How do I stop my Dog from digging under the Fence?

How do I stop my Dog from digging under the Fence?If you have a dog, you probably have a fence. It is the easiest way to let your dog exercise without worrying about him running off. However, there is one problem; dogs don’t like being confined. So they try to jump fences or dig under fences.

A few weeks ago, we answered the question, How do I stop my Dog from jumping the Fence?” This week, we are going to focus on the other end of the problem, “How do I stop my Dog from digging under the Fence?” Fortunately, there are several ways to keep your dog from digging his way to freedom. Choosing the right solution depends on you, your dog, and your fence.

How do I stop my Dog from digging under the Fence?

  1. Do some investigating. Find out your dog is trying to escape. Watch his behavior and see what causes them to start digging. Is your dog chasing a car or another dog? Is he just bored? What is causing your dog to leave the yard?
  2. You can place rocks around the edge of your fence to impede your dog from digging. This is a pretty simple solution, but is not always the most aesthetically pleasing option.
  3. You can also bury wire in the ground to stop your dog from digging. While this is a more aesthetically pleasing option that rocks, it, however, does not stop your dog from digging. It simply stops him from escaping.
  4. Installing an electric wire around the perimeter is a great way to discourage your dog from digging.
  5. Finally, you can simply train your dog not to dig. Dogs are very receptive to training. It just takes time. But isn’t little Fido worth the effort?
