Changing habits takes time. Your dog's unwanted behaviour habit has to be replaced with a new desirable habit.
You may have to purchase some toy or occupying treats for your dog. You may need to train your dog. You cannot simply sit back and wait for your dog to behave. You have to teach them.
Step Three: Short-term management
Managing destructive behaviours will not cure the unwanted behaviour but it will control it enough to prevent it happening.
Some management strategies include:
Shutting doors and/or building barriers to precious areas
Keeping your dog on a lead when you need to control their behaviour
Providing more outlets for your dog's energy eg. canine sports, training, toys, games, walks
Using other services eg. dog walker, doggy daycare
These are short-term, as when you remove them, the dog may well go back to its former behaviour. Long-term solutions are needed to remove the undesirable behaviour.
Step Four: Long-term solutions
Long-term solutions require you to understand the cause of your dog's unwanted behaviour.
If your dog is performing natural canine behaviours, albeit you don't like them, you will not be able to stop them. Instead you must satisfy their need. So build a digging spot, Give them exercise. Satisfy their drive to dig, roll in mud, get wet or pound the pavements.
If your dog is destructive due to boredom, you need to get more activities into their lives.
If your dog is destructive due to anxiety, you need to reduce the anxiety in their lives.
Dogs need to chew, not only when they are puppies. Their strong canine jaws need an outlet for their energy and, if no appropriate chewable items are present, dogs will seek their own.
Supply your dog with a range of chewable items of different sizes and textures. If your dog gets bored with toys easily, rotate these around on a daily basis. If your dog hasn't seen a toy for 5 days it's like getting a new one.
Give your dog a variety of food treats to occupy their mouth. This is great when they have to be left alone. An occupied mouth is a quiet one. Ensure, however, that whatever items you leave your dog with, they are safe.
Oh and be as tidy as you can! Shut doors or place precious belongings away, out of your dog's reach.
Rolling in mud or poo solutions
You need to take charge if you do not want your dog to roll. Keep them on a lead and reward them for not attempting to roll. Make sure that you give them enough physical and mental stimulation too. Stay calm - dogs can always be bathed!
To prevent your dog escaping, adequate fencing is the best solution. Build it high and underground, if necessary. Double fences, floppy tops and ensuring no climbing spots or furniture nearby will help. Prevent boredom by giving your dog exercise and mental games to play. Tips for separation anxiety here. You dog needs to find your backyard fun with stimulating activities that vary every day.
