Strategically Place Rocks/boulders
You can place rocks around the areas of the fence where the dog likes to dig. This will block the dog from digging and once they try digging they won’t have any luck.
Fill in the holes with rocks or dirt
Depending on your dog you can try filling in the holes with rocks or dirt. Dirt may just encourage them to keep digging and provide constant work for you… it just depends on the dog. You can also fill in the holes with gravel which makes it harder for the dog to dig.
Train Your Dog
If you have the time and knowledge, train your dog. If you catch them digging, stop them and correct the behavior. This is your best bet because it fixes the source of the problem and will stop your dog from digging even if you move.
