While digging is often something all dogs find appealing, certain breeds are more predisposed to the behavior than others. Unfortunately, many owners find digging to be a big problem, especially when yards are ruined or dogs escape from underneath fences and gates. So if you think digging is going to be a nuisance to your home, you might want to reconsider the breeds listed here:
#1 – Cairn Terrier
Cairn Terriers are small terriers from Scotland and true to any terrier breed they love digging. Originally bred to chase and hunt small game, they have maintained their excellent digging skills and their instint to search.
#2 – Bedlington Terrier
Although it looks more like a lamb than a dog, the Bedlington Terrier is an English breed that was originally used for vermin hunting in mines. Because of this, they’ve maintained their digging instincts and the ability to tear up yards and gardens if not sufficiently exercised.
#3 – Dachshund
The Dachshund was bred to dig, having short legs so it can reach into burrows for badgers and other small game. This German breed is very active and can become a nuisance digger if not properly stimulated.
