Hi Yvette,

Thanks for your message and congratulations on your new puppy!

Have you started obedience training your puppy yet? If not, please do start right away. The ebook has a great 12 week guided training programme. With the digging issue, you could try a loud clap followed by a firm ' leave it' command. With time she should understand that this behaviour is not acceptable. Digging is a normal behaviour for a dog, so it would be nice if you allow her a little dig-friendly zone in your yard.

All the best!
