We fenced off half our backyard because we wanted put up a swing set and trampoline this week.To keep the dogs from tearing them up and so we don't have to step in poo.Well they dug to the other side over night.Any ideas on what we can do?

  • The dog is digging because it's bored and separated from it's pack (you). Bring it in the house. Dogs can dig through just about anything you put up if they're determined.

  • one of my dogs does that too, we've tried bricks and other stuff but she still gets out (she can climb the fence now) so i had to put her on a 20ft chain while she's outside

  • A strand of electric fence should do the job. That's what we do!
