Why dogs bury things

Dogs like to bury things. Sometimes that means finding a bone or a toy under a fresh pile of dirt in your backyard. Other times, it may mean discovering the TV remote at the bottom of the laundry basket under all your dirty clothes, or wondering how your phone got under the couch cushion.

Though these things may seem different, they are all really signs of the same thing: your dog’s natural instinct to keep “his” things safe and protected — regardless of whether or not they’re actually his. Why do dogs do this?

How can I get my dogs to stop digging?

My boyfriend and I have three dogs. Two are Rottweilers (three years old and one year old) and one is a Labrador retriever (nine months old). Our dogs love to dig and now our backyard is in shambles. We tried burying their poop in the holes so they would not dig anymore, but that didn't stop them.

We are moving to a new house and want to break them of that habit. Is there something else we can do to stop the digging?
