in the dirt and going to town. Here are some different types of digging dogs and their escapades!
The Archaeologist: This dog takes digging to a whole new level by excavating deep pits in the backyard. Owners beware: you may end up with a replica of the Grand Canyon in your lawn!
The Escape Artist: Some dogs don't dig just for fun, but to escape from the confines of their gardens. A determined pup can manage to dig under the fence and make a run for it... keep an eye out for the canine Houdini's.
The Gardener: Who needs a spade when you have a dog? This pup loves to dig up flower beds and help with the gardening. Unfortunately, his idea of "helping" usually involves destruction.
The Burrower: This dog likes to make himself cosy by digging a hole and curling up inside. It's like having his own little doggy den! Just make sure you keep an eye on him - you never know when he might decide to tunnel his way to Oz.
Dogs and digging go together like fish and chips - it's just one of those things that makes them so lovable. So the next time your pup starts excavating in the back garden, just sit back and enjoy the show if you can! Who knows what kind of treasure he might unearth... or what kind of mess he might make!
