This is a good article. I have two greyhounds that dig. They have been smart enough to never do it while I am there. They have a doggy door. I can close off the doggy door but this punishes me more than them. Even so, if it is closed, they still have to go out and I am not likely to stand out there the whole time. The whole digging thing has escalated and the holes now are deep, the amount of dirt thrown out excessive and it is thrown 20 or more feet, making cleanup difficult. Even when cleaned, if it rains, the result will be muddy feet. I have finally fenced off my garden areas with that orange safety fence and some green poultry fence and that is working for now in the winter. I may use some different fencing in the summer and perhaps some 16" x 16" pavers. I used smaller pavers last summer and they threw them around effortlessly. I am also letting them dig by the garage.

Good luck to all digger owners.

Great information, but quite a few typos.
