Thank you BL

Flynn is loved and babied and adored beyond description and it wasn't in anger,  just an absolute last resort to convey a message and yes it worked 

he always tries to please us with good behaviour but the digging was his thing I had to nip in the bud

I tried to teach Flynn not to bark at the fork when I was digging, he saw the earth rising and barked incessantly. I told him off and treated him whenever he was calm and quiet, he's an extremely intelligent dog that responds really well to positive training but just kept barking every time. 

I'm ashamed to admit that in the end I smacked him one time  and he's never barked at the fork again.
