I wouldn't recommend getting another dog, at least not right away. That won't solve your problems, I'd be willing to bet a testicle that you'd just end up with two dogs digging, chewing, and wrecking shop. I know it's expensive to have your dog professionally trained but you should seriously consider doing so. Being this is your first dog and you are admittedly new to the whole owning a dog and training a dog thing, you would benefit greatly from seeing a professional. Whatever you choose, I wish you luck.

He could always try those group classes, too. They're cheaper, you still get to see a professional do his/her thing, and the dog gets a little socialization, too. :-)

Let me just say that the OP has listened to all of the suggestions (vitriolic and otherwise) and truly sounds like he wants to do what's best for his pup pup. I know I made some mistakes with my two and I was glad for all the help that I got from seasoned pet owners. Kudos to Shawngee and everybody else ;-D

That is a great idea. The instructor can probably help you with the specific issues you having with the dog.

I doubt you are going to be able to stop the hole digging. Dogs dig, thats what they do. My dog does not dig much, and when she does she avoids the grassy parts of the yard for some reason, so that was not a huge issue. I know other dogs that dig huge holes all over the yard, and nothing their owners do has been able to stop it.

My dog used to dig when she was much younger and I was able to stop it. What I did was: one day I caught her digging, I went out and actually helped her a little. After digging together for a while, I went and grabbed the garden hose and began filling the hose with water. She sat next to the hole looking a little perplexed. After the hole was full of water and she was leaning over it curiously, I shoved her face into the water and she squirmed and ran to the corner of the yard. Then I filled the hole back up with dirt...she never dug another hole again. :-D

You can't control one dog, and you want to get another? :-?

I think the only option you have is to adopt 12 or 15 dogs, scientific tests have proved that they'll keep each other company. ;-D
